This startup claims it’s the most ‘liked’ college consultancy group on Facebook

It boasts of over 1,200 likes as of January.

Collegify has diverse team of mentors comprising graduates from leading global universities, including Yale, Columbia, MIT, Virginia Tech, Rutgers (USA), Imperial College (UK), Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Management University (Singapore), amongst others.

Additionally, co-founder Rohan Pasari boasts that by having an NTU faculty member on its team, whose prior experience includes not only studying and teaching in leading universities in the US but also being part of admissions committees, provides a great value addition to their clients.

With particular emphasis on providing quality personalized attention, Pasari notes that Collegify uses technology to structure the college application process and make the students college ready. “We believe that every student is different, and Collegify strives to find the “perfect fit” for every individual by bringing clarity and in-depth knowledge to the process. Unlike the agency model, where the service is not student-centric and students are ‘encouraged’ to study at partner universities, at Collegify, mentorship is provided with the best interests of the student in mind and strives to help them enter their dream universities.”

In the current (on going) application season for Fall 2013 admissions, Pasari said that Collegify has already helped students get accepted into Wharton, Brown, Cambridge, Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt University (100% scholarship for MBA), with several other results still pending.

“Previously, students from Collegify have been accepted into Yale, Harvard, Cornell, Columbia, Stanford, UC-Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon, Oxford, UCL, and Imperial, just to name a few. We take pride in our 100% placement record with students working with us for five or more colleges.”

On Facebook, Pasari claims that they are the most ‘liked’ applications consulting group in Singapore with over 1,200 likes as of Jan 2013.

Recognizing that innovation spurs both quality and growth, Collegify is introducing a revolutionary online platform to restructure the entire college application process for undergraduate, postgraduate, and MBA students.

“ “Collegify.com”, which is our proprietary web portal, will host this tool starting April 2013. We understand that the college application process can be tedious and stressful. Students often struggle to manage multiple applications and tend to be very confused when pursuing the various options available for their tertiary education.”

According to Pasari, Collegify.com’s online application system will provide a comprehensive set of tools to help students structure their applications in an easy and efficient manner. “We will provide them with a complete suite of solutions that will be helpful to students when applying to their dream universities.”

Besides the portal, Collegify aims to venture into other areas in the education space through career workshops, entrepreneurship seminars, and speaker series.
