It was a great journey with
FACT right from the very beginning till the end. The journey was
made memorable by Avinash sir, Kiran mam, Katre madam, Bina
Madam, Navin sir and the Thane Fact team. There were the three
most difficult stages where the FACT team helped me out. The
first stage was of cracking the GRE. Bina madam and Navin Sir
helped me with my GRE exams and the tricks for cracking it.
After my GRE and TOEFL exams came the second most difficult
stage of selecting the university according to research
interest. It Herculean task to select few universities among the
thousand universities in USA. Particularly I was very choosy for
the universities which was offering course relevant to my field
of research interest. But Avinash sir helped in going through
this process made the task very simple and also made me learn
how to know about the current research going on in the
university . That helped me in selecting few of the good
universities and guided me through the process of application
After getting the admits came the third most difficult stage,
that of selecting between the two desired universities. At this
stage of confusion Avinash Sir helped me in deciding for a
university by comparing the university in every aspect. After
finalising the university, then was it was the time of Visa
interview which many students are scared of being rejected. But
I am thankful to Katre madam and Avinash sir for helping me
practice my mock interviews. And finally I would say by their
blessings, I cracked my Visa interview in first attempt.
I would like to thank the whole FACT team for being with the
students who need help and guiding them at every small point and
wish them luck for future.
FACT has been of tremendous
help throughout my admission process ie right from the day I
took admission till the very last day... One thing I would very
much like to mention is the amount of hardwork FACT's entire
team takes in moulding students for their visa interviews...
Mock interview sessions conducted by FACT are hell of confidence
boosters and this is something which other councillors might not
offer you. The Univ which Avinash Sir recommends are the best
ones that suits your profile... Katre mam gives a lot of
confidence and at the same time makes you aware of the reality
as to where you stand... Avinash Sir's frankness helped me
immensely... ofcourse Kiran mam is like an All Rounder of the
FACT team... I would like to thank Sunil Shah Sir for his
guidence through various sessions... My best regards to the
entire FACT team for all their future endeavours..
THANK YOU ENTIRE FACT TEAM
I am a computer science
student and i was enrolled in fact in 2011. I loved fact because
of their way of teaching and helping. All faculty at fact were
very approachable and friendly, so i was able to get help from
them in a really efficient manner. I wished my teachers here
would be like the ones in fact. They helped me make an awesome
SOP and made my VISA application process really smooth and easy.
Fact unlike some other institutions promises to help students
even after they have reached US which give me a real sense of
relief after I reached US. Thank you fact for all your help and
After lot of enquiries
...finally I joined FACT in 2009. I spent my everyday in FACT
classroom studying quant and verbal, discussing the problems
with the teacher and some of my new friends at FACT. It provides
excellent classrooms and place to discuss the problems. Somehow
in 2010 I was not able to get admission in 2010 fall for PhD in
good american Institution. I did not try in 2011. Came back in
2012 and I found out one Scheme of Government of India for
abroad studies. I applied for that scheme taking help from
Avinash Sir. After I got interview call at Delhi Avinash sir
told me the things which were important for the interview and I
got selected in top 10 candidates.
Everything went well this year and finally I landed in US for
PhD in Forest Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology. This
university offers best curriculum and research in my area which
I am passionate for. FACT is a family for me and as Sunil sir
tells everyone once you enrolled in FACT you become a lifetime
member and its a long association of fact and you.
Its a strong resource ...they never settles for what they and
their students have accomplished. Together they help towards
challenges that help assure growing appreciation for the foreign
education. They provide you inspiration to think abroad.
Kiran mam is best administrator and as a person can helpful for.
Katre mam's VISA interview sessions get cross you the important
hurdle in your dream coming true. Avinash sir is an example of
best as an independent advisor/friend can offer. He is friend
more than a counselor, so I never hesitated to talk him in any
It was a great journey along
with FACT. The study and the application procedure don’t seem
difficult now. Prior, after completing my Bachelor’s degree, I
was quite unsure to continue with my master’s in India or to
look for the opportunities outside India. I met Katre madam, who
guided me about opportunities and the necessary steps to be
taken to avail the opportunity. I would like to thank Bina madam
and Navin sir, who helped me in polishing up my Verbal and
After my GRE and TOEFL exams it seemed a Herculean task to
select few universities among the thousand universities in USA.
But Avinash sir helped in going through this process. They gave
me a few universities based on my scores and overall
performance. That helped me in selecting few of the good
universities and guided me through the process of application
Now after my packets were send and my admits had started coming,
we all students were guided by Sunil sir regarding our visa
documentation. Then was it was the time of Visa interview which
many students are scared of being rejected. But I am thankful to
Katre madam and Onkar sir for helping me practice my mock
interviews. And finally I would say by their blessings, I
cracked my Visa interview in first attempt.
Thanks to the whole team of FACT.
Finally, I Thank the whole FACT team for being with us and
helping us at every small point and wish them luck for future.
Dear All FACT TEAM
It has been three years since I am wandering here and there for
going to USA. I was trying every thing to get university with
full funding but all efforts were in vain.Then I came to know
about FACT, where Mr Avinash and Mrs Kiran assured me, I will
get university with 100% financial aid. And their words came
true when I got University as I wished. Advice of FACT was
really priceless and helpful at every stage starting from Making
of SOP, Selection of university, Mails with professor, visa
guidance. Best Part of Mr. Avinash is that the way he eases
tensions of every students, is really awesome. Then availlibilty
of Mr. Avinash, he is just call away from you. Moreover,
guidance of Mrs. Katre madam for Visa counselling was valuable
too.I know that only words cant describe my indebtedness towards
Entire FACT team, but I am really thankful to every one from
It’s not just a good
university database, pool of information, maintenance of the
past records that makes me recommend FACT but the friendly
environment, maintained by the experts encouraging you to ask
your ‘silly’ queries distinguishes it from the others whose
appointment is marked by the formal code of conduct strictures
you to speak out your mind.
Special thanks to Avinash Veer sir for showing such patience
with me during the application process, helping me explore the
university list, and finally help getting landed at University
of Washington, one of the top schools in USA, even after getting
visa rejected in the first attempt. You will hardly find such a
guy with nice creative ideas, great sense of humor, truly
enjoying company of students helping them achieve there goals!!
I have been part of FACT for
last one year. It was a great journey of my life and helped me a
lot to mold my career. And I am really very happy and satisfied
after getting admission in good university. Everybody at FACT
was always helpful to me but they never spoon feed anything to
me. There were lot of up’s and down’s in the whole application
process but every time everyone stood beside me and helped me to
gain my confidence. According to my academics and financial
condition they found me the best possible universities which had
excellent course and research in my field of interest.
Avinash sir helped me a lot in this whole process. He is the
friendliest person in FACT but he is very straight forward when
it is required and will get things done from you in right way.
You will realize at the end that his straight forward attitude
was correct. I thank to Katre Madam, Kiran Madam and Avinash sir
for helping me to achieve my goal . I will always feel proud to
be part of FACT.
I became a part of the FACT
family when I was in 12th. I would be heading to The University
of Toledo for my bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Now when I am about to depart, I ought to thank the FACT team
for all the valued guidance I received from them.
Kiran mam, Avinash sir, Katre mam, Bina mam and Navin sir helped
a lot. I am very thankful for the motivation and the positive
approach imbibed in me by Kiran mam, Bina mam and Katre mam. The
daunting application process seemed easy with a counselor like
Avinash sir. His laconic + jovial approach helped me to be in
Once again, I thank FACT for all the support.
It was a difficult journey
through GRE, TOEFL and finally the visa. I say difficult and not
impossible because people at FACT were there to help me out at
every step. There are many people who ask me which consultancy
is best one. I am not biased towards FACT but I really had such
an experience that whenever someone asks me this question my
answer is always going to be FACT. My visa was rejected for the
first time, I was very depressed and thought that would never
get my visa. The first thing that I did was to go and talk to
Avinash sir and really as always I left his office with my
confidence restored. I went through almost 9-10 mock interviews
before both my interviews. They actually told me where I went
wrong for the first time and they saw to it that I will not
repeat those mistakes again. They checked each and every packet
of mine personally so that all my documents would reach their
respective universities perfectly. I still remember troubling
Kiran mam and Avinash sir till 10 pm because I wanted to
finalize my packets that day itself and they stayed there till I
Avinash sir is more like a friend than an advisor. I would like
to mention one thing here which I learned through hard way, if
you have joined FACT then trust them, they know better about
these universities and this entire process than the guys on the
internet . You can't trust what is written on the internet but
you can definitely trust these people because I did and I am
here today in USA pursuing my dream.
