A couple of years ago, I first met with mentors at Allen Global Studies Division, unsure of how I was going to pursue my journey to universities abroad. As I moved forward, the amazing team at AGSD helped me in all parts of the college application process: preparing for the SAT, TOEFL, and SAT Subject Tests; building academic and extra-curricular profiles; writing personal statements, and filling out college applications. The mentors were not only always available to solve any of my queries but they were also very friendly and supportive throughout the process.The excellent guidance that my teachers and mentors at AGSD provided is what made even the biggest goals seem possible to me. For that, I will forever be grateful to them.

I would like to thank AGSD for their continued guidance, support and motivation. The college application process is stressful in itself; the pandemic has only hightlighted this sentiment. But under the support system established at AGSD, we could enjoy the process wholeheartedly. My daughter is someone who loves to do a lot of things: writing poetry, sketching, being part of debates, MUNs, oratory contests, etc. In addition to this, she loves to pursue research driven projects, attending conferences, presenting papers, etc. I must thank her mentors for guiding her in the pursuit of her passions while balancing her academic interests. I strongly believe that a child blossoms when she does what she wants to do and I feel that AGSD is a beautiful platform to navigate such passions. Besides, I am very much touched by how personal and caring the entire team is; they have been in constant touch with her throughout this year, despite operating remotely due to the pandemic. All in all, it was a fruitful journey and I am very grateful for it. Thank you!

AGSD made the application process a cakewalk for me which allowed me to focus on the academic part only.
Not only this but also during the interviews the support was important for me to get through easily.
For writing the essays and SOP I had really great inputs for improvement.
This allowed me a new perspective in my application process and helped meimprove a lot.

Hello Everyone! I am Mrinal and I recently got an offer to study at Oxford University. This has been possible only by the efforts AGSD has put into my application along with my own. They helped me write my personal statement and guided me on how to refine it so that it truly represents my personality . During the interview round, they helped me with the mock interviews, which was extremely helpful as it helped me destress during the actual interview. Without their guidance, it would have been difficult for me to reach to this stage. I strongly recommend AGSD for students who wish to pursue their studies abroad.

Before joining AGSD, I considered the option to study abroad but had very little idea about the various aspects of the application. The mentors at AGSD helped me to not only prepare for exams like SAT and IELTS but also assisted me with the application process and develop a competitive profile I was finding it difficult to balance my time for JEE preparation, Maths Olympiad preparation and the application process. The apt advice of mentors helped me to select select universities, prepare for interviews, strengthen my essays and apply to scholarships making the entire procedure smooth.
I deeply thank AGSD for all the support!

I would like to thank AGSD for ensuring my success in receiving an offer from Oxford, the world’s best university. When I started with my application for the UK, I was very confused, I had many doubts and many questions. AGSD was there all the time, helping me navigate through the confusing process and providing me with accurate feedback. When I got an interview invite for Oxford University, AGSD helped me prepare for the interview by taking mock interviews and stimulating the real interview experience.

Before joining AGSD, I had a vague idea of what I must do to pursue my interests, but I wasn’t completely sure what my passion was. I knew that I had to take the SAT or ACT exam to study abroad, but I was less aware of the other aspects. AGSD played a key role in helping me identify my passion and working towards building a strong profile. This was perhaps the biggest takeaway from AGSD. The application process is not just about academics, but on the overall profile of a student and AGSD helped me in turning my profile considerably. Over time, AGSD questionnaires made me realize what I truly wanted to pursue, which was Physics. I was then able to do activities according to my interest, which not only enthralled me but also became an integral part of my college profile. Given academics, AGSD trained me for the SAT exam by providing various online test series during the pandemic and was in constant touch on how I could improve. Furthermore, The mentors were very focused on what the application required according to my interests. When it came to the essays, the mentors were continuously reminding me of the deadlines for the essays and tuned it in a way that was specific to me. I am very thankful to AGSD for their constant support and guidance in my college application process.

My name is Diya K Aravind. I am currently in class 12, and with the help of AGSD, I’ve become the proud recipient of various offers from universities in the UK and Canada. The Allen Global Studies Division has given me the confidence to express myself clearly with their English classes geared towards cracking the TOEFL and SAT exams. Along with these classes, they provided a lot of assistance while preparing an application essay. I sincerely believe that AGSD has helped me believe in my abilities and allowed me to reach places that would’ve been much harder to attain. A big shout-out to the whole team of AGSD and all they do. Thank you for your help.

