Galvanize’s personalized day-by-day study plan was well-organized and took the planning on my part out of the test-prep work. The easily accessible online software platform and Mobile App are a boon for busy students like meThe study material was detailed and thorough. The vocabulary lists were exhaustive and the Math Review slides were useful in brushing up all the basics. The 5 full length Mock tests were excellent and helped me face the real test with confidence. The course manager was just a text message away and responded to my questions and doubts promptly, sometimes even after office hours and on holidays.

Galvanize GRE prep provided for all my needs at a reasonable price. The study material was good, starting every topic from the basics and giving tips then and there about the actual GRE.I had literally forgotten the basics of many topics in mathematics and the Galvanize study material brushed up every topic in a way that I could understand them easily.I didn’t feel like I was taking an online course because it was so simplified that I felt as if there was a tutor near me, teaching me. Verbal word lists were designed like a game and was fun to learn.After each test, the data analytics report showed how well I’d done and what I needed to improve on. It also kept track of my progress, showing me how much I had to study more to realize my goal. The Study plan provided by the Course Manager was really helpful. It was spread properly based on the time I had and helped me get the confidence that I could do well if I stuck to the study plan.

One of the nice things about Galvanize is that their price is so affordable! Moreover, the GRE faculty teach the video lessons with such simplicity that even a novice like me could understand the concepts. I liked the GRE program at Galvanize, which is why I enrolled with Galvanize for Admission Counseling. As per my request, my Admission Counsellors shortlisted 6 universities based on my scores. They explained the procedure via a Google Hangouts call. I must say that the best thing is that Galvanize helps us help ourselves. I wrote all my SOPs, essays, etc and the Galvanize team reviewed it and gave their valuable suggestions. They helped me fine-tune my essays. The team also reviewed my application forms! I am still in the process of submitting my applications, and help from Galvanize is always extended. I have received admits from 2 reputed universities (Stevens Institute of Technology, New Jersey, and Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago) – thank you, Galvanize!

The learning material for the Quants section was very useful as it had all the concepts in a nutshell.

The full-length Mock tests and Section tests were precisely modelled on the actual GRE test pattern. The Analytics Reports sent after each mock test clearly highlighted my strengths and areas that needed improvement. The course manager was regularly in touch with me throughout the preparation period, being available for help through Whatsapp at any time of the day.I also found the Galvanize app very useful and user-friendly.

The biggest hurdle is the beginning of preparation when students are often lost as where to start. This is where the day-wise study plan motivates you to begin from day 1 slowly and steadily.The online portal is neatly divided into sections so that you can follow everything carefully. Both the Quant and Verbal sections have a good variety of questions. The personalized feedback after each mock test is another advantage in the test prep with Galvanize. It helps you realize where you are actually going wrong.The detailed analytics given after each test can help you narrow down your focus on specific topics. The best part of Galvanize Prep was the personal mentor who is just a message away. You can text them anytime you have a confusion and they are always ready to help you out.

When I first took my GRE, I was very unhappy with my Verbal score of 149 (41st percentile). I looked for GRE mobile apps on Google Playstore and found the Galvanize GRE app. After spending some time on the app, I decided that their online GRE course would be perfect for me. As it turned out, the online course was indeed very suitable for me as I was a working professional and couldn’t give a lot of time for my GRE preparation. The daily schedule they gave was great as I could take my preparation “one day at a time”. The video lessons were crystal clear and I was finally able to understand how to approach the questions. The mock tests were also really helpful in preparing me for the actual GRE exam and I was able to find out the areas where I made the most mistakes. In the end I was able to get a Verbal score of 156 (71st percentile) – a huge 31 percentile point jump when compared to my previous attempt. I am extremely satisfied with Galvanize Test Prep! Thanks to you guys, I’m now doing my Masters in Computer Science at Columbia University, New York – an Ivy League school! 🙂

First of all, kudos to the entire team of Galvanize Test Prep for the relentless support and help that they have provided me over my entire course duration. Also, as I work in an IT firm and can manage time only in the weekends, the test plan was perfect for me, as it was prepared in such a way that the majority of the tasks and sessions were kept for the weekend while the weekdays had relaxing sessions of short duration. This helped me manage my studies along with work. For every doubt/concern raised by a student, the guides and experts are ever ready to respond with answers on the portal itself. I have scored 328 in my second attempt and they totally deserve the credit for this. I would recommend every GRE aspirant to go for Galvanize Test Prep as you would be assured of a higher, “Galvanized” score.

The portal has enough practice tests that one doesn’t have to look for any other source.The feedback report that comes after every mock test is very precise that they even mention the question numbers and tell you what kind of mistake you have made and what steps you need to take to correct them.My course managers were doing a wonderful follow-up of my schedule.

Akshara Prasad, Calicut India

GRE Score- 326 Verbal- 156 Quant- 170

National Institute of Technology, Calicut

I took my GRE general test on 14th of August 2019. I just received my scorecard few days ago and I scored 326/340 in total, and 170/170 in quants and 156/170 in verbal. And a 5.5/6 in AWA i.e. the essays.

Before studying for the test, I considered several online coaching classes such as GRE Edge, Magoosh and Galvanize. While Magoosh did have several solved questions and detailed solutions, I did not find it that useful since I would not be in contact with anybody from Magoosh and any problem I face will take a lot of time to be resolved. GRE Edge just wasn’t as appealing.

After carefully going through the details of the course offered by Galvanize, I decided to give it a chance.

I took a 45-days GRE prep course and the first thing I liked about Galvanize was how neatly my study plan was made. There were tasks from Verbal, Quants and AWA that were laid out categorically and a recommended day to complete it. In the diagnostic test that I took, the solutions to each question was explained neatly and informative statistics were given about my overall performance which helped me analyse my strong and weak areas.

The study plan did not start me off with the difficult tasks. This helped me get adjusted to the course. The tasks’ difficulty increased gradually and I faced no problem keeping up with the expected pace. In case I lagged behind my schedule by a few days, my course manager would remind me to keep up with the study plan. This helped with the procrastination bit.

I was also asked to take 5 mock tests, dispersed across my study plan. After each test, I got a personalised email noting my strong and weak areas and where I fell short. On top of all this, my course manager would keep track of my progress, my score in each test and would guide me to study better. My essays were also graded and I received important personalised tips that helped me improve my essay writing from a 3/6 in first mock test to a 5.5/6 in the actual GRE test.

At the end I scored 170/170 in Quants which was expected and 156/170 in verbal which was somewhere around the expected score. I was amazed to know that I scored 5.5/6 in AWA. The Galvanize team congratulated me at the end and assured that they would assist me if I require their help later on, which was endearing.

All in all, I would definitely recommend Galvanize for GRE preparation.

