Why Hire Guidance Counselor

Gone are the days when one person could do everything. Specialists are required in every sphere of life these days. An expert in college admission is a necessity today.

The definition of ancient has evolved at lightning speed over the past 20 years. Everything that worked like magic few years ago now seems as old as the Indus Valley Civilization. It is largely due to the stranglehold of technology and the inroads it has made into the human space. The same analogy applies to College Admission. Things that worked two years back are obsolete today. One has to rethink the entire strategy for college admission. In order to stay ahead of these changes, an expert in the field is what you need. With each passing year, the number of students turning to independent college counselors has seen a significant rise. This trend is here to stay and is only going to see a sharp upswing in the decades to come.

We are not saying you will not succeed on your own – We are saying you will have guaranteed success with Mnemonic.

Rising Competition

From less than 50 thousand students in 1995 to about 150 thousand students enrolled in the US from India in 2015. As the stakes are really high and thrice the number of students vying for almost the same number of seats in prestigious universities, getting a personal counselor can give a massive impetus your child’s future. Applying independently without a professional counselor is not a chance any parent should take.

We have both the time and the proven track record to get you to the University of your Choice. And we take immense pride in our work’s consistency, and it guarantees success.

Expert and Dedicated Services

The average student load for School Counselors in India is about 500-1000 students. The average High School counselor spends about an hour in a year to discuss the admissions process. An hour to decide one’s future and get admitted into a college of our dream is just not possible. Also, the emphasis on college admission is mainly for Indian colleges and not for the foreign universities. Further, with their non-college responsibilities, they may not be the experts in college admissions.

That’s where a seasoned and dedicated college counselor comes in to fill the gaping holes. An independent college counselor is available around-the-clock and spends unlimited hours with college applicants.

Low College Acceptance Rate

Colleges are getting more selective, and students must have a brilliant profile for admission. Hundreds of the top colleges now receive staggering 40,000-odd undergraduate applications a year. The meager acceptance rate varies between 5% and 15%. The acceptance rate for highly selective colleges is dropping year on year. Even the national acceptance rate in the USA (across all universities) dropped from 65% in 2005 to 42% in 2015.

We, at Mnemonic, have been steadily overcoming these sharp cut-offs and getting our students frequently admitted at Dartmouth, Yale, Cornell, Harvard, et al. Keeping up with new trends, academic changes and evolving campus cultures, we know exactly what it takes to get USA colleges.

"The most appreciable thing was that I got to write all the essays myself & so it was my own thought process which was refined by Mnemonic's fine quality writers. I have heard that some consultants write the whole essay where the individual contribution or ownership of the process becomes very limited. I think the team is very polished, mature, experienced and very helpful at all times. I had a good experience all through."


"All the hard work and effort that the Mnemonic team had put in finally met appreciation and justice. Everyone in Mnemonic is very professional. The features of Applix are very helpful. I did not have to worry about anything regarding my admissions since the day I contacted Mnemonic. Thanks for a wonderful experience."

"I thank Mr. Shirish and the whole team of Mnemonic Education for their guidance and support. Your team has been very professionally dedicated during the entire process. I have got the admission at the most prestigious, HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL. My dream of a lifetime has come true. It has made everyone proud of my achievement. To add cherry on top, I have been awarded scholarship worth $11250. I am now in the elite Business class!"


"As the second youngest Chess Grand Master, my time is mostly spent in travelling for tournaments.
