I was looking for a place where I could get proper guidance and exposure to events and let me personally meet university representatives. Then one morning, I saw an article about the IKC in the newspaper. I wanted to try it and signed up for a meeting with the office with the help of the contact information given in the article.

People at the office were so friendly and helpful. We sat down and started discussing about US education, how to reach for it, what are the procedures and all that. They gave me a few sheets which instructed me about planning and steps to be taken, the exams I need to complete and by when. That meeting, brought out the true potential in me. I just followed the simple steps according to the IKC, took the exams seriously and visited events organized at the IKC where I got a chance to speak one-to-one with top university admission officers. It helped me take firm decisions about my life and future. Finally, all the hard work, dedication and IKC’s support payed off.

And now, I will be going to the US as a freshmen/ first year undergraduate student and will be studying pre-med. The completely free and outstanding service and guidelines suggested by my counselor, Rebecca, at the IKC is one among the core reasons for me to achieve my dream.

If I had not heard of the IKC, I would never ever experience such a quality resource and would have been ended up waiting for my CET/JEE/NEET ranks and hoping to get a good placement and completely miss the experience and exposure I would get in the US which will bring out my true potential.

I will always be grateful towards team IKC for its contribution in changing my life and ensuring me a bright future. Thank you.

Every single year, millions and millions of students around the world apply to college. These students have millions and millions of schools to choose from. With such an extensive array of options, it’s easy to get lost in the buzz of it all. But, with the right guidance, it’s possible to find your “perfect fit” school. And IKC is the extra-features-ultra-powerful GPS of college guidance systems.

It’s important to keep your bearings straight. Guidance goes a long way, and IKC is really rather good at providing that. From helping me sort out and decide which colleges to apply to, to reading through my umpteen essay drafts, to providing me an opportunity to meet with college representatives (that Saturday afternoon spent at the college fair they organized was absolutely incredible), IKC truly has been the wind in my sails, and Becky an essential helping hand. Like a lot of things this year, working with IKC started off as pure coincidence: running into Ms. Sheela, the director, at the SATs. That one small interaction opened the doors to the godsend that is IKC.

IKC proved their role in being the best thing for Anisha, considering her upbringing. They have also guided us as a family throughout the application procedure, answered my questions, dismissed doubts and assured that they were with us even after the admission process was done. There were choices to be made during the whole process and the IKC played a pivotal role in debating the pros and cons of the options available. In short, they were like an extended family with their guidance.

Working with the IKC was effortless as we had discussions and debates like one would have at a dining table. They were always approachable at any time and the best example of this was when we were at Chennai for the visa interview; a counselor called and briefed us about what to expect. Even though a staff member was on leave they made sure to call and counseled Anisha as to how to tackle the questions she was up against; this was despite the fact we had met earlier in Bangalore and went through the pre departure orientation.
