Leveraging his interests helped him build unique extra-curriculars

– Aadesh, Boston University

A student at the B.D. Somani International School, Aadesh was keen to pursue business at a US university. Making sure that his extra-curricular activities reflected his interests, Aadesh interned at K.P. Sanghavi and Sons: Real Estate, where he helped create an app to increase the company’s consumer reach domestically and internationally. Aadesh also interned at FRR Shares, where he understood the working of a brokerage and consultancy firm, along with the stock and bond market.

During his internship, he developed an understanding of the different factors affecting the stock market and their impact on the global and Indian economy, such as Brexit, which happened during the span of his internship. Aadesh analyzed primary data and stock prices of various automobile companies such as Tata Motors and Baja Auto and prepared a report with the data and results using SWOT approach and stock analysis.

In school, Aadesh was also a member of the B.D. Business and also honed his debate and research skills as a confident and enthusiastic MUNNer. A talented sportsman, Aadesh swam competitively till the 9th grade and also played badminton and cricket for his school teams.

We helped  Aadesh identify colleges with strong business and entrepreneurship programs as well as brainstormed the essays for the college applications. Aadesh applied to many colleges that he had never heard of before he came to The Red Pen and researched them after our suggestions. Aadesh will be going to Boston University this fall.

The fundamental role of independent educational consultants is to help students explore college opportunities and find the right place for them to succeed academically and socially. IECs don’t get students admitted—they help students demonstrate why they deserve to be admitted at appropriately chosen schools. They help students find colleges they might not have heard of—often out of their region—and they help students put their best foot forward.

Here are 5 things families should consider when looking to hire an IEC:

  1. Does the IEC belong to a professional association such as IECA with established and rigorous standards for membership?
  2. Do not trust any offers of guaranteed admission to a school or a certain minimum dollar value in scholarships.
  3. Ensure that the IEC adheres to the ethical guidelines for private counseling established by IECA.
  4. Find an IEC that visits college, school, and program campuses and meets with admissions representatives regularly in order to keep up with new trends, academic changes and evolving campus cultures.
  5. Do they attend professional conferences or training workshops on a regular basis to keep up with regional and national trends and changes in the law?