"Angels are always above our
For me these angels were in the form of Kiran Madam, Avinash
sir, Sunil sir and Katre madam. Its because that I have worked
so closely with them I can say that these guys are highly
dedicated in their work and each one of them strives extremely
hard to put every student to the best possible university. It is
this dedication which has helped me pursue my dream like many
others who had joined FACT. I would recommend FACT to everyone
who wants to pursue their American dream.
My experience with FACT has
been very enlightening. I received much more than I bargained
for and I have a lot more understanding of me as a whole. All
the elements of this process were very "happy treats" and really
helped drive and direct the educational side.
I'm going abroad centered, inspired, and feeling more alive than
ever. Thank you for your gifts, your words, heart and true
inspiration. My journey started with a seminar on foreign
education by Sunil shah sir. He kept inspiring me from that
point till now. When it comes to preparation, I was weak in
maths but with great efforts by faculty I was able to fetch good
score. Then pain stalking application process started. It was
not a cakewalk but because of proper guidance of Avinash sir and
Katre madam I completed whole process with ease. They helped
from filling up the forms to choosing apparel for visa
interview. Avinash sir is one of the best buddies I have met in
my life. I learned so many things from him, from eating to
reading. It was great journey so far for me. I hope future
students will have same experience with FACT.
Photo to be uploaded soon
First of all a BIG thank you
to FACT team. When I came to FACT first time I was very confused
not knowing what to do, how to do etc. However step by step,
inch by inch we achieved the objective. We here refer to Avinash
sir, Katre mam, Kiran mam and of course Sunil sir. Being away
from family it was difficult to arrange all documents, at times
literally depressing but FACT faculty was always there to help
me. I remember I was at fact office at 9.00 pm with Katre mam
making sure if my file is proper to be sent ahead. I had a dream
and FACT made sure I get there. I can not express the joy of
achieving the target, thanx a ton to FACT!
Many thanks to the entire team
of FACT for helping me at each and every step, right from the
preparation of SAT and TOEFL upto the VISA counseling. During
the last 18-20 months or so, that is, since I joined FACT, each
day had been a crucial one. I cannot think of a single night
when I didn't imagine myself flying abroad for my studies. The
preparation, the process and the tension was indeed
considerable. But FACT really helped me in getting through each
and every scenario quite easily. The support of Sunil sir, Katre
madam, Kiran madam and Avinash sir is noteworthy.
You really need a strong and sturdy helping hand in the case of
abroad studies; FACT is just the one you would want!
I am Ashwin. I have completed
my 12th standard board examinations and now leaving for my
undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering BS in Indiana
University-Purdue University, Indianapolis. I shall receive my
degree from Purdue University. FACT was able to guide my family
and myself through the entire process, from start to finish.
FACT has also helped me secure a 48000$ scholarship. For this I
am ever grateful to the FACT team.
I had got a poor GRE score of
1190 when i met Avinash Sir. He advised me on giving GRE again
if I had time. I studied for it and got a score of 1490 in my
2nd attempt. The advise with filling application, SOP, Resume
was valuable and the best part was that he was just a ping away
on gtalk to clear any doubts. The hectic application process
seemed easier with his laid back and chilled out attitude. The
VISA guidance from him and Katre man helped me gain confidence
before the interview. My brother had already worked under
Avinash Sir, 3 years back and I was sure that it was worth the
investment. Thank you for the all the guidance.
It has been more than a year I
have been a part of F.A.C.T and I can surely state that it’s a
great satisfaction that I have today. Enrolling at F.A.C.T was a
correct step towards pursuing desired course at reputed
universities abroad. There have situations where I felt I was
not going to make it, but that’s where F.A.C.T shows us way. I
had a very average profile; still I got admit from a good
university with a scholarship that covers 80% of my expenses.
It’s the outcome experienced and proper guidance of the faculty
Throughout the procedure, right since preparing for GRE to Visa,
at every step, guidance by faculty has been valuable. Online
tests are really helpful for preparation. While short listing
universities especially suitable to my financial background and
course, guidance was extraordinary! I feel I could do justice my
profile only because of FACT! F.A.C.T is family and available
whenever and whatever the problem. This is the institute where
they do not spoon-feed students but make them understand the
procedure and motivate them to bring out there best. I thank
whole heartedly to Kiran madam, Katre madam and Avinash Sir are
constantly motivating and I am proud to say I belong to F.A.C.T.
My experience with fact
started with my seniors who joined FACT and their seniors before
them. It is tried and tested and it is successful. Met many down
to earth and friendly people here who know the problems students
face know the solutions as well. Got guidance every step of the
way, right from selecting a college to the VISA interviews
leaving things to chance is not the way FACT works. To get our
goal we try once we try twice may be thrice, but FACT will make
sure you work till you get that goal and wont let you stop half
way through. FACT is in the business of realizing dreams, and
they do it well.
“Flaming enthusiasm, backed up
by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most
frequently makes for success. “
I'd like to acknowledge the help and support of the FACT team,
esp. Avinash Sir, Katre Ma’am and Kiran Ma’am, that I have
experienced in last few months. I was impressed by the efficient
response, constant communication and concern for the student
requirements that the FACT team have been providing to me.
Avinash Sir had all the patience in the world to answer my
queries (a few stupid queries to be precise :D). Katre Ma’am
prepared me for my Visa Interview in just 4 days. From my point
of view, such friendly yet professional approach can only lead
to success and satisfaction. There is no better way to thank
these people than getting your Visa approved..!
I have fussed at times but the end results have been
Once again, I want to thank my mentors from bottom of my heart
for their excellent support and guidance. Your guidance has
served as a template for my successful future.
It’s rightly said that “Actions speak louder than Words”.
Therefore, join in guys and find out yourself..!
Process of applying to US
university is very tedious work, from LOR to SOP to selection of
university according to your course requirement, research a
scholarship opportunities and not to forget all the junk load of
document to be prepared for Visa interview. FACT has made this
entire process quite simple because they know what exactly needs
to be done at every point, there is no point of misdirection.
I'm very thankful to Shraddha mam and Onkar sir for their
relentless support at each step in the process from selecting
universities to application till Visa interview.
I would certainly recommend FACT to all the future aspirants
A big big thank you for
helping me. The support and encouragement you provided helped me
do well in the exams. All the members at Fact are great. They
simply know there job well. Special thanks to Navin sir and
Beena Maam for helping me with the preparations. No matter how
stupid the doubt would be, they always had the time and patience
to solve me. Also I thank Sunil Shah sir, for making FACT an
institute that trains students to excel nd not just teach them
tricks to get through the exams. The excellent ambience and
updated material at FACT Dadar, helped me prepare for the exam
very well. It was because of Hiren Sir and Vaishali Maam(FACT
Nashik) that the entire application process went off very
smoothly. I had 5 admits from the 8 universities. All in
all....it was simply great not only to learn with FACT but also
to be a member of FACT. Thank you very much every one at FACT
for making me a member of your family. It shall be my pleasure
if anytime in future i get an opportunity to be of any use to
FACT in the Future.
Fact has been very helpful
throughout the application process and the Visa guidance as
well. Now, I havent got a chance to interact with all the people
at FACT. But Avinash sir,Katre madam and Kiran madam have been
very supportive and confidence boosters throughout. They wont
just compliment you but will tell upfront if you are doing
something wrong, especially Avinash Sir, his approach is very
straightforward, which makes you realize where you exactly
FACT has served fantastically. I hope they continue to show the
same path to all students.
I am really grateful to FACT for guiding my way for foreign
studies to Louisiana State University for Masters in Computer
Science course. I have always dreamt of studying abroad and it
came true with the help of FACT. I am really thankful to FACT
for it. My special thanks to my Counselors Avinash Veer , Katre
and Kiran Madam for guiding me through all my admission
procedure right from selecting university to landing on the
university campus. It was a very distinctive experience with
FACT. I am very contented with the service and concern they gave
me. I wish them best of luck for their future and for the
service they offer to the students. I wish them to prolong it
for many approaching years.