I went to Kota for IIT preparation but saw a poster of AGSD and got to know that Allen also helps students to study abroad. So, I enrolled there as it was my dream to study abroad. The teachers at AGSD were very helpful and supportive. They helped me with all the tests like SAT, TOEFL, and IELTS along with the whole application process that is required to get into the International Universities. It was only because of AGSD that I was able to get admitted to top universities, not only that, I even got admission calls from all the universities that they told me to apply to.

I am deeply grateful to Allen Global Studies Division for the guidance during my application process. AGSD has helped me secure a bright future and one of the best universities in the world, the University of Toronto, which offered me a 200,000 $ scholarship. Accepting the admission was an unforgettable moment for me. For this, a big credit goes to Apoorv sir, Sachin sir, and their team. From the updates of the targeted universities to the profile preferences, AGSD guided me on every step of getting closer to my dream university. It was because of their excellent teachers that I managed to score 35/36 in the ACT and 800 in all three subjects SATs I attempted. While, in the end, most of the weight falls on the student, good advice and awareness are extremely essential for a student to reach his limits and AGSD helped me reach mine.

I can say from my experience that Allen Global Studies Division is the perfect place to get admission into for the best study-abroad-related guidance. With the constant guidance provided here, goals can be achieved, given that the student is actively putting his 100% by investing in the process. AGSD provides great help with mentorship and application preparations from scratch. Sachin sir and Apoorv sir have provided me with the best suggestions. They drew plans for my standardized exam preparation without adding extra stress and disturbing my regular academics. Thank you AGSD!

I am deeply thankful to the AGSD team for providing me constant support in the past 3 years. Enrolling early in the Allen Global Studies division helped me build my profile. I couldn't have succeeded to secure decent SAT Scores without my teacher's guidance on the reading and writing section. Steadily, I was able to minimize the time required in the reading section. Essay writing was one of the most crucial & challenging tasks for me. AGSD helped me understand the essays required by the different universities and write accordingly. I am grateful to my mentor and teachers to help me get the best universities to choose from for my undergraduate program.

AGSD was extremely helpful in guiding and counselling me about various career paths based on my interests and strengths. They told me about various universities and fields that I could pursue not only in the US but in Canada and the UK as well. Apart from the guidance, there were classes for SAT and ACT as well both offline and online (during the pandemic). The teachers shared various tips and resources that helped me score 1550 on the SAT. AGSD also helped me write essays and got me through with the application process. The application process became a lot smoother and easier for me thanks to AGSD.

They helped me to shape my personal story to present myself best in front of my dream universities which turned into their acceptance. Due to the AGSD team, I'm getting a chance to study at one of the elite universities of the world. I wholeheartedly thank them for my success.

Instead of looking at what lacks in me, AGSD helped me identify and use the present capabilities that will make me stand out among other applicants. My mentor and teachers at AGSD encouraged me to channel my potential into various aspects that most universities seek in their aspirants. AGSD helped me enhance my mindset by making me think about ways to reflect my talents in apt ways, hence in this journey, I learnt to develop a multidimensional thought process. Owing to this, AGSD has made me achieve what earlier seemed to be out of my reach. In this journey, I have felt that AGSD not only understands the language of words but also the language of potential and talent.

Dear AGSD team, Thank you very much for providing the required guidance to Abhiram for his undergraduate studies in Computer Science at US Universities.The numerous teaching sessions for SAT (English) and TOEFL helped Abhiram immensely and he was able to perform well. Apoorv sir helped Abhiram extensively in choosing the right universities and we were pleasantly surprised when Abhiram got accepted into 8 universities. I am pleased to say that Abhiram finally decided to study at Ohio State University for his BS (CSE). Thank you again for providing wonderful support and guidance. With regards and best wishes

I am Riya Kesarwani from Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh. I would like to thank Allen Global Studies Division (AGSD) for their support and guidance. I belong to a middleclass family and I never thought of studying abroad after secondary education. However, AGSD made my dream come true. It gave me information about every little thing and helped me in many ways. With the help of AGSD, I got offer from university with scholarship. Moreover, AGSD helped me in the preparation of IELTS exam. Furthermore, it is helping me in the visa process. I can say that you can achieve your dream with right guidance and patience. Again, I would like to thank AGSD for guiding me and clearing all my doubts towards studying abroad.

I had always dreamt high, always wanted to achieve every possible target of my age, in terms of the entrances of India and admits into US colleges. However, I was not sure how I would manage it all. Allen Global Studies Division (AGSD) served as an absolute backbone and gave me the confidence, courage, and of course the right guidance and resources towards what I WANTED TO DO. My mentors are exceptional individuals who know how to carve the child's path keeping in mind her wishes, capacity, limitations, and future prospects. They helped me in every aspect of the application process, from choosing which colleges were best for me, making timelines, going over my essays, and destressing me from time to time. At any time of the day, I had them to reach out to for help, and they were always on toes for me. I am very grateful to AGSD for making me who I am today.

