College Admissions Consulting for India
The Institute of International Education estimates that approximately 102,000 Indian students are attending college in the United States, a figure that many expect to rise significantly over the next several years. India is the second most popular place of origin for international students studying in the United States, as students from India account for 11.6 percent of the total international student population.
India’s families often cite their country’s shortage of competitive institutions and America’s less rigid educational system as reasons for applying to colleges and universities in the United States. Their reasons are justified, as even the most accomplished students having difficulty earning admission into India’s best colleges, such as Delhi University and the Indian Institute of Technology, and arguably because India’s best students can receive an equal or better education at a number of American colleges—in the Ivy League and elsewhere. However, as they seek entry into American higher education, many of India’s students have difficulty finding adequate college admissions guidance and advice. Most counselors in India lack understanding about the American college admissions process, and most counselors in the United States are unfamiliar with the unique challenges India’s students face when attempting to access U.S. higher education.
For more than a decade, College Transitions counselors and admissions consultants have strived to improve the quality of college guidance and information in India, helping dozens of Indian students secure admission at America’s most competitive colleges and universities, including Harvard, MIT, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, Princeton, Dartmouth, Duke, Brown, Williams, Cornell, Penn, Swarthmore, Northwestern, the University of Chicago and many more. In the past several years, we have worked with students in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, and Pune, who attend a variety of secondary schools and junior colleges, such as St. Xavier’s, St. Joseph’s, Ramnarain Ruia, Christ Junior, and Cathedral & John Connon, among others.