It was definitely an advantage
joining FACT. I got my documentation complete on time because of
the prompt action taken by Hiren sir and FACT team. Due to this
I was able to get admit in the desired university.
FACT was very helpful from the beginning, may be it was about
selecting my specialization, suggesting me universities
accordingly, helping in preparing SOP and RECOs, checking
packets every time, I remember calling him at least 15 times
daily for silly queries, but FACT was helpful each and every
time. Be it any time of the day, he was always there to solve
any type of difficulty that I faced during the process.
Onkar sir was also of great help with visa process. Visa
practices taken by him and Katre madam gave me a lot of
confidence for the final interview. When I had all the admits,
both of them helped me to choose the best university.
I will recommend FACT to each and every person who seeks my
advice on educational counseling...!!
Thank you F.A.C.T once again for always being there for me.
In my statement of
purpose I wrote, 'My journey to success would start if I get an
admit from your university', but now I realize that my actual
journey began when I took the first step and joined FACT.
Almost a year before i gave my GRE and had no clue as to what
should I do next, but then I got the most needed guidance from
Avinash Sir. He is the one who actually made this happen. So
guys if you want to pursue your Master's just appear for exams
and I assure that Avinash Sir will take care of the rest.
I want to thank the entire team of FACT from Sunil sir to
Shailesh who have helped in this admission process and made it
possible... Cheers FACT!!!!!!! Thanks a lot...
I first went to FACT office
after getting a GRE score that was rather low for my profile. I
had expected a counselor to console me and give me assurances.
But Avinash sir did none of that and refused to even admit me
till I retake GRE and get a respectable score. As scary as it
sounded at that time, it felt totally worth after 3 months while
walking out of the GRE center with an improvement of 220 marks
and a very very respectable score.
What I have observed about counselors at FACT is that they will
do anything they can to get your problems solved. In fact,
sometimes they go out of the way. For example, I remember
Avinash sir solving my doubts on GTalk at 1:30 AM. They do have
well defined procedures, documents and seminars like others, but
in my opinion, what sets them apart is their willingness to
listen to what you have to say and solve all your ad-hoc doubts.
Since most of my interaction happened with Avinash sir, I know
most about him. But I am pretty sure it is true about everyone
who works at FACT. Rather than investing in big offices and
shiny rooms, they have invested in people and all they have is
My journey with FACT began
when, on a friend’s recommendation, I stumbled into the Borivali
office decided to apply to the Fall term of 2012 for my masters
in mechanical engineering. This was my second application
season, my first one for Fall 2011 was a devastating failure.
After trying out various options, I suddenly remembered my
friend’s advice and turned to FACT as a last resort. This was in
Dec 2011. I met Hiren Sir, who asked me about my background and
raised my spirits. Although initially skeptical, I was quite
impressed by their professional attitude and commitment and I
felt I might have come to the right place. And thus it began..
Shraddha mam and the rest of the staff at FACT were extremely
helpful and patient with me, sometimes sitting late into the
evenings helping me with packets and clearing any doubts or
anxiety. Whenever I wanted help, it was just an email or a phone
The results speak for themselves; I got admission into six out
of nine colleges I had applied and four with scholarship upto
90%. After my Fall 2011 season where I secured only two admits
out of ten and only one for MS, I found this drastic change just
Come VISA application time, Onkar sir was always available to
clear any doubts of my VISA process and guided me regarding the
fine intricacies it. The mock interviews he conducted and the
tips he gave for the interview also helped greatly in dissolving
my anxiety and helping me clear the final big hurdle to MS in
US, the VISA interview. We became buddies towards the end of the
This is the account of my wonderful journey with FACT. I cannot
thank Shraddha mam, Hiren Sir, Onkar sir and all the other FACT
staff enough for their fantastic support and genuine concern
towards my application, without which all my results would not
have been possible..
If you trust someone, trust
till the end whatever the results might be, at the end, either
you will have a very good friend or a very good lesson. In my
case I definitely have earned a lifelong friendship.
For me life was and am sure will be an unpredictable journey
only to be much unafraid of now. It’s the time when you feel all
hopes lost and left nowhere, life gives you yet another spark of
hope to rekindle the dying flame. For me such a spark of life
were Mr. Sunil Shah and Mr. Avinash Veer whose help and
incessant support is inexplicable.
FACT and me know it well the entire process for me had never
been a cake walk but words from Sunil Sir and Avinash Sir kept
my spirit going. I recall the days of GRE. The most dreadful
examination of my life or so were it called by most of my
friends then. The examination definitely is not dreadful but for
the experiences others share before you sit on the hot seat for
3 hours. I still remember the day of having met Sunil Sir a few
days before I was to take my second attempt. I had been to his
office bit neurotic, so would I term my condition then. Sunil
Sir shared one of his experiences of Para gliding at Goa. A
novice as one is before his first attempt on a task, unknown to
the rules of paragliding, Sunil Sir was told by his guide to
just trust him and jump and enjoy the experience. His
expressions reflected the delight he had after completing the
Paraglide. He reiterated the same to me with the credence I
cannot pen in words. I cross my heart, 2 minutes before the
examination were to commence, I only had two individuals on mind
– 1st Lord Siddhivinayak and 2nd Sunil Sir and his four Words
‘Trust me - Kood Jaa’ (English- Jump). His words had entered in
me like a bolt. Yes the results of the examination too reflected
delight on my face.
A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of
one’s heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest
of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and
with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. Similar had been
Avinash Sir. Believe and Blindly Trust every word this man says.
May that be regarding your University selection, admission, your
visa interview and your Visa status. You can rest assured once
you get a Green light from him. I cannot thank Avi Sir enough
for his help. I only wonder when he rests.
Every step, every path I took, I had FACT to guide me all the
way through. I thank Katre Mam for the help during my Visa as
also Hiren and Shraddha who had always been there for any and
all the questions I had. Not to forget 24 hours of the day.
Especially Hiren who more than a counselor has been and is a
very dear friend to me.
I see FACT as a ‘Tower of Strength’. Much trustworthy and
powerful than you can imagine at first glance. I owe FACT my
lifetime opportunity of flying to the States and doing my
further studies, without whose help I might not have had it.
Do not trust all men, but trust men of worth; the former course
is silly, the latter a mark of prudence.
LOVE YOU GUYS. XX
I feel fortunate that I have
joined FACT to take guidance to apply for master's studies. And
I have learned a lot from Avinash sir. I appreciate his friendly
approach in guiding me through the whole process. His guidance
helped me not only through this process successfully but also in
developing my reading habits and other extra curricular
activities. I must say that by joining FACT I have got a friend
Its my pleasure to write about
FACT academy. I have shared a long but eventful journey with
FACT. When i had joined FACT i was this naive girl who wanted to
study abroad but didnt know the way. I was scared and worried as
to how will i be able to pull this whole process that too in a
short span of time. I was worried about the exams, the
application process, the admits, accomodation, on-campus jobs,
finance, course work etc and most importantly VISAAAAAA...........
That took the hell out of me, but with FACT every step seemed
achievable and possible. I have fulfilled my dream finally.
The team of FACT right from Sunil sir, Hiren sir, Shraddha maam,
Mandaar sir, everyone has been sweet and equally effective in
helping me achieve my dream. Shraddha maam and Mandaar sir have
been a great help in clearing the exams. Hiren sir and Kaatre
madam helped me in preparing my additional documents like my
SOP, LOR and resumes and other things required in the
application process.They helped me in selecting the universities
and in filling out the application forms and sending the
packets. Sunil sir has guided me with his thoughful advice.
Everyone has supported me in the numerous process of applying
abroad. The whole journey just seems like a cakewalk to me and
FACT helped me achieve it so easily. All i can say is a hearty
thanks from my heart to the entire FACT team.
FACT, U ROCKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!
