  • Building your profile via internships, jobs, and volunteering

University Shortlists

There are over 5000+ universities and colleges in the US, as well as another 200+ in Canada. While there is a plethora of information online about each of these, there is no way to verify whether the information is up-to-date and factual.

With our 17+ years of experience working with 10,000+ students, we intimately understand the nuances of each of the top schools and programs in various fields. We visit campuses, host exclusive information sessions, and constantly seek feedback from our past students to know which are the best programs.

Our personalized approach means that we create a shortlist of universities that met your personal and professional goals. We take into consideration your background, your experience, your requirements such as geography, scholarship etc. to identify the best colleges in “ambitious”, “target” and “safety” school categories.

In our process we will:

  • Understand your preferences of program, geography, cost as well as your profile
  • Explain opportunity outlook for programs of choice
  • Provide a comprehensive list of universities and programs that are best-fit for you
  • Prepare a list of 12-15 universities in “ambitious”, “target” and “safety” categories
  • Provide an Excel worksheet with details such as GRE/ TOEFL/IELTS requirements, application deadlines, and expected expense per year in USD

Application Forms

We walk our students through the complete application process, including how to fill out application forms as well as prepare and attach the relevant required documents.

For our students, we will:

  • Explain the application form
  • Guide the document preparation process
  • Fill out up to 6 application forms online

Resume Development

The resume is an essential document for the application process. It gives colleges a one-stop-shop glance at your academic and professional record and conveys the impact you have been able to make so far.

At Disha, we guide you to create the most effective resume and help you clearly communicate your experience in an easy to read format.

We will provide:

  • Content guidance
  • Formatting guidance
  • Answers any questions

Statement of Purpose

The statement of purpose (SOP) is one of the most critical parts of the application. In this essay, students have to effectively convey why they are interested in the program they are applying to and what makes them a good fit for the program.

A compelling SOP can help students overcome barriers to admission such as a lack of work experience or a less-than-amazing academic track record.

At Disha, we have a tried and tested brainstorming process to highlight the most impactful and interesting stories from your life so far. We go beyond the resume to help you bring out the unique traits that will differentiate your application from other students.

Our SOP writing process will provide:

  • Brainstorming guidance to identify key achievements
  • Assistance with writing and editing a common draft across applications
  • Advice on customizations for each university


Beyond your academic and professional record, a recommendation is a strong vote of confidence from your employer or professors that you are capable of making an impact. It is necessary to pick the right recommenders who are able to speak to your achievements and give them the appropriate guidance so they paint the best, most accurate picture of you.

To this end, we provide:

  • Guidance on selecting recommenders
  • Highlighting stories and instances of your success that they can chat about
  • Help with any questions your recommenders may have