All the best for your exams. 🙂

It would have to be Galvanize, for me. I booked my GRE date as a motivation to study but found myself under-prepared as the test date approached. Galvanize crash course seemed like a good option for my situation. Question-type(Verbal) and section-wise(both) tests were extremely helpful. The difficulty level was on par with most GRE guides. They promptly reminded me of upcoming mock tests and gave helpful pointers to improve my score based on my last mock test performance. All in all, these factors enabled me to focus and give a good GRE performance.

Galvanize is not just any other commercial coaching centre, but one that truly wants students to achieve better marks. Frankly, that’s why I joined.The software platform was very interactive and had a good UI that made the platform less boring.The Course Manager was easily the best part of the course. For lazy people like me, it is necessary for someone to be on our backs reminding us of our Mock Tests and course schedule.

I was generally skeptical about GRE coaching classes as I felt that they do not provide personal attention. But Galvanize changed my preconceived notion. Their analytics and feedback after every Mock Test were extremely useful and ensured that I didn’t make the same mistakes and also it threw light on my weaknesses and helped me prepare better. I believe I made the right choice as the Course Manager used to constantly remind me about the series of tests and helped stay right on track when I used to deviate from the plan. I would definitely recommend Galvanize as they genuinely take the effort to help students understand where their pitfalls are and how to overcome them.

The preparedness status displayed on the homepage was what pushed me towards completing the everyday assignments and tasks of the online study plan. The analytics reports were interactive and visually pleasing. Also, the comprehensive feedback reports provided at the end of the mock tests helped me rectify my mistakes. I regularly used the both the GRE and Vocab mobile apps. Both helped me practice on the go. The course managers played a crucial role in keeping me motivated . They were highly accommodating of my demands and really pushed me towards the end goal. I am indebted to them.

The personalized study plan, the availability of a course manager and the wealth of material available for practice and study on the portal just makes the whole process of studying for the test highly systematic and streamlined. The feature that motivated me most however was the projected score feature. Just watching the projected score go up by one or two points would push me to work harder and get closer to my target score.

I was given a personalised study plan which was based on the scores taken in the diagnostic test. That plan was really awesome and one who sticks to that plan can get a good score in the GRE. The platform has pre-recorded videos and the timed tests for all the topics covered in the GRE and it has platforms for discussion where you can clarify your doubts with both classmates and teachers. The most fascinating thing about Galvanize is that a Course Manager will be allotted who gives personal guidance and constant motivation.Finally, enrolling for a GRE course at Galvanize is worth it and one can get a good score if one sticks to the Study Plan and studies persistently without giving up.

I gave my GRE without coaching for the first time and scored a total of 307. Not a good score, I know, but I was hugely disappointed because I had tried a lot of questions in Verbal, particularly RC, and almost all the RCs in Manhattan 5 Lb, but that was not helping and the results were bad. Then I downloaded some apps on the phone to practice on the phone as well. One such app was the Galvanize GRE app. They offered me an online course that would best suit my job with flexibility to practice. Moreover, I had 5 full-length GRE mock tests at hand to practice. These tests were analyzed by the Verbal and Quant experts to give a detailed feedback where I was lagging and where I was strong. They also prepared a full study plan for Verbal and Quant till the last day of my preparation. This study plan was particularly important as it helped me keep up with the pace, and kept me going even when it got boring or frustrating at times. The lectures and practice tests, segregated by topics, both in verbal and quant, really helped in understanding the concept, and the tips and tricks provided helped to solve questions faster. As a result, when I took the GRE the second time after a month, I scored 321 (165+156).

I had enrolled for the 3 month GRE program offered by Galvanize Test Prep. The program was well planned and suited to my needs. It ensured that I studied regularly which is needed and often the biggest challenge faced by students. The study plan was flexible and could be changed if needed. I got enough support from the team of experts and coordinators. I would highly recommend Galvanize.

I highly recommend Galvanize Test Prep.I began using the vocabulary mobile application and later chose the Verbal Crash Course that Galvanize offers. Word learning was made more enjoyable thanks to the corresponding synonyms and visual representation provided alongside each word. The Crash Course was conducted on a whole other level. Each day was scheduled to be better than the last. The video lessons, practice questions, mock exams and vocabulary lists were incredible. I would highly recommend Galvanize, not only for the aforementioned reasons, but also, for the wonderful experience I had with the course managers. The rapport we developed far exceeded my expectations.

The full-length tests were so helpful that I got the knack for solving quant problems and also realized where I was lacking in the Quant section. The online software platform was user-friendly. It showed how I progressed during the whole time. The data analytics and feedback that I got after every test was very important in my preparation. Most importantly, the time table that was provided to me proved to be extremely beneficial as I am a working professional.

Hi, my name is Sarvesh Prabhakar and I am currently in the final year of my undergraduation ( B.Tech) in mechanical engineering from SRM Institute of Science and Technology.I wanted to do my Masters in Aerospace Engineering because it has always an area of interest for me, ever since my childhood.After I was done with my GRE, I began to think about the application process. I had heard some very positive feedback from several of my friends about Galvanize’s admission process. So I signed up for the admission counseling. The thing that sets apart Galvanize from others is the systematic step by step approach to each stage of the admission process with a huge amount of individual focus given to every student.The shortlisting of universities, in my opinion, is the most important thing in this whole process and it was very carefully done, on my behalf, based on my profile.Yes, its true that a very appealing & strong intent of interest is to be displayed in your SOP/LOR which is the key criteria in bagging the admission from the reputed university. This is where Galvanize was a life saver for me, they ensured my SOP was a reflection of my thoughts & Skills and they in fact made 3 iterations of my SOP. So when I saw my final SOP it was so convincing for me that I submitted that with 100% confidence.A BIG YES, very much I got admit from University which I intended. This is where Galvanize stands a notch above anyone , they made me go inside the university which I intended, they didn’t push me into some affiliate university.

I was not too confident of my chances of getting an admit in Computer Science. That’s when I decided to take the help of Galvanize’s Admissions Counseling. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. They helped me shortlist universities, helped me streamline my SOP and other essays. They saw my SOP through multiple iterations, helping me play my strong suit in each of those essays.  One of the things I liked most were the quick replies. Having a personal advisor really paid off!  Finally, I got multiple admits including one from my dream university!
It goes without saying that Galvanize played an important role in getting me into the university I most desired.

I’m a recent graduate of Electronic Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. I recently took the GRE exam and scored a 336 in total (169 in Verbal & 167 in Quant). I was looking for quality GRE vocab apps when I came across the Galvanize vocab app and I really liked it. I then did some research and found their free GRE diagnostic test on their website. I took the test and I really loved it. That’s why I chose to sign up for their services. One of the things I really loved about Galvanize is that they give you a fixed study schedule based on your performance in the diagnostic test. It was amazing because it gave me daily activities for each of the 45 days that I’d signed up for. My experience was very intensive.