College application for US universities is very different from the exam based process in India and thus it makes it very difficult to complete an application worthy of approval by solo effort. This is where I got very useful help from the Global Division at Allen in writing the essays and all other application stuff which made my application to MIT better than what it would have been. I also got excellent training for the SAT and TOEFL tests which are a requirement when applying for foreign universities. This helped me strengthen my English and achieve a good score in those tests which has definitely contributed to making my application attractive to prospective universities (MIT in my case). I would like to sincerely thank AGSD for all the help and support I received from them.

Like most of the students preparing for JEE, I was finding it difficult to get time to manage my applications for other universities. I am very grateful to mentors at Allen Global Studies Division , who not only helped me prepare for the SAT but also took the burden of reminding me of deadlines when a particular application was due. Precisely they know it well what, when and how to do and what not to. Thank you for making me what I am today!

AGSD supported me at every stage of application – starting with identification of professional goals, building profile suiting my personality type and goal that we decided, taking into consideration our financial status, appropriate university selection for application, applying to foreign universities, helping me in essays and more. More than that, it was the continuous motivation and unending support that gave me the necessary boost to go ahead with my dream of pursuing UG from world’s best universities. AGSD Mentors are very professional yet friendly. I thank AGSD for all their support.

As a middle schooler, the best STEM higher education I knew of was IITs. I went to Kota to compete with many others pursuing the same dream. However, while in Kota, I learnt about education abroad, and its ever growing significance in today’s context. Then, after being referred to, I met my mentors. Then my life changed for the good. They helped me through every step of US university applications–SAT/TOEFL preparation, application essays, interview preparation and much more. They worked selflessly and diligently to help me get admits. The whole application process would be, if not impossible then definitely sub-par without their help! My mentors did not only help me with the application but also encouraged and supported me psychologically to pursue my US university dream and turn it into a reality. I definitely wouldn't be where I am currently, at Purdue University studying Computer Science with minor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, without their help and support. Now I genuinely believe in the motto "Allen Hai To Mumkin Hai!"

It is not by sheer luck or chance that your child achieves his dream stream but it is the combined effort of teachers, students and parents. In our case we are sincerely grateful to Allen Global Studies Division (AGSD), Kota for enlightening and encouraging my son Vatsal Gupta to fulfil his dreams. He is pursuing Aero-Space Engineering from T.U. Delft, Netherlands [Which is actually a dream come true].

It was by chance that we got acquainted with the institute in the mid session of class XII. We thought it was too late for preparing for international universities admission but AGSD not only gave great contribution in building his profile, in such a short time but also helped him in improving his skills for taking TOEFL and ACT. They vigorously searched various renowned international universities [including T.U. Delft] suitable for him and assisted in filling and submitting the application for admission. The procedure was new to him but the mentors were available even in the mid of night to help him. They also gave him tips for efficiently taking JEE, VITEE and XII Board exams. They encouraged him to try for various scholarships programmes available internationally. It is obvious that the mentors not only consider the intellectual aspect of a student but also financial affordability of the guardians.

We could say that they stimulated the dormant wave in Vatsal to propagate in multi-dimension resulting in his intensified persona. The change in his personality, confidence, creativity [writing skills] after their encouragement could be clearly inferred. They made him aware of various competitions and the eligibility criteria required for admissions in various universities and polished his psyche, soma and skills to easily fit in the requirement.

They created a spark in him not by tough disciplined teaching methodology but by fun, cool & friendly way; so their most efficient part was that everything was done by pressure-free way, in a time when the students face great stress in this competitive world.

I could not describe their contribution in moulding my son’s future in few words, there is more to say. I am heartily thankful to them in their hard work and genuine effort to support my son’s career building.

Allen Global Studies Division is an encouraging platform for all the students to truly make their dreams come true. With the constant support provided here, my journey to get into MIT became smooth and joyful.

They helped me with mentorship, application process, essays and interview preparations. My mentors have relentlessly worked to strengthen my profile. They meticulously drew plans for my standardized test preparation, activities and internship courses without disturbing my regular studies and preparation for Medical entrance examinations. I wouldn’t be here without their guidance and support. Thank you AGSD.

Allen's Global Studies Division has made the impossible seem possible by helping me throughout the application process. They have helped me by reviewing my essays and providing drafts for LORs which has enabled me to submit a competent application while equally being able to focus on studying for competitive examinations in India.

They are well versed with the knowledge of universities, their requirements and processes. The best part was they were always available at any time of the day to help me.