When I decided to pursue my
post graduation overseas and thought of applying, I was confused
in deciding how to go about the entire procedure. Through a
friend's recommendation, I joined FACT and in due course
realized, how things went on very smoothly and everything fell
in place. Fact has been with me in each and every step towards
fulfilling my dream of studying in the abroad universities. The
people whom i need to thank are, beginning with our very own
Mrs.Katre ( madam),the ultimate confidence booster, and without
whom i would have never been able to live my dream today. Next,
Vaishali madam, who has been very kindly and patiently solving
all the doubts and problems during application and visa. Avinash
sir, for helping me in the visa procedures , and last but not
the least prakash dada, for managing the applications and
helping them send safely. I heartily thank each and every one
for being with me throughout my journey !!
They all make a perfect team !!
cheers to them!!
I sit on this rocking chair in
the campus of WPI today and exactly an ear back I was in ocean
of doubts if I will ever be able to pursue this dream of getting
a masters degree from a good university, then came Avinash sir
who helped me a lot and showed me direction of doing the things
the right way right from SOPs to applying to the universities to
finalize it. I am glad that I came to FACT and it was one of the
best decisions I took for getting into MS course over here.
Well,My experience at FACT was
quite nice. From selecting universities to the Mock Visa
Interviews,FACT people are always there for me 24*7. People at
FACT like Hiren,Onkar are very helpful and interactive.They
always tell you what is best for you.Applying to US universities
is very cumbersome process but because of FACT,I nevet stuck up
at any point.I highly recommend FACT consultation for Higher
studies in US.FACT rocks!!!
I would like to take this opportunity to thanks fact for their
well-deserved efforts on my application and Visa process for
US Universities. As I was employed and had a hectic work
schedule It was very difficult for me to do all the application
formalities like SOP , Recommendation by my own . Fact made my
overall application process very easy . I would like to
especially thanks ajay sir for their efforts for getting me into
good University and would like to wish FACT best of luck for
will remember the entire process beginning from selecting univs
to finalizing one to Visa prep. in the end to fun parties wit
Avinash sir ("part of our counseling sessions okk") all my life
and this is only because THE FACT Team made the otherwise tough
n tedious process look so simple, taking things one by one going
by every individuals pace, catering to to every student it
The most imp. thing is,

nt put this in simpler wordsn
specially please don’t ever doubt Avinash sir’s judgement :P, rt
sir ? )"
Thank you every one at FACT,
Special thanks to Avinash Sir n Katre Madam :)
To start off with, I would say that I am an
engineering student only because of FACT. Life had become hell
for me after my board exams and I had no options other than
taking up a career which would land me nowhere. At first it
sounds ridiculous when Sunil sir tells you the expenses that
you’ll have to face after you go to USA through FACT’s
supervision. But after sometime it starts making sense and now I
experience it myself. Precise counseling, no shitty business is
FACT’s motto. Guidance and help is available at FACT 24X7. No
matter what queries you have, FACT has the answers to them. I
owe every bit of my wonderful experiences in USA to FACT. Sunil
Sir’s surmounting advice, Avinash Sir’s guidance (special care
with sweet words I must say) and other teachers’ coaching will
definitely help you land in a place full of opportunities.
That’s my word for all the students at FACT.
When I first heard
of a FACT seminar, I was pursuing electrical engineering in the
first year of college. My mother and I attended the seminar
delivered by Sunil Shah sir. His talk totally transformed our
outlook toward the concept of ‘studying abroad’. My parents and
I thought that it would be great if I could pursue education in
the USA right from the Bachelors’ level.
And so began
my odyssey toward education in the USA. I enrolled in FACT and
started preparing for the SAT and TOEFL entrance tests. My
mentors- Amar Singh sir and Raghavan sir kept constant track of
my preparation, clarified my doubts, evaluated my answers and
instilled in me the confidence to face these tests smartly. I
scored very well in these examinations, in sync with the
expectations of my mentors. This was followed by the process of
application to universities. Avinash sir helped me choose the
universities after weighing their pros and cons in terms of
quality, my scores, scholarships and so on.
assisted me greatly with visa process. Raghavan sir guided me
step-by-step through the visa application process, whereas Katre
madam readied me for the actual visa interview.
atmosphere at FACT is very friendly and comfortable. I was
properly advised through every step and my doubts resolved. I am
now headed to the university of Texas for a BS in aerospace
engineering and I am largely thankful to FACT for helping me
secure a great step toward my career. I am sure FACT will
continue developing the careers of students in the future too.
- Thank you
"Perhaps the best thing about FACT is that they make it brutally
easy for you to prepare and reach the US. So much so, that you
tend to it for granted even before we get the visa! A very well
laid out system, friendly yet thoroughly professional, and
extremely approachable counselors help to take off your anguish
and pressures the moment you partner with FACT. Absolutely
recommended for anyone planning to study abroad!
I enrolled at the Thane branch with all kinds of
skeptic thoughts in my mind about ‘Will I be able to pursue MS
someday?’ Now looking back at the whole process, right from
working on those words for GRE to reaching US, I faced lot of
obstacles. But I had my counselor cum mentor cum guru cum
friend, Avinash Sir, and the whole FACT team as a matter of fact
with me. I remember going to the Thane office many times with a
major situation and hundreds of things going on in my mind to
meet Avinash Sir and would leave the office discussing about a
new movie or song or a cricket match, of-course after solving
the “major problem” in minutes. None of my problems were ever
new to him. He used to say, “This whole process is like a test
of whether you can handle difficult situations in MS, so
everyone should go through it.”
Now, Kiran Madam could easily be the sweetest
person on this planet. Initially, I was pretty apprehensive
about GRE, then the documents, the packets, the visa…basically I
had less information. But, Kiran Madam patiently cleared all my
doubts and explained the process in detail.
The best thing I liked about training in FACT was
that I could come to classes on my time. All the study material
was made available plus a math genius, Raghavan Sir, who used to
solve the most difficult problems with the most simplest of
methods. Beena Madam used to conduct verbal tests regularly. I
remember sitting for hours with 3 other friends in the
classroom. No one used to disturb us. All in all, the study
atmosphere was very well developed. The online website
maintenance team was also great.
Finally, the credit goes to Sunil Shah Sir who
created this FACT Family and I am glad to be treated as a part
P.S.:- Avinash Sir, U Rock…
F.A.C.T – Foreign
academic and consultancy training is what the board reads. But
according to me this firm does more than it actually speaks of.
If you are in FACT, I can assure you will get a good school in
the United States, whoever it may be then. First when you meet
SUNIL SHAH you get a small glimpse of FACT and what it does. You
feel great when you talk to him. It boosts your internal energy
“Tula America la pochavnach nusta
kaam nahi ahey majha.. jeveha tu FACT join kartos tevha pasun mi
tujha baba ase samajh. Joparyant tu tithey settle hot nahis
toparyant mala tujhi kalji lagli asnar. If u fail me, u better
know that I have a lot money to come there, slap u hard across
ur face and bring u back.”
These were the first words that he
said to me when I joined FACT. I wasn’t an extraordinary student
or something there. But I tried my level best to be one, and his
words were enough to build the confidence in you.
When I joined FACT and knew that I
had to take SAT and TOEFL, I was a bit tensed about the whole
thing. There was RITEN Sir to help me through all this. He was a
brilliant teacher. He was extra ordinary in math. He taught me
math with all the tricks used to solve the same. Each problem
was to take less than a minute. And it did happen at the end
that I could solve some problems in math in less than a minute.
It was amazing. Without him I would never have cracked SAT so
The best thing about FACT is that,
all of the staff is so friendly and helping that you never feel
uncomfortable talking to them.
I have no words to thank AVINASH
Sir for all the trouble he took through this procedure. I took
admission in FACT Borivali but I used to go to Thane, each day.
He is a brilliant man. He is a man who can handle loads of work
at the same time. He is a very funny person. If he talks to you
in a high pitch, you better understand that it is for your good
and you have done a mistake.
If you have taken admission in
FACT, you need not worry about going to the US and about a good
school. All you need to do is complete all the paperwork told by
them and sit and study for the exams and get a good grade. All
the rest will be taken care of and I am pretty sure it is!
So stop thinking about getting a bad college in US and just
THANKS TO ALL the faculty of FACT.
I will recommend it to anyone and everyone who asks me how I got
“FACT My Ticket to
Before joining FACT I was
completely unaware about the educational opportunities that
existed in the US. However after enrolling
here, new windows were opened for me.
FACT helped a lot in my preparation, and this was not only
limited to the field of academics.