This I felt was in sharp contrast to other GRE prep service providers who only give you access to the question pool and leave you to it.  The Quant questions were constantly being updated and I thought they were really good. There is a very interactive discussion section where you can discuss and get your doubts cleared by the Verbal & Quant expert. I really liked the practice tests and the mock tests as well. I took 5 mock tests which were amazing because they really did simulate the real GRE test. They’ve done a really good job of having their mock tests be as close as possible to the real GRE. They also assign a personal coach (“course manager”) to every student. My course manager followed up with me every few days to ensure I was on track. This interactive experience I had was amazing. I do not know which other service providers can claim to provide such a level of personalization. I highly recommend Galvanize to anybody looking for that personalized touch to their GRE preparation.

Tata Institute of Social Sciences

I recently took the GRE after having enrolled with Galvanize for their 45-day crash course. I scored 164 in Verbal and 166 in Quant on my first attempt. Reasons for why Galvanize was helpful are as follows-

  1. Galvanize suited me because they had a plan which fit within my time-limit and was affordable for me. I also felt that with my basic knowledge I did not need more than 45 days as that would only lead to burn-out. But for those who need more time, Galvanize has longer packages which I felt were more economical than the ones in the market.
  2. I liked the general layout of the Galvanize platform as it made doing tasks systematic. I’m a check-box type of person so I like to set short goals and check them off my list. For that, Galvanize provided short tasks on a daily basis that I just had to finish without worrying about what to do next.
  3. Both the Verbal and Quant sections of Galvanize were comprehensive and focused on getting basics right to solve every question. I also preferred to understand general strategies rather than learning how to do every sum. For that, the Galvanize instructors were very helpful as they did not hesitate to digress during the lesson if some helpful strategy or concept needed to be discussed.

My experience was that you need to be smart about how you spend your time preparing. Know your strengths and know your weaknesses. Move within the sections as that turned out to be the biggest lesson that Galvanize taught me !

I found the course I’d enrolled for appealing and comprehensive. The platform was evenly split between Verbal and Quant. I found a course appealing  and comprehensive. And also had adequate material for analytical writing! I mostly relied on the mock tests and the feedback that was delivered to me at the end of that.

The feedback was very insightful and it really pinpointed my weak points and that gives you a good insight into what exactly are your weaknesses and what you really read to improve on.

Apart from that, what I believe really helped me achieve my target score of GRE  was the GRE vocabulary app that Galvanized has on the Playstore.

Galvanize Test Prep course I think is a one-stop solution – you really don’t need to refer to any other material out there in the market. You should just follow your GRE study plan that is outlined in your course, keep in touch with your course manager and pay attention to the constant feedback you get. Thanks a lot again Galvanize.

I would strongly recommend Galvanize Test Prep for the GRE. I prepared for 2.5 months, averaging 3-4 hrs/day

For the Quant Section – The tests on the online platform of Galvanize have a plethora of questions for each topic with different difficulty levels which would be the perfect preparation for test day.

By practising on the Galvanize platform as well as additionally on Readtheory, the tricks to solve the RC’s can easily be mastered. Galvanize will also personally guide you if you are finding it difficult to understand on your own. I also found that the Galvanize Vocab builder was very helpful when it came to learning GRE words.

That being said how you prepare is very important – Focus on your mistakes and why you made it. That is the most important thing which will increase your marks drastically. Thank you Galvanize!

Galvanize on its own is a good program. Some of the features I liked most were:

  1. The Vocab Prep App is a user friendly application that actually helps drives results. One of the most effective learning tools that I have experienced so far.
  2. The mock tests are of good quality and very close in difficulty with the actual exam.
  3. The Galvanize GRE prep App helps with learning on-the-go. Again a very smooth experience just as in the case with vocab app.
  4. The Essay type question templates are very good.

Overall, my experience with Galvanize has been productive and fruitful. I was engaged with the whole experience and was able to score good with it’s help (331/340).

Galvanize coaching has a pretty decent online program. They cover all the question types in the Verbal section thoroughly and provide with proper tips and techniques. I used to have a notion that the Verbal section is purely based on vocabulary and not much thinking goes into it. They helped me change that notion and made me attack each question in a logical and iterative manner. Their exercises and tests helped me a lot.

Also, they had a decent amount of practice for the AWA section, in which I was least confident. Their exercises and tests made me improve a lot. And their personalized feedback regarding the AWA part in the third mock test was helpful.

The Mock tests were very useful and were fairly accurate in predicting your actual GRE score. In every mock test, AWA was graded which helped me a lot in understanding where I stand.

The Galvanize preparation was sufficient but in the end, it all comes down to how well you understood the concepts you’re learning.

The support Galvanize’s admissions counselling provided me was comprehensive. They explained to me what it would take for me to get admits to the universities I desired. The university shortlist was drafted on the basis of my overall profile- scores, academic profile, resume, even potential recommenders!- and my inputs as well. The highlight of the counselling process was the help they provided me with my SOP. Writing a strong SOP is absolutely essential if you’re looking to get an admit to a good university. The help they gave me with constructing exactly the kind of SOP I was looking for went a long way towards getting me my admit, I’m sure.

My admissions counsellor was crucial to the entire process- she briefed me on everything I needed to know about the application process. If I had to summarize my entire experience with Galvanize Test Prep, I would say it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life.

The application process to foreign universities is daunting in terms of the quantity of documents required. Galvanize admission counselling helped streamline the entire process.
The team clearly laid down the plan for the months leading up to my university deadlines.
The universities were shortlisted based on several factors including an initial review conducted at the beginning of the counselling process. The list was extensive and well researched which helped me filter out universities based on my interests.
The drafting process for my SOP and LOR was exhausting and extremely time consuming. The admissions counselor at Galvanize helped me at every step with fast and reliable reviews on my SOP and diversity essays.
They also kept me motivated all this time with weekly reminders.
Ultimately, I would definitely say Galvanize AC helped me in achieving an exciting admit. Galvanize AC was definitely a crucial piece of my journey in applying for a Master’s abroad.

I strongly recommend Galvanize admissions counselling!  It exceeded my expectations- especially when it came to my SoP & LORs. The university shortlisting process went very smoothly. The entire process, I would say was very interactive- That was what I liked most about my experience.

That, and the level of personalization and care they provide at each stage of the application process. Given that I received admits to several of my target universities, I have to say, enrolling with Galvanize was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

I received admits from five universities and have decided upon University of Southern California. I also received a 15% scholarship from Case Western Reserve University. Galvanize played a pivotal role in the process right from the beginning where I was taught by highly qualified teachers who had been abroad and thus had a greater impact because they had also experienced the same process.

