Admissions Consulting

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

“At critical times such as while applying to various universities for higher studies in a completely new environment we need a guiding light to help us... Jhumur has been exactly that for my family and me... I was already under another counseling organization and was really regretting my choice and thought all was done for when just one day before my first University deadline I got in touch with Jhumur. She guided me like family with the right balance between realistic thinking and enthusiasm that I needed at that moment of helplessness.

Thanks to her guidance and support I have been accepted in the University of Maryland, College Park..(the 10th best University of USA for my course, HCI.. ) I thank Jhumur for helping me at such a crucial time of my career..

After experiencing multiple counseling centers I would definitely recommend her to any and everyone planning for their higher studies.”

"As a client of Jhumur Singhal, I found her service to be extremely effective and efficient. I initially had a very weak essay, however, after consulting her, I was able to shape up my essay to make it very strong and have got over 5 university offers ever since. The help she gave me was unconditional and on each iteration, she closely analysed my essay and helped me improve and change it.

Whether it was the introduction, the main body or the conclusion, she helped me in every step and provided her expert insight in order to help me make a strong personal statement. Furthermore, the service was more than just the essay but also helping me decide universities as well as helping me decide courses based on my personality and grades. Overall, the service she provided was highly professional and effective."
