At the heart of university admissions process lies the candidate. Each candidate possesses a unique set of credentials, capabilities, passions and stories that make them who they are today and defines their potential for the future. Jhumur works towards understanding the individual as a whole as she partners with them to craft their application, especially the essays.
It is Jhumur's belief that the essay component of the application package is critical in representing a captivating narrative; one that brings together the relevant elements of a candidate’s life experiences, achievements, and capabilities in a way that speaks to their truest self and their passions. All this while weaving in what attracts them to the university, program and their future career goals. To this end, Jhumur works diligently to:
- Inventory & Analyze Client Background: in order to identify education and career interests and explore universities and delineate customized themes emerging for each individual to include in their admissions packet;
- Provide Analytic and Decision Frameworks and Consulting: to facilitate an assessment of fit with universities/programs and finalize shortlist of universities and programs to apply to based on college visits and other research; and
- Conduct Essay Consultation: while using a storyboarding technique that enables methodical analysis of essay questions, matches the candidate's profile with the university's values and program direction, and leverages dynamic dashboard to identify specific themes and experiences to include in each essay