Coming to the counselling services, the application journey was a smooth one under the guidance of the Galvanize team- especially Ms. Biruda. They scheduled timely telephonic conversations and told me about the actual process and how I would have to give my very best. The university shortlisting was done in a seamless manner wherein the colleges I wanted to apply to were taken into consideration and assessed. Furthermore, additional recommendations were made by Biruda and the team. The universities shortlisted were perfect for me.

The counselling team helped me draft a well thought SOP and ensured my final SOP had exactly the sort of information the universities were looking for. One important highlight of this whole process was that I received a timetable which mentioned the deadlines by which I needed the SOPs and LORs drafted. This helped me keep a timely check and also kept me on track so I wouldn’t miss my deadlines. Galvanize indeed helped me get an admit from my dream university and I would like to thank the whole team for making it possible!

University shortlisting was made so much easier with Galvanize’s help. The first thing they did was understand my preferences, ask for my inputs and then they scrutinized my profile to determine which universities would be good options for me.

With regards to my SOP, they took the time to understand what I was trying to convey through my SOP and they provided me with extremely valuable feedback. This feedback was really helpful to me and if it weren’t for my personal course managers and my admissions counsellor, I doubt my SOP would’ve turned out the way it did ultimately. My admissions counsellor broke down all of the intricate details relating to the admissions process- they motivated me when I most needed it. I would definitely recommend Galvanize’s Admissions Counselling service to anybody looking for a hassle-free experience!

Right from the shortlisting of universities, to the submission of University applications and the preparation of SOP’s, LORs & Resume – they helped me at every step and replied to my every query ( however silly it might have seemed! ). I sent in my application to 5 universities and got admitted into 4 of them with two of them even providing me with scholarships! So, they did indeed choose the best ones for me.

About SOP’s, LOR, I didn’t really know how to go about writing these essays. That’s where the counselling team made it easy. The team helped me give my essays the required edge and polish. The Galvanize Team, totally, helped me get an admit to my target University – Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. And to get a scholarship, was the cherry on top. I wouldn’t go anywhere else but here if I had to do this all over again. Thank you to the whole team of Galvanize Admission Counselling.

I was not confident in my ability to draft all the documents like SoP and LORs well enough to receive admits from universities. I believed in Galvanize’s material and guidance and so I enrolled with their admission counselling services.

When it came to shortlisting universities – The team tried to understand all the factors that mattered to me while shortlisting and did provide me a list of 12 universities (apart from 6 universities of my choice). Even after, they helped me further shorten this list to 6 universities which would’ve consumed a huge amount of time if I had to do it for myself.

The support provided by the team with my SoP and LORs was the best of the entire admission counseling experience. The responses were really very quick and even my doubts were resolved within hours. The quality of suggestions provided by the team after every iteration of my SOP, LOR drafts were really helpful.

I am completely satisfied with my decision to enrol with Galvanize for both my GRE prep as well as my admission counselling and would gladly recommend it to anybody looking for assistance!

University selection based on your profile is a tedious task and requires proper guidance. I also wanted someone I could rely on for SOP and LOR reviews. That is why I enrolled with Galvanize.
I’m glad I did because Galvanize made the admission process easier, providing me with all the required resources.

Though many resources are available over the internet, being a working professional, I did not have enough time to search for the resources myself and then work on the process. I felt very at ease knowing that I could rely on Galvanize to address my queries and help me out with the admission process.

What impressed me most about Galvanize were the timely response for each and and every query during the admissions process. I would say to anybody who is busy and has no proper idea about the admissions process to definitely enroll with Galvanize Admissions.

Applying to universities is a risky and expensive process, so I was sure guidance was needed. I enrolled with Galvanize admissions counselling, which turned out to be a great decision.

Before Galvanize, I was confused about which universities would be best for me to apply to.  Galvanize evaluated my profile, enquired about all other factors like my preferred location, cost, and courses before giving me a final list of universities, which were suitable to my needs. My biggest fear was the SOP but Galvanize helped me personalize SOP’s for all of the universities I applied to.

What I liked most about Galvanize was the timely schedule for all the tasks in the application process. I will surely recommend Galvanize to my friends for its excellent team editing team, university selection and ensuring that the entire process moved in a timely manner. Thank you Galvanize for providing the best counselling!

Writing your Statement Of Purpose and getting Letter’s Of Recommendation is a tedious task and I needed help with it. I chose Galvanize on the recommendation of my friends. The universities which were shortlisted for me were very well thought of based on my overall academic profile. They were categorised under Ambitious, Practical and Safe based on the chances of my getting admitted into them. The documentation process was very easy to follow and Galvanize was always ready to help whenever I needed it. In order to secure admissions, your SOP, Resume and LOR’s need to be impactful and up to the point. Galvanize editors help with all of them and it’s really helpful.

The Galvanize Admission Counsellors were very professional and helpful. The webinars and live Video Conferences from counsellors gave me all the basic information I needed. They make sure they answer all your queries! Counsellors are very professional and helpful. The website UI is also well designed. College websites links, application deadlines are all mentioned on the front page which make things easier to follow and navigate through.

I’m really happy that I chose to enroll for the Admission Counselling. I managed to secure admits from multiple universities from the US!

I chose Galvanize Test Prep for Admissions Counseling because I had already enrolled in the GRE preparation course before and the Admissions Counselling seemed like it could help me enter in the Universities I wanted.

I already knew three Universities I wanted to apply to so it was the documentation process that was most helpful to me. In terms of Personal Statements, I think the counselor really helped me. I would have been very lost writing one of those letters completely on my own. Especially since I am very busy working on my final year dissertation.

Galvanize was a bit expensive but really helpful overall! 

My advice to everyone considering studying abroad is to focus on your GRE test score and the other important thing is to have as much extracurricular experience as possible.

The Admissions Counselling offered by Galvanize is awesome. Right from my GRE preparation to the shortlisting of universities to drafting my Statement of Purpose (SoP) and Letters of Recommendation (LoR), Galvanize helped me a lot.

The universities shortlisted for me were perfect. The shortlist was prepared based on my profile and they sorted the universities into 3 categories: ambitious, practical and safe which made it easier for me to decide what to apply to and what not to.

In order to secure admissions, your SoP, Resume and LoR’s need to be impact-ful and up to the mark. Galvanize made drafting an SoP and the LORs an easy process. The final draft of my SoP and LoR’s gave me a satisfactory feeling and I think, helped me secure admits

The entire Galvanize AC team was very helpful during each phase of the application process. I was assigned to Raguvir Krishna (Service Manager) and he was very patient, dedicated and provided me with valuable insights during the time. 

I can honestly say Galvanize has been really good to me!