They were of great service while short listing colleges and even
while preparing for the Visa Interview. The entire college
application process was a breeze just because of their guidance
and timely help.The
excellent staff including the likes of Ashwini, Nandini Ma’am
and Ajay Sir made the entire process enjoyable and I would like
to thank them whole heartedly.
I personally feel that FACT is one organization that I would
recommend to all students aspiring to study in the US.
I look forward to your class
When I come to FACT.
You're an awesome teacher;
I think you're very cool.
You're smart and fair and friendly;
You're helping all of us.
And if I got to grade you,
From me you'd get A+!
I'm happy that you're my teacher;
.As my role model you inspire me
To dream and to work and to reach.
With your kindness you get my attention;
Every week on Saturday you are planting a seed
Of curiosity and motivation
To know and to grow and succeed.
You help me fulfill my potential;
I'm thankful for all that you've done.
I admire you each day, and I just want to say,
As a teacher, you're number one!
When I began FACT class I think I knew
The kind of challenges you'd make me face.
You gave me motivation to pursue
The best, and to reject the commonplace.
Your thinking really opened up my mind.
With wisdom, style and grace, you made me see,
That what I'd choose to seek, I'd surely find;
You shook me out of my complacency.
I thank you now for everything you've done;
What you have taught me I will not outgrow.
Your kind attention touched my mind and heart;
In many ways that you will never know.
I will remember you my whole life through;
I wish that all my teachers in Texas will be like you.
I am a physiotherapy student who had enrolled in FACT last year.
My experience with the faculty is worth sharing and hence I am
penning down this testimonial. The faculty at FACT is very
helpful and co operative. The application to US universities can
be a very tedious process but it was made simple and easier for
me by the faculty at FACT.Right from the short listing of the
universities to visa procedure they have never hesitated in
extending their help to the students at any hour of the day.
Avinash sir has been very helpful and patient guiding me
through the entire procedure.Be it choosing a university, or
sending an application file or arranging the visa documents or
the visa mock interviews, he has guided me for every small
little doubt I had. Its because of him that I have found a
friend(ex FACT student) in my campus whos been immense helpful
in helping me settle in a new city and a new country. Raghvan
Sir & Katre Mam have also been sweet & kind to help me out. The
visa session which was arranged at Dadar was very conducive in
preparing for the documents well before time. The over all
experience at FACT was amazing and I take with me lot of things
that I learnt from the faculty members which will help
even in future as I step in a new phase of my life . I would
like to thank the entire staff of the FACT to make my journey
from the application process to the visa interview so
simple & truly cherishable.
F.A.C.T....hmm would never have been a part of it if it had not
been for me reading the educational
times that Tuesday! At that time I had given MHT and
ASSO. CETS and the one thing I kepttelling my mom was," Atleast I
could do my internship abroad" becausemy professors and known doctors
gave all knowledge & tempted me aboutmedical studies abroad but said
nothing about "HOW". What I wanted toknow was what kind of entrance
exams, which country, which universityand a class that could guide me
through the entire process. Surprisingly true that ad on ET
by F.A.C.T about seminar claimed thatF.A.C.T has all answers. So I
immediately decided to check it out withmy mom( It was a free seminar so
nothing to loose!) I still vividly remember that
seminar! Against all odds a person showing you the US pathway that
too with scholarship....would you believe? Not me. But when someone
delivers each & every word with suchconfidence and with evidence you
tend to believe! And the person I amtalking is none other than Sunil
Sir! Then after all discussions andfollowing Sunil Sir's advise got
enrolled in F.A.C.T for BS inpre-medicine & got started with
Shraddha Di( my trainer). My mom putsit right! “Day or night.. Even
for the slightest doubt without anysecond thought…I would pick up my
cell & call her” Anyone would getannoyed…but she answered each
query with that same smile! that’sShrtaddha Di! I even remember the
frantic calls I have made to SunilSir & short notice appointments.
But he was always there to sooth mynerves & also scold me! Avinash
sir helped my confused mind decide theright university and Katre Madam
and Ragvan Sir guided me well throughthe VISA process preventing me
from falling for any possible glitch! The end result I have 6 admits in
hand, 4 with scholarship! Now I am headed to Mississippi State
University for BS in Pre-medicine & all this with no financial burden on
my family! All thanks to the entire team of F.A.C.T!!!
My experience at
fact has been one of a kind, right from the beginning be it the
teaching faculty or the counsellors all of them have played an
exceptional role in my journey to the US. The teaching faculty
sticks by you right to the end be it verbal or quant one on one
sessions with the students instill the kind of confidence which
is a must on the day of your examination on the other hand the
counsellors your first level of communication at fact but not
the last have been a constant force of hope and the will to be
better than the best. Students at fact are not just customers,
they are family...and i am proud to be a part of this family.
I joined FACT amidst the hustle
of my engineering admissions in Mumbai. I was devastated
knowing I couldn’t secure an admission here, was going through a
really rough patch. I learned that studying in the US was an
option I could take. Sunil Sir instilled the faith in me that I
would surely, no matter what, get an US university admit. Yet,
US seemed like a distant dream.
FACT guided me through the thick
and thin of the whole process starting from the SAT and TOEFL
preparations, through the filling up of university forms,
sending them, deciding upon one (phew!) and also the visa
process (jitters). It’s only because of Shraddha Madam and the
training she gave me that I scored high on my tests, leading to
my admit into good university, for Aerospace Engineering in the
honours program. In fact I received good admits that I applied
to under Avinash Sir’s guidance.
Katre Madam, Kiran Madam, and
everyone else at FACT have always been lending a helpful hand.
It’s like a small family. All my little, unnecessary worries
were taken care of. I never felt the hesitation to ask the
silliest of questions and they never declined to answer. I hope
to continue receiving supervision for the way that lies ahead.
I don’t have enough words to
explain the magnitude of gratitude I feel towards FACT.
FACT..its a organization which
stands for its name…no exaggerations..no underestimation...A
year before a seminar by Mr. Sunil shah helped
me decide the way I would shape my career. Not knowing a
thing about how to go abt it, Savita mam and Avinash sir
literally had 2 hold my fingers and walk me through each and
every step of it. Professionals with a perfect personal touch,
never felt like I was talking to my counselors. they were more
of friends to me. Always there to guide me, however stupid the
problem maybe…they r the reason I’m going 2 be on a airplane to
US this august..I could use all the adjectives I learnt for my
GRE and still it won’t do ne justice to their knowledge and
capabilities..Hats off guys..thnks a ton..
I had joined FACT for MS and visa counselling for FALL 2010.
Right on day 1, when for the first time I saw Mr Avinash Veer, I
thought that would he properly direct me in applying to US
univs???? Then from day 1, he started with his work for making
my dreams come true. Mr.Avinash Veer is a very versatile person
with friendly nature. His way of talking is just like a college
guy. But i must say that he has tremendous experience about his
work. He made me apply in 11 univs. Out of 11, I got 5 admits.
One with 20% waiver and other with instate tuition + GA.
Services provided in FACT are more than sufficient. keeping in
mind the academic background of student, very well SOPS and
recommendation letters are wirtten by faculties. Katre Mam is
one of the premier faculty in FACT. Sunil Sir, Katre Mam and
Avinash Sir are the pillars of FACT. I was rejected for VISA for
first time. Reason behind this was that I took it lightly and
dint attend mock interviews. Then Katre Mam and Avinash Sir
cherished me and made me capable of achieving VISA and I did it.
Thanks to FACT and all faculties for enabling me to achieve my
A highly impressive presentation by Mr.Sunil Shah & I landed up
at FACT.Even though I was already through with my GRE,my father
who was greatly influenced by the communicaton skills of Mr.
Shah insisted that I should associate myself with FACT.Then
TOEFL followed under the guidance of Mr.Amar Singh. I fared very
well. Had I been with them while preparing for GRE,my result
would have been much better.Anyways, not to cry over spilled
milk.Next, interactions with Avinash Sir, Katre Madam, Raghavan
Sir & I landed with admits at four Universities.Documentation
process seemed so simple due to their experience & knowledge.
Beleive me, the entire staff was like a comforter at times when
my mother panicked.All her anxieties vanished the moment she
would ask Amita to fix up an appointment with Katare Madam.
