For the past 12 months I have had the pleasure of working with Namita Gupta. Namita has provided College Consulting services for my son Vincent, a high school senior.  Vincent’s college search has been a bit more complicated as he wanted to study music industry.  My husband and I are not musicians, so we thought it would be best to seek additional help.

Namita was amazing! She kept Vincent on task, making sure he completed his applications, essays, resume, and online auditions on time. She also helped him to formulate his college list.  She asked him many questions and really listened to him, this helped him to understand what type of school would fit him best.

Vincent wrote two essays for the common application.  One essay was very heartfelt and talked about how amazed he was with the musicians at a Jazz Camp he attended. He spoke about how they played music that he didn’t even know was possible, and how excited he was to learn those skills in the future. The second essay was much more formal and spoke about work he had done at school and in the community.  Namita read both and suggested he use the first essay. I believe this was a key factor in Vincent getting accepted with scholarship to so many of the schools he applied to. Vincent was accepted into his dream school, one of the top music schools in the country.

Namita also provides great tools to help you make informed choices such as the Knavigator website, which allows your student to research colleges from credible and informative sources. She will make many suggestions to help boost your student’s college resume. She knows what colleges want based on years of research and experience.

I am so glad we choose to work with Namita.  She took the time to get to know our son.  She also created a collaborative environment where we were all working toward one goal. We had such a great experience working with Namita that we have asked her to work with our daughter, as well. I wholeheartedly recommend Namita. She is an experienced College Consultant who understands each student as an individual. She will help your son or daughter to succeed in their college aspirations.