I personally used Galvanize’s 45 crash courses as I only had 2 months to study before taking the exam. For my Verbal prep, I relied on Galvanize and the Official Verbal Reasoning Practice Qs from ETS. The Galvanize vocab app is fantastic. It provides pictures that help your retention. The program has several timed sections and mock tests. Unlike the Powerprep and Manhattan mock tests, they include an additional Quant/Verbal section in order to mimic the experimental section seen on the GRE. In the last couple of weeks, I took as many mock tests as possible. Galvanize also provides feedback after you complete each test so you can note your weaknesses. They even score your AWA in each mock test! Good luck to everyone taking the GRE!

In just a month with Galvanize Test Prep, I’ve been able to identify my weaknesses and where I need to improve. Also, it is exciting and challenging, giving you ample opportunity to grow under guidance and discussion.

Farnaz,Teheran, Iran

I always thought that I most fully study to take a mock GRE Test but with Galvanize, I had to take the mock test at the time that experts suggested and I am really happy that I realized my weak points. otherwise with just studying, I would not saw my mistakes.

I’ve forget almost all the basics and i’m pretty much enjoyed how the lessons are delivered and they are easy to understand

Galvanize best suits for people like me who starts preparing for GRE from scratch and have very tight schedule. The daily tasks keep one motivated to a goal

Farha Diba, Bangladesh

I really like the way of teaching of Galvanize especially the verbal reading comprehension part

Janhavi Pawaskar, USA

I most like the study plan, the way concepts are tested and the fact that we’re given an estimated score so that we know where we stand at any given point

Hany Ibrahim, Dubai

Excellent, easy-to-understand explanations for each question! Really makes learning that much quicker.

Federico Orrego, UK

The whatsapp group is a great idea, although at times it felt like I was speaking in a different language, as I had to explain simple questions up to 5 times or repeat the date of my GRE exam up to 9 times.

Till now its helping me out quite well

Enuma Anyanwu, Nigeria

I just started using galvanize but, so far its been a really good journey, the videos are very explanatory and easy to understand.

GRE Score- 319

Once I made up my mind to take the GRE test, I searched many applications via Google Play and App Store to improve my skills. Then, I found your application and I liked it. But, I found myself constantly slacking off so when a GRE counsellor from Galvanize contacted me and recommended a plan, I found having a dedicated study plan would help me greatly.

I was initially weak in the Verbal Section, but I found the Verbal content provided in the pack to be very useful. It provided me with strategies to answer the questions. The content taught how to tackle each type of GRE question and also provided me with time management techniques which were very useful.

The personalized feedback I received after every mock test helped me identify my weaknesses and focus my attention there. Moreover, the mock tests helped me get familiar with the feel of the real test.

I also enjoyed learning words using Galvanize’s app! AWA was another part that I was very worried about but Galvanize’s content helped me improve my skills. The examples of each essay helped me a lot and it gave me an idea on how to write the essays.

Dania Javaid, Islamabad, Pakistan

With organized lectures that help you understand everything from the basics of concepts, Galvanize Test Prep provides more than just online lessons. The personalized attention I got from the mentors, their moral support, and their timely responses for my queries showed they were really concerned about my progress.

Onyeagba Kosisochukwu, Nigeria

The study plan may seem a little scary at first, but you can trust Galvanize to get you on the right track.

Hi, this is  Rahil Shajahan from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. I did my graduation in Engineering Physics. I am glad to share that I got admit from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology majoring in  Optics and Photonics.

I needed help writing and structuring my SOP. I also couldn’t narrow down the universities I wanted to apply to, with which Galvanize was a great help

The university shortlisting process went on smoothly. Since I got admitted to all the universities I applied to. The first iteration itself was amazing. The questions asked were pitch-perfect. I would say the SOP creation was the highlight of my Galvanize experience. Mrs. Divya admissions head at Galvanize Test Prep was of great help to me. She was straightforward with the questions I asked and I wasn’t left confused with bogus answers. The experience, on the whole, was good.

Dream big. Don’t be scared to apply to higher-ranked universities.

I had opted for GRE coaching services with Galvanize first and then opted for their admission counselling services as well. My experience at Galvanize with respect to GRE was wonderful

The prep resources helped me quite a lot, especially for the verbal component of the examination. The essays and the questions were quite tough and this helped me prepare very well. The analytical writing material and questions were quite informative and useful as well. 

The material and questions for Quants were challenging, instructive and thorough as well. I actually enjoyed answering the Quants questions, since I really like Math!I’d also downloaded the Galvanize vocabulary app to improve my vocabulary, the latter of which is very important while attending the Verbal section of GRE. I had five mock tests available, and I received personalized feedback for all of them, which was really helpful. I really enjoyed my experience with Galvanize, with respect to GRE prep, in terms of the user interface, feedback, resources, material and so on. Everything was well thought-out and smooth.

I am very happy about my journey with Galvanize. I enjoyed my GRE preparation with Galvanise’s applications, modules and tasks which were customized according to my target. The Galvanize support is awesome too. The course fee is also reasonable and convenient to opt for such online courses. I came to know about Galvanize through the Mobile app referred by a friend of mine. And then a person from Galvanise contacted me.

Galvanize really helped me in the shortlisting and also included my preferences for the same. The iteration process was very professional. I was particularly impressed with the preparation involved in the SOP Process. The support was very good from counsellors . I received regular and prompt responses. On whole  it was a very good experience on my part. The GRE preparation module was particularly well designed and one could practice the problems and sums very well according to the module at home. It was as good as face-to-face coaching! Please try to complete the given tasks in the module on time to get the maximum benefit from your preparation. Galvanize syllabus is prepared very well and customized according to one’s unique needs and targets.

I chose Galvanize for GRE, TOEFL preparation and for the Admission Counselling. Initially, I was checking for better GRE prep courses. I tried Magoosh and Princeton GRE prep courses, but couldn’t score well in the 1st attempt of GRE. While checking out some GRE vocabulary courses, I found Galvanize. The prep course is affordable and the video explanations and the practice questions were very near to the exam level. The feedback for the AWA helped me score a 5 out of 6. Both  the GRE and TOEFL courses were very helpful and enabled me to score good marks. I chose Galvanize for Admissions Counselling as well, where they helped me prepare SOPs, LORs, my resume, and shortlisted my prospective Universities. They also helped me prepare for the US Visa interview.

I had given my academic details and GRE/TOEFL scores to Galvanize. They provided me with a list of 12 universities ranging from dream universities to safe ones. I had given my curated list as well and they reviewed the same and provided me with feedback as to whether my list of universities was feasible based on my academic details. This helped me refine my list and apply for universities. I applied to 10 universities, and ended up getting admits from 8 universities! 