In short, this team at FACT deserves salutations. Thank you
Looking forward to your guidance & co-operation even after we
land at USA.
FACT " Fantastic
Adminisrtation & (very)Cooparative Team "

Searching for a right university
which matches your requirement can be an overwhelming and often
daunting task. However Avinash sir made it very easy for me.
What I found most pleasing was his professional approach toward
his work. He helped me in every step, right from selecting the
right universities, assembling the documents to the visa
interview preparation. I would recommend others to join FACT and
take the experience help of Avinash sir.
FACT has been a good experience. I had started my counseling
very late. Still I could manage with a fairly good admit from a
renowned university. This is not possible only with good
documentation backed with good academic record. I was helped
majorly by Avinash sir who is available surprisingly 24* 7 at
thane. It might be difficult to find such a dedicated employee
in some other offices always available to his students. The SOP
prepared by him was excellent in a fairly short time. Also he
was a great help in the drafting of recommendations and short
listing the universities. Katre Madam and Raghavan sir were
immensely helpful during my VISA counseling.
I don't know where to begin
from...FACT has guided me all along through GRE/TOEFL
preparation to University selection till my Visa approval.
One meeting with Sunil Sir and
you know you'll reach USA sooner than you expect!
Though ALWAYS busy, Avinash Sir definitely takes time to help
you with your SOPs / Reco letters and Online application. He
understands his students individually and knows what's best for
each one of them. He knows A to Z of the application procedure
and would ensure that your application process is completed well
I owe a BIG part of my Visa approval to Katre Ma'am who
patiently helped me prepare for my interview, took endless mocks
and was my biggest support system throughout the procedure..even
before just catching her flight to Europe!
Here, I should definitely mention about Raghavan Sir who even
knows how many spaces and characters are to be filled in the
Visa application to complete it in one go within the allotted
I had a whale of time with the friendly faculty at Vashi ~
Savita, Kavita and Sonali....more of my buddies than teachers
Overall, my journey with FACT was awesome, wonderful and it will
remain etched as a beautiful part of my life!!
Thank you FACT team!
FACT is an excellent organization
which offer Quality Advice on Quality Higher Education. I joined
FACT & Mr. Avinash was looking after my case. He helped me a lot
in application procedures, visas, scholarships and many other
topics n becoz of his guidance I am studying in US.
A very gud person who treats all his students like friend n
always smiling. If u hv any doubt u can call him 24x7 and he is
more than happy to help u out. I will recommend his name to all
students who seek my advice on Education Counseling.
Thanks to FACT and MR. AVINASH,
Avinash, u have made my life man, I can just recall one sentence
frm a so called grtest consultant of Pune,"You can enter in USA
on this GRE score if George Bush or Bil Gates will recommend
you." and I met George Bush n Bil Gates in india itself.hahaha
Ek us ka chakkar maro man, ur students must be dying to see u
bbyye, take care,
FACT: Probably is the Best thing
happened to my life….
As I am not from Mumbai…It is not
just counseling and training class for me…
It is like family for me in Mumbai
from last two and half year.…
Avinash Sir, the Perfect counselor,
Big brother, and one of the best friend…
I was not satisfied with my
research for Doctorate study in India….
He not only suggested me US
Universities to satisfy my thirst for Biochemistry, but was also
with me in my ups and downs in life at Mumbai….
Katre Madam, Raghwan Sir, Kiran
Madam and Beena madam were always there like family members to
guide me in my progress of GRE, TOEFL, Application Process and
Visa Counseling …..
Now I am in USA, doing my doctorate
The Best thing is that, all they
are still in contact with me.. and asking me about my well-being…
Well FACT was not just a counseling place for me but it has been
my first place where I worked for 6 months........that’s why I
can say it is best at what it is...... Without FACT 's guidance it was
not possible for me to be at a place where I am right now, they
always back me with my desires and help me to achieve my
endeavors FACT is a home to me with a big
daddy like Sunil Shah and a brother like Avinash....( I have
been closely associated with Sunil sir and Avinash sir they are
completely rocking and happening) they have solutions to all
problems and a good network of helping people throughout US this
is the biggest strength they have.....
we just pay them for the pre
departure stuff but what’s more important is the post departure
help which they provide very easily with just a single
e-mail.......Thank you guys for all that you have done........
Facts of FACT:
1) Best consultancy and classes without any doubt.
2) Way too ahead of others in the race.
3) I bet you wont find better consultants than Avinash sir and
Sunil Shah sir. These two are the pillars of FACT along-with
Katre mam and Kiran mam (They all are always there for you, be
it anytime and don't forget, this bond is for a lifetime!)
4) The teaching faculty i.e. Raghavan sir (Quant) and Beena mam
(Verbal) will help you wonders with your preparations!
(Especially GRE and TOEFL)
About me :
1) Average GRE and TOEFL score but got admit to an appealing
2) I would like to make a special mention of Avinash sir who
helped me select very good universities which resulted in a
handsome number of replies. (Wish I had his brain)
3) The bottom-line is, these people have made my LIFE!
4) I would indeed, very
strongly recommend FACT for US aspirants..
5) Thank you FACT!
abbreviation of something big....They are the pioneers of U.s
education. A mixture of personal and professionalism always
yields high profits and their excellence in the same is above
par.. They molded an average Indian student into a U.s scholar
so ingeniously that I was awestruck at my own progress... Shrewd
advice by Ajay sir, assistance and attention when needed by
Nandini ma'am and the whole patronage offered by the whole
institution helped me find my niche. Walk in anytime and you
will be attended is the type of service they offer... what more
can one ask ? Let it be any question, any query, any problem it
will be met. Confidence and patience is something you should
inherit... I asked right from the difficulties in my SAT and
TOEFL to living in the U.S and to the country's beautiful
blondes and mind you I was assisted in all... they are friends
in company and friends for a lifetime.. They have pretty soon
become a part of my family make them yours too.. Best in the
market for education abroad they are the masters of solving your
skepticism... Life completely changes once you enroll here and
start visiting the office, there is some positive aroma in
there, you feel you are already flying I felt it the same last
year and Now I am... The people working for FACT are an asset
to the institution, they have competent skills in teaching, my
score increased double-fold in a week's time only because I
opted to work with them the whole day and they gave me their
would like to say no words in the English diction serves purpose
in what they are ....you have to experience the cliche
yourself....!!! I bow my head in gratitude for the whole
institution who gave a new direction to my being....So Go ahead
and Experience it yourself and if you aren't then you are
missing a whole different world...!
Its almost 1 am, am
back from office and predeparture shopping. i don't think i
could lose a moment to write down a few lines about the team
that made my dream and my parents wishes possible..not just the
team,the entire process before you say BYE
1. Mr. Avinash Veer is to the point, efficient and will not tell
you something you cannot do.
2. Other in the office are strictly sweet. They need to be that
or thats simply evolution.
3. Gmail Rocks! No Doubt Unsolved!
4. There is a purpose in the Statement of Purpose..its not a
statement of Past.
5 .You should be able to afford the schools rigour.
6. Choose schools and courses.. not happening cities
7. FACT is fact, its us who will be studying and slogging our
as***, so be ready for that.
8. Trust your instinct but gauge your ability. Apply wisely.
Thank you avveer (ping!), Mr. Shah, Kiran and Raghavan sir!
ख्वाहिशें ऐसी के हर ख्वाहिशपे दम निकलें.....
So true in my
case, but the only difference is that it’s not just me who has
sweated for getting this admission in MBA course
at Wake Forest University. Almost all the FACT group has put in
equal efforts to make this dream a reality.
It all started
exactly a year back when I met Sunil Sir, who was very excited
about working on my applications. As most of us must have
realized, his optimism and unwavering faith are very very
contagious. As my application process cycle went on, it was
these two qualities which played big role. Apart from guiding me
around the usual Admission process, Sunil Sir primed my mind for
the future challenges for MBAs. In one such incidence, my PC
broke down 3-4 days before the deadline, Sunil Sir, personally
made sure that it does no harm to my application, by borrowing
me his own brand new Netbook. I wonder how many counselors will
places, VISA counseling with FACT or rather Avinash Sir was real
fun. While going for VISA, I was so well prepared that I hardly
had any worries about not getting it. And in Avinash Sir, I now
have an excellent guide who helps students in more ways than one
can imagine, and trust me when I state this. It’s important to
mention the notable contributions from Shraddha & Payal during
various stages of the application.