I was provided with a questionnaire and I gave my answers with a lot of elaboration. They provided me with an initial draft based on my answers. Then, I gave my inputs and suggested some changes. They reviewed my changes and helped me in framing statements which would be more formal and well-structured. I didn’t have much time to apply, but they have helped me finish up my SOPs and LORs very quickly, which was immensely helpful.

Counselors responded to my questions everytime and gave me insightful guidelines during the application process. They reviewed my applications before I submitted them. Also, they helped me out with the VISA process. (Thanks to Raghu sir!) He helped me overcome my fear of facing the interview and gave so many tips which enabled me to answer the questions clearly and briefly. We did a good number of mock sessions which also helped me to lose my fear. All the guidance and suggestions provided by Galvanise  helped me to get the VISA.

I was given proper guidance and this helped me complete the process before the VISA interview. They helped me in every situation and clarified my doubts at any point of time. My experience with Galvanise has been really great!

Galvanize is the one-stop solution for GRE, TOEFL and Admission counselling, and they are better than many of the institutes. They provide very good GRE and TOEFL prep courses and the practice tests are very good. The feedback after the tests helped me to understand my weak points as well, which was crucial. 


I would suggest everyone to choose Galvanize if you are planning for masters. 🙂
They are very happy that I am getting into my dream university and have supported me throughout.

Neelmani Garg, India

Admit from  SUNY Buffalo, New York

My Name is Neelmani Garg. I plan to pursue my masters in Industrial Engineering and I have also received an admit from SUNY Buffalo University at New York. I am sharing my experience with Galvanize Test prep, which was instrumental in helping me procure the aforementioned admit.

I got to know about Galvanize from a friend. Later, I spoke to one of the counselors at Galvanize Test prep and enrolled for their admissions service.

The shortlisting process went well. My counselor’s name was Padma and she was quite genuine. After carefully considering my major and budget, she shortlisted prospective  universities for me.

I filled out the forms for the SOP and LOR and got the drafts. It took a lot of time to receive those drafts, but they were extremely helpful. The kind of support that I received from the Admissions counsellors was excellent. 

I also took the GRE preparation platform. The math portion in Galvanise’s platform is quite good.

One tip I would like to give to the aspirants is that it requires a lot of practice before attempting to take the GRE. So, one must practice thoroughly and review their mistakes as well. 

My parents feel great about my journey. They understand that it will help in my career growth immensely.

Mayank Jha, India

I enrolled with Galvanize to improve upon my GRE score. 

I took the GRE preparation service offered by Galvanise, which helped me boost my GRE Score and secure excellent admits. 

The mentors are really knowledgeable and they know the nature of the exam really well. They guided me according to my weaknesses and helped me  improve. The syllabus and the questions involved in the mocks were more difficult than the actual GRE questions, which eventually honed my skill in solving difficult problems in a time-constrained environment.

To all fellow aspirants I urge you to get done with GRE and TOEFL as early as possible so that you will get enough time to craft a winning SOP and procure your LORs. 

I still remember when I was really struggling with Verbal during my GRE Preparation. I was confused, and filled with doubts, but got them clarified promptly by mentors from Galvanise. Infact, my mentors used to arrange calls with GRE Verbal experts who gave me personalized guidance and tips to attempt the GRE verbal section. Eventually all of these practices and efforts helped me achieve my desired score. 

My family is extremely happy because I got into one of my dream universities!

Trishala, India

College: CMR Institute of Technology 
Admits from UC Berkeley, Georgia Tech, NYU, Northwestern University, Drexel University, University of Maryland Global Campus

I was not aware of the process of applying to a university abroad. Since I was working, it was taking up too much of my time to search for and shortlist universities. I had spent a month and shortlisted only 2 universities before I enrolled with Galvanize.

Overall it was not the best of lists but I had a call with Aarthi where I explained my major and also that I wanted to pursue the MS program online. Then, I received a list of 12 universities which had a mix of different majors- Computer Science, CyberSecurity, Cyber Technology. All these courses were in-person rather than online programs. Then I spoke to Aarthi again and she prepared a new list of around 8 universities with online programs but it didn’t have any of the universities I had personally shortlisted so I asked Aarthi to add UC Berkeley and Georgia Tech to the list as well. After that I did my research and shortlisted my choice of 6 universities.

I liked the overall process of drafting my SOP. The questions asked demanded complete details of college and work. Even after finalizing my SOP it went through another round. Then the SOP was fine tuned and looked excellent after that. 

There was a lot of support provided when I had any questions. If Aarthi didn’t know something, she would find out and tell me, which was helpful. Overall, I would say it could have been better but this was good enough. 

I liked it a lot. I was totally new to studying abroad and the details involved in the process. I asked my friends who are studying there but nobody was able to give me answers to all the questions I had, but Galvanize did. I didn’t know how an SOP should be and they helped me prepare an amazing SOP describing myself. They also helped me make my resume, including everything about myself in 3 pages in a very professional way.

Overall Experience was good. GRE and TOEFL preparation was great. Quants tests and questions were very helpful. I had already prepared one round of Quant before enrolling into Galvanize. Galvanize provided me with the edge needed for the exam which helped me get a 160. 

In the mock tests, AWA is also there but it is never reviewed by anyone. Even the Verbal topic wise tests are never reviewed. The Resume and SOP process was the best part of the whole process. The University shortlisting was not up to my expectations. I requested to check into universities from US and Canada in the google form sent but the admission counsellor insisted on selecting one country. My major was selected, mode of study was selected and plus I also had work experience. I figured it would be really easy for her to shortlist some top universities for me. A lot of time was wasted on that which could have been saved. 

Anyways, my end outcome was really good since I got into all the 6 universities I applied to. I got rejected for cybersecurity for 1 university but was offered MS Computer Science instead. 

I am happy that my resume and SOP were prepared in a way that helped me get admits into all universities I chose.

I would say that instead of concentrating 50-50 on both Quant and Verbal, pick one which you are better at and make sure you are prepared to get 170. Then even if you get 150+ or 155+ in the other, the overall combined score will be 320+ and is really good to get you into your choice of colleges. For shortlisting do your own research as well, do not rely completely on the shortlisting process as your resume might have something greater which might help you get into a better college. 

Galvanize will help you curate the perfect resume and SOP which will describe you in the best way possible. 

Madhurima Chatterjee, India

Admit from : Northeastern University
Graduation :  Amrita University

Hello this is Madhurima Chatterjee, Since I used to work full-time, I barely had time to prepare for my GRE exams, let alone do my research on universities I would like to apply to.
I was left with about 3 months before my GRE exam and had not been studying quite seriously until then. It was when I was looking for mobile apps to help me with my quants and verbal that I stumbled upon the free Galvanize App. Soon after registering myself on that app, I received a call from someone at Galvanize asking me about my future plans and so on. Upon a good long discussion with them, I decided to move ahead with the Galvanize test prep service.

There was a very long and detailed questionnaire provided to us on Google Forms which took into consideration almost everything that should matter when considering universities. I remember taking 40-45 mins to finally finish it. The process was quite long, however I did not let my laziness get the best of me and answered each question with due diligence. 

After about 7-10 days, I received an update from the Team and was quite satisfied with my university list as it had most of the universities that I actually wanted to apply for.

The efforts that the writing team had put into each of my applications to handcraft them differently according to the university and its specialization was not something I would have had the skills or the motivation to do on my own. Due to their vast experience and insight from working with previous applicants, they have a very clear idea of what the universities are looking out for in particular.

The counselling team was very patient in dealing with my queries and had adequate knowledge on the required domains to provide me with support and advice. 

I had a great experience in working with the entire team and I am glad that I went ahead with Galvanize for my admissions process. It was one of the smartest and most economic decisions I ever made!

The GRE test prep provided was very useful, the UI for the same is super intuitive and the periodic mock tests really keep you on your toes. The intensity of the mocks is at par with the GRE exam level.

 Have trust in the process. Provide your information to Galvanise, be open and honest. Definitely  practice a lot. : )

Aadarsh Kumar, India

My Name is Aadarsh. I completed my Undergraduate Degree in Computer Science in 2019  from Raja Ram University in Maharashtra.

When my VISA got rejected for the first time, I felt like I could do better with some professional help. I googled a bunch of consultancy services, and subsequently received an email from Galvanize Test Prep. 

I enrolled for their Admissions Counselling Services, and was assigned a counsellor whose name was Raghu. Raghu helped me organise my existing documents in a much more effective way. He was extremely supportive throughout the entire process, right from embellishing my documents to conducting my VISA mock interviews. I felt like he was with me through every step of the way, and that was the best thing I liked about Galvanize’s Counselling.

Raghu even shared his real experiences with me, and provided me with constant support and feedback on a timely basis. His experiences definitely motivated me a lot!

I chose Galvanize because of their budget-friendly prices, and I do not regret my decision. Their customized plan for me was exactly what I needed. 

Given the fact that I did not get my VISA the first time around, I will say this – Please take your VISA Interview very seriously. It isn’t going to be a walk in the park without adequate preparation and rest. Enroll yourself for Counselling Services if need be, as it will help smoothen the entire process and provide you with a lot more confidence. Also, don’t restrict yourself to just one university. Keep a few backups, and apply diligently. 

Finally, I would like to thank Galvanize for their wonderful support and guidance. I couldn’t have done it without them!

Utsav Patel, India

My overall experience with Galvanize was great. They provided me with insight and support in all aspects of my applications, which included profile evaluation, university selection, drafting SOPs for 6 different universities, arranging finances, and conducting the valuable mock VISA interview. It certainly catalyzed my study abroad journey! 

The support system was very good. We were added to a WhatsApp group, where we could pose our doubts and questions. If there were a lot of questions to be asked, I would contact the counselors directly, and get them resolved. 

I do not have any cons to share. My preparation for the GRE and TOEFL was really good, and I achieved the scores I aimed for. 

Veeral Jain, India

In my opinion, my interactions with my counselor Mr. Raghu was the highlight of my higher studies preparation. Mr. Raghu was and continues to be extremely helpful, polite and professional in his interactions with me. He was really very patient and understanding regarding the slightest of my doubts especially during university shortlisting and VISA preparation. Mr.Raghu is someone who I could rely upon to tackle the toughest of situations during the master’s application process.

The overall experience I had with galvanize was extremely professional and enriching

Branch: Civil Engineering

City: Kottyam, Kerala

Received Admits from : University of Liverpool, Brunel University, Coventry University, Keele University

Accepted Admit : University of Liverpool 

Major: Sustainable Civil and Structural engineering


I found from the reviews that students had a wide variety of options to choose their admits from. Unlike regular agencies that have tie-ups with only certain universities and no room for much choice, I found that Galvanize allows us to choose from a wide variety of options depending on our financial ability and academic merit. So, I felt that if I chose Galvanize, I could get an admit at a university with excellent rankings and teaching facilities.

The academic staff and those on the whatsapp group were very helpful as they pushed me to put more effort into the exam.

Accepted Admit : Rochester Institute of Technology

Major: Data Science

My admission counselor was Raghuvir sir and he was really supportive from the very beginning. He was probably one of my best mentors and we used to talk for 1-1.5 hrs straight, not just about the admissions and academics, but also about some other interesting things. 

On the whole How was your experience with Galvanize admission counseling service?

I have been recommending Galvanize to all of my friends who’re interested in a master’s degree abroad. I really liked the experience and it felt like a cake walk all  because of my admission counselor.

 What made you enroll with Galvanize for your GRE/ Admissions?

I realised I needed help with the formulation, editing and enhancement of my essays for university applications. After reading a bunch of reviews, I decided to enroll with Galvanize.

Can you tell us how the shortlisting of the university process went?

My counselor, who was extremely supportive throughout the entire process, took the time to understand my needs and priorities. She then came up with a list of universities according to my interests, took note of my suggestions and we finalized a set of safe, ambitious and practical universities. 


Aashrita Roy Potla, India

Received Admits from : Hochschule Bremen, Hochschule Anhalt, Deggendorf institute of technology.

I would say this is the most wonderful part in the whole process. They have given me the very best in very little time, and I am so thankful to all the editors who worked on my SOPs and LORs.

Overall, This is an excellent place to start your journey of pursuing masters. However, one must not rely completely on the service but also do some self research for best results.

Marcy MHA,Paris

Product Enrolled: GRE Crash Course-45

GRE Score : 316 

I am very grateful to the entire Galvanize team for their assistance during my preparation for the GRE. I was drawn to their site while looking for applications that would allow me to improve my vocabulary and practice exercises from my smartphone. Subsequently, I received emails offering access to free webinars in Quant and Verbal. A bit skeptical at first, I was quickly won over by the quality of the teaching during these sessions. I was learning a lot of tips to improve my performance. At the end of the free sessions and considering the little time I had to prepare for my GRE (2 months), I took the plunge and subscribed to the Crash Course.

In 45 days, I was able to brush up on a lot of math and linguistic concepts that I hadn’t seen since my high school days (almost 20 years ago). I especially appreciated the videos, the application exercises and the sample exams that helped me to evaluate myself in real conditions. All of this allowed me to get a decent score, which could have been higher if I had had more preparation time.

Thanks again to Galvanize! I wish many other candidates to benefit from their precious help.