From the first click on the application form, I have been
counting on the entire FACT team for the whole admission process
of MS in US. I can't thank enough to Avinash sir who was there
for me at every step and making everything so easy. I can only
imagine myself studying in one of the reputed universities of US
without him. My sincere thanks to every member of FACT for their
great work which is helping thousands of students like me to
achieve their dream.
There are many
abroad education consultancies but you will not find experienced
professionals in all those consultancies. FACT is a renowned
consultancy with branches all over Maharashtra. I heard about
FACT from one of my friend who is also studying in USA. She
suggested me to join FACT as she got better quality service from
them. I joined FACT just for admission and visa process but they
also allowed me to take few GRE & TOEFL classes and use their
books and notes which were very much helpful for me. The staff
in FACT (Thane branch) is really cooperative. Specially, Avinash
sir, he really helped me a lot. He was not just a sir but also a
friend because of which I was able to discuss each and every
problem with him. If you guys are planning for further studies
abroad then at least visit FACT once and I am sure you will
praise me and my review.
My experiences with FACT had been really fruitful. They were
phenomenal in preparing me for entrance exams (GRE and
TOEFL),pre-admission and post-admission process. Every thing was
so systematic and my admission in one of the best MIS University
is surely an evidence of that. I am completely satisfied the
time and effort which FACT team (especially Katre Mam and
Avinash Sir) took during my application process. I would like to
thank entire team of FACT for their effective and result
Students desire to
join a professional class for Foreign Education is given by FACT
. They motivated and showed positive direction towards my
future. A professional and friendly attitude by the faculty
members with students really helps to be comfortable. I
would recommend students going for foreign education to join
FACT for a tireless application and visa process. Faculty
members give personal attention to each and every student not
only till his/her admission is done in foreign university but
also keeps track of students during their study abroad. A
confused mind in deciding for foreign university may have a
negative effect on your future but professionals like FACT
taking a right decision in choosing the best university for you
like they had chosen for me will really help you to be
successful in life.
"Where there is will,there is way"..This is what FACT is all
about.. I had a dream to study in USA and FACT helped me
fullfill my dreams and showed me the right way to reach my
destination.. The name itself says it all Foreign Academy
Consultancy Training..Once i attended a seminar conducted by
FACT and i was in love with FACT from that day..FACT is a very
good institution and if we follow them we will land in USA with
ease.. The President of FACT Sunil Sir is the one who takes all
the efforts and hardwork just for students..I have never seen
such a gentle and smart human in my life.. Apart from Sunil Sir
the other faculty staffs of FACT is excellent.. Avinash Sir is
the one person in FACT to whom i thank from bottom of my heart..
All my journey from India to USA here in Mississippi is possible
just because of this one man Avinash Sir.. The efforts and pains
taken by Avinash Sir are memorable ones for me.. Right from the
first day Avinash Sir guided me to the right track from choosing
university till booking of my tickets.. Other faculty staff of
FACT is also helpfull Katre madam,Kiran madam,Bina madam and
haan forgot Raghvan Sir..I am thankfull to Raghvan Sir for
helping me in taking SAT,TOEFL dates and even when applying for
universities,even in Visa applications..I think even words are
less to say about FACT...I dont know how to thank FACT for
helping me.. I highly appreciate efforts and hardwork of FACT in
making students reach their destination.. I would suggest my
friends to join FACT and after few months one day you will be in
USA wondering how quickly you reached USA.. I feel so that
students after reaching USA tend to forget about FACT.. But i am
not the one of those..So i thought of sending this short
Its all because of you FACT..
THANKS FACT.. Jai Hind!!!!! Jai Maharashtra!!!!
“F.A.C.T. a perfect blend of
experienced and dynamic guidance.”
I would like to start my wonderful
experience with FACT by introducing myself and my position
before joining the academy. I was a 2009 graduate in Mechanical
Engineering with 'not-so-good' academics, and also I had
attempted GRE once before under the guidance of 'so-called' best
classes for foreign studies in Thane. But that training went in
vain as the approach for teaching and guidance there was not
according to the current position of that student or his
requirements, whereas after coming to FACT i was allotted a
personal counselor for my further procedure throughout who was
none other than Avinash Sir.
He really guided me well according
to my profile and also asked the Mathematics maestro Raghvan sir
to look after me as I was again taking GRE for a better score.
They showed me a perfect path where I found my confidence back
and finally I had a decent GRE score. Avinash Sir didn’t allow
time to hamper my career decisions as I was a bit late for
Spring 2010, he managed my studies, applications and deadlines
really well. Also in this less time, Beena mam helped me a lot
through my TOEFL preparation which resulted in a 100/120 score.
Inspite of my average acads I got admit from 8 out of 9 univs I
applied and mind you half of them were really some good names.
And here I land up in a reputed A
grade university in the heart of Silicon Valley. Thanks to the
whole faculty of FACT who provided a cooperative working
atmosphere to all students and the guidance of Avinash Sir who
boosted the confidence in me with ease.
Firstly I want to thanx FACT for their kind support and
co-opration. After givingn GRE I had left hope of applying for
any US universities and I was in search of German Uni. But sir U
have boosted me to take this bold step and u was always with me
during my tat tough journey. I hope we will maintain same
relations in future as I feel "Dosti ko duriya bat nahi sakati"
I have used word
dosti B'caz U r friend of mine dan a teacher.
and at last
I would like to
take this opportunity to express my heartfelt thanks to FACT
(Thane)and it’s entire team for your very active participation
in giving me information and advice to secure my seat for future
aviation in USA for the course MS-MIS. FACT has provide complete
guidance service for all issues relating to studies abroad, it’s
course plan , the required documentation & most importantly VISA
interview guidance .
I would like to give my special thanks to Avinash Sir for
enthusiastic participation in my career guidance. I have no
doubt that it would not have been the success that it is without
your presence. I especially appreciated you for offered contacts
you shared with me. Your assistance has been invaluable during
Please accept my sincerest appreciation for the fine job FACT
has done which will help me reaching the milestone in my career.
and the entire team of Fact had been of great help throughout
the Admission and visa process. The teaching Faculty especially
Beena Mam and Raghvan Sir were very supportive and of great help
throughout the GRE and the Toefl preparation.
I owe a
great deal to Avinash Sir who has been my mentor throughout the
Application and Visa procedure. He is a genius when it comes to
University selection, I got admits from some of the best
universities inspite of having poor Academics. Never quite
figured out his algorithm of university selection.
than that the Ambiance of the place, and the format of teaching
is very appealing and very less draining, makes u sit for longer
hours in the class.
was a great experience studying from Fact, I would strongly
recommend FACT to anybody who plans to study abroad. All the

Avinash sir is the
person who made it possible for me to get the admission in an US
university. I gave my GRE very late so I was not sure about my
chances of getting admission for fall. But then I went to FACT.
Avinash Sir explained me the whole thing and assured me that
still there was a possibility of getting into good university.
Even after sending applications I was not sure whether I will
get a admit. But to my surprise I received admits from good
universities including University of Pennsylvania. The visa
guidance was also superb and to the point. There are so many
myths that float among students preparing for visa interview.
FACT helped me to separate myths from facts!!! Beyond that he
gave me many useful tips and information that you can expect
only from a real friend.
For all those who are in a dilemma about US education, the best
remedy is a cup of Chai with Avinash sir! Do your hardwork,
trust the god and leave the rest to Avinash sir.
Avinash Sirjee, You
know I call many people sir but a very few Sirjee to whom I
really respect whole-heartedly and you are one of them because
you are really a gem kind of person.
First of all a
biggggggg Thanxxxxxxxxxxxx 4 everything u did to me, when I say
everything then it does not include just Admission & Visa
counseling but many other things apart from your job.