ANAMIKA JATI, Northeastern University, Boston


Received Admits from : NEU, MS PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Galvanize has been a super experience for me. I don’t think I could have asked for anything else or anything better in terms of the quality of SOPs, resumes and LORs they made for me. They were available at all points in time to help me. As soon as I used to send my input, I received their comments and feedback within a few hours which made the process very smooth and time-saving as well! I must say, they are truly professionals!

How was the VISA assistance process?

I would like to highlight my admissions consultant Raghuvir sir here. I think I am extremely lucky that I got the opportunity to work with him and be his student. I still remember and would never forget this anecdote: the day before my visa interview, I was getting a little nervous and jittery and Raghuvir sir went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and confident with my answers. My case was a little tricky as it was my second masters, etc and I was expecting many tricky questions to be coming my way and Raghuvir sir literally prepared me for every tricky question possible. And the next day, my visa interview was a cake walk as I was prepared for every situation possible. I don’t think I would have been able to crack my VISA interview without Raghuvir sir’s help. Tons of thanks to the incredible Galvanize team for helping us achieve our dreams


Ahmed, Hyderabad

Name: Ahmed, Hyderabad

Received Admits from: UTA, UNT, UMassD, UHCL,NJIT

Major: Computer Science

THE BEST! Correction: admission counselor, not admission counselors. My admissions counsellor, Ragu, has been helping me out for almost a year as I originally planned for Fall 2021 intake but later changed to Spring 2022. He was there to clarify my doubts and address all my queries. Didn’t matter if it was a week-off or any festival, Ragu would make sure my queries were addressed properly. He was more like a big brother than some typical admissions counsellor. I’ve worked with 5-6 admissions counselors (outside Galvanize) for the past year and I can confidently say that Ragu is more competent, more understanding and friendly than any of them. He is a gem.

Yash Amitabh, Patna

Received Admits from : University of Houston, University of Colorado Denver, California

Major: Masters in Business Analytics and Intelligence

My admission counselor in particular was brilliant. He did more for me than I or anyone could imagine and was always 24 hours round the clock available for any query I had.

My visa assistance process was outstanding. I already knew all the questions they could ask me and the answers to it. My paperwork was also on point, thanks to my counselor.

Varsha.R , Bangalore

Received Admits from : UT Dallas, University of Houston college station,Texas tech , Illinois Institute of technology.

MS in Computer and system engineering (ECE)

The support from the Galvanize Admission Counselors was amazing. They are well organised and they always kept track of my progress and told me the tasks to be done.

I had their  support in everything and they were very informative and resolved all my queries.

The inputs for LOR’s were easy to give because I had to just fill in  the document that they provided,which had all the necessary questions that had to be filled in ,through which they generate a LOR.I liked the idea because it makes one’s task easier and it is less time consuming.I was happy with the way the editors worked on it. I was handed over the final, precise LOR. 

Coming to Resumé, the editors are very much aware about the format ,and I just had to give the inputs and my Resume was shaped accordingly.

 Unlike other consultancies, Galvanize work on your SOP,LOR’S personally,which is great. Though it is an online consultancy, you’ll never feel that you are off the track or lost because the team is always there to eye on your progress.I would definitely recommend Galvanize over other consultancies .

Naga Prasath, Calicut | Galvanize Student Testimonial

My name is Naga Prasath and I Graduated from from NIT Calicut. I received admits from UT Dallas, Illinois Tech, University of Cincinnati, Florida State University. But I choose Illinois Tech for my MS in Information Technology and Management

Shortlisting the Universities is no doubt a difficult step and it required a lot of discussions and opinions. However once I was done with selecting universities ,I moved to the next step that was drafting my SOP’s. This was again a big task as I also needed University specific SOP. Thanks to the team for making it a smooth process by guiding at each step. With respect to LOR’s, the  documents were reviewed multiple times before they were finalized. 

It is a very helpful service for students with limited knowledge on the Admission process. The support was great and I got my queries answered. Not to forget I also got assistance for my VISA where I was provided with a mock interview by my counselor.

Rithika, Banglore | Galvanize Student Testimonial

This is Rithika from Bengaluru. I graduated from Acharya Institute of Technology in Information Science and Engineering(ISE). I wanted to pursue my masters abroad. While looking for assistance I came across Galvanize through one of my friend. My journey with Galvanize was good. I would recommend Galvanize to all those who are looking for assistance because the SOP Process was really amazing as the team helped me accordingly at the right time. Also my counselor helped me for my VISA process.

Kokapranitha Harani | Galvanize Student Testimonial

Hello this is Pranitha from Hyderabad. I graduated from MVSR College in ECE. Now I will be doing my masters in Computer engineering from SJSU. I have received admission forms sjsu, asu, gmu, uh.

I initially came to know about Galvanize through their Youtube channel. And then after I checked their reviews which were impressive I enrolled with them for my admissions process. The shortlisting of universities was little tough because I had all expensive universities in my mind later with the help of counselor i applied to universities with Practical , ambitious and safe format. Post which the SOP and LOR process was great as it was quick ,simple and as per my feedback and conversation with the editor. I must say that the counselor is good as she guided me throughout the process and helped me whenever there was a rough patch.

The best part of my journey was the VISA as my counselor helped me a lot. Overall  the experience was Helpful and friendly and I would truly recommend Galvanize for your admissions process.

Madhuli suvarnakar

Initially when I was looking for assistance for my GRE prep I got a call from one of the counselors from Galvanize. After understanding the whole course and how it will help me I chose Galvanize for my test prep as well as admissions journey. Also, everything was online and made it easier for me to work on my applications while sitting at home. Right from the university shortlisting to the Visa and US cards. So we started with shortlisting universities which went quite smoothly, The counselor assigned to me shortlisted universities for me as per my requirements.
Talking about SOP, This was so helpful for a person like me. I was doing a job and handling these documents on my own would have been quite tiring. But thanks to galvanize, with my given inputs they framed a nice SOP for me. For my LOR I had given three google forms and after filling those simple forms the galvanize team started drafting my LOR. The framing of all my inputs in a nice essay was done by galvanize. For sure this task was not my cup of tea!
My Counselor Aarthi Rajesh was so helpful. She was so patient with me all the time. Always helped me with my queries. She always scheduled the google meets with me, to help me with the overall application process. I had already recommended Galvanize to two of my friends. One of them is still in the process and the other girl got her visa and is admitted to a desired university. I told them about the online service galvanize offered, the iterative approach to the documents. Also I had told them about exam preparation help provided by galvanize. I am so satisfied with the services galvanize provided. Made this journey a lot easier than I thought.

I am really happy with the university selecting process as my counselor gave me a great list of universities and was always there for me when I needed her. She was also very understanding and helpful. Even with the SOP part was good. The editor was very supportive and understanding of my needs.

Later we started with the VISA process. My counselor explained the process and gave me all the useful links. She was quick to assist me whenever I faced any issue. It was a wonderful experience.