You were always
available to help me and sort out all my problems. I know I
asked very silly doubts many a times but still you did not
ignore them and cleared it all, and this is the way you treat
all your students which makes you special and different than
I was really lucky
to have you as my counselor in FACT. I just cant believe that am
in USA doing MS Computer Science not being an engineer from
India. Yes, you were the only person who made me believe that
even BSc students can go to USA for MS. I was always worried
about my decision of leaving VJTI and coming here as if I don't
get admits then I will be standing no where but I still remember
your dialogue that you always said me to relax me "rahul tension
mat le re tu us jayega aur VJTI se achi jagah jayega bas ab tera
visa hone ke baad apan party karenge". At that time I used to
always think that why are you so confident about this and now I
realized that it was coz u knew that ur gr8 SOP and Recos are
going to do wonders, which is exactly what happened with me.
I never even dreamt
of this dream that I will get an opportunity of studying here,
which you made real for me and moreover got a 100 % scholarship
above that just because of your SOP & recos.
Sending an ordinary
student from an ordinary place Nasik to USA with scholarship is
really a gr8 job that you did, that I will really cherish all my
Me my family and
all my frenz are now added to your fans list, coz u r t only
person who could and who made this true for all of us.
Am well settled and
more than happy here, and everything you suggested, guided and
advised me are coming true here even.
You are the best
counselor I have ever met. God bless you always which indirectly
will bless and make life of many students who gets you as their
I will always
highly recommend your name for any kind of education counseling.
I am sure of one
more thing that you are the richest person in USA, coz no one
else would be having so many houses here as you have. All your
students would be dying to see you in usa and would always love
to stay with you. So you have the most number of houses here
sirjee do plan to come once. But it should be a long tour coz u
will have to go to many places including my place first ok.
Thanks FACT for everything.
Missing you and
your invaluable guidance, Support & advises.
Hope to see you
It has been a very
good experience with the FACT, as I am an Architecture student
and we are very less in numbers as compared to the engineers, I
was very much worried and really had no idea how to go about the
whole admission/application and university selection. I got
enrolled in FACT in August 2009, as time progressed all the
crucial steps of my admission application, university selection
went very smoothly. Avinash sir judged my GRE scores pretty
nicely and gave me a list of universities which had programs
which met all my demands/offered the courses in the area of my
interest. As a result thanks to the FACT I was able to good
staff/partners/counselors are very helpful, special thanks to
Mr. Avinash Veer, for the support and pushing me to meet the
deadlines! And I am sure many of the students at FACT share the
same experience. A sincere thanks to Raghavan sir for helping me
out with the form filling and general guidance regarding the
VISA process. To conclude if you wish to get a good and genuine
guidance with your education abroad, FACT gives you much more
than what you would expect! Cheers to FACT!
From the very time
I joined FACT a year ago, you helped me get through the process
untiringly. From practicing for the TOEFL to sending in the
application to getting ready for the VISA interview, Avinash
Sir, you have been with me and among other things; your efforts
were also subjective to me getting admission here at Purdue
" It was definitely
an advantage joining FACT. I got my documentation complete on
time because of the prompt action taken by Avinash sir and
FACT team. Due to this I was able to get a admit
with 70% scholarship in the desired university.
Avinash sir’s efforts and guidance has fetched me an admit with
scholarship. He was instrumental in selecting universities, in
preparation of application, recommendations & essays. It was a
I remember calling
him at least 15 times daily for silly queries, but Avinash sir
was helpful each and every time. The visa counseling done by
Avinash sir was tremendous. The 15 mock visa interview
sessions done with him really helped me to crack the visa
Avinash sir has been a blessing in disguise for me and I wish
him all the best for the future. Thanks for making my
dream come true."
Thank u sir...
My counseling was
done by Avinash Sir. He guided me in University Selection,
application paperwork and VISA counseling. His research
about Universities is very extensive and hence I trusted his
judgement completely while applying to universities.
The paper-work required for application is always big headache
for every student. But, Avinash Sir helped me a lot in my
applications. He wrote precise and good SOP for me. He was
always available to listen any problems I faced for my
paper-works and always gave good suggestion to solve that
Avinash Sir also
helped me in preparing for my VISA interview. He used to study
each student’s case and then he would tell the student what
questions he can expect in the Interview. He almost took my 7-8
mock interviews which helped me a lot preparing for the
Last but not the
least, Sunil Sir motivated me a lot .He was the one who
convinced me to go for abroad studies. He was ready to listen to
any problems and always guided me correctly.
I thank and
appreciate Avinash Sir and Sunil Sir for their great guidance.
It was wonderful experience being in the FACT.
I am Dinesh Shivlal Jain. I am placed in a top institution only
because of FACT. This is because my GRE score is 1080 which is
average. But due to my academic performance and guidance
provided by Ajay sir and the entire team of FACT, I was able to
obtain admission in one of the top 12th university. Also because
of the project work in last year of engineering and impressive
SOP provided by FACT, I was awarded by a scholarship of $5,000.
It is due to the time given by Ajay Sir in deciding the
university according the academic background, GRE score, project
work and financial position was I able to get top university and
clear VISA interview easily.
I had heard a lot
about Avinash sir from my brother, who was sir’s student. When I
decided to do my studies abroad my brother suggested do the
counseling in FACT under him. I am glad that I took his
suggestion. Avinash sir was always there for me whenever I
needed help, be it GRE or TOEFL. He always had time for everyone
and everything. He is a great motivator for my visa interview.
He is more of a friend than a sir. The time I spent in FACT is
Right from deciding the universities, preparing the SOPs,
Recos, Resumes, preparing the application
packets and dispatching them, financial preparation for
the visa, mocks for the visa,
FACT is the best.
would like to thank the whole team of
FACT for making all this so easy, simple and
I am specially grateful to
Ajay Sir for giving me valuable guidance during my
admission and visa processing.
I would also
like to thank Avinash Sir for helping me to shortlist
helped me in making my career.
Thank you FACT for everything.
Hi I am Prathamesh
Deshpande. I liked FACT very much for handling and finally
deporting such cynical like I am. FACT teaching, counseling,
visa preparation and staff are excellent. I would like to bold
and underline staff for their helpfulness, giving
good guidance, calm and composure nature. I feel FACT as my home
only because of FACT staff. I very very much thankful to Katre
mam, Ajay sir, Nandini Ashwini and Navpreet mam, Vishal and
with the entire FACT team was that of a mentor-protégé. Unlike
the usual counsellor-student relationship, what I experienced
was an organized guidance with a touch of friendliness. Like
every other engineering student I was in a total dilemma about
my career after completing my bachelors. I really wanted to
pursue masters studies but I was unable to make a move as there
were many options suiting my interests and I had to make the
right choice. It is at this crucial moment that I approached the
FACT team to find a cure to my indecisiveness. I developed a
strong relationship with the entire team especially with my
mentor Avinash sir. He offered excellent advice on all
situations ranging from academic, financial as well as personal
that we discussed. Even when I didn't think I really needed any
guidance and we were just discussing current events, he offered
insight and suggestions that were invaluable. And today when I
am admitted to one of the best graduate colleges in USA, I have
no regrets to say that the experience was overwhelmingly
Cheers to the
entire FACT team.
I'm a proud student and an output of FACT. I completed my
Diploma in Mechanical Engineering. As my interest was towards
Automobiles, I confirmed it as my major for the Bachelor's. As I
was enrolling myself into the CAP round, I came to know that, I
have only four colleges all throughout Maharashtra for
Automobiles. So it was almost impossible to get into the college
in Mumbai (Saboo Siddik) because, Diploma students do not have
much seats available as they go to the second year. At that
moment of time, I thought I would be screwed up and finally get
into a low graded college. Then Sunil sir came into my way. He
is my Dad's good friend. He said, "If you do not get to study
Automobile in India what's the problem, go and study it from
USA". At that time, I was like out of the world. He introduced
me to Mr. Avinash. He's a great guy. He had helped me a lot. He
is a person who may scold you or make a fun of you, but he
really wants you to achieve your goals. He had literally toiled
a lot to find me a good recognized university in USA.
Beena madam and Raghavan sir are too good in their fields. I
can’t explain how good Raghavan sir is; he is very sharp at all
kinds of calculations. Kiran madam and Katre madam are also too
good. The people working under FACT are not like robots, which
respond only to your questions. They are people with magic hands
and words that have changed and are changing and will continue
to change their students’ fate or future. They work as a team
not just for money. They work for changing someone’s world. I
had pretty serious problems with my VISA work. And many such
incidences. Avinash sir knows it very well. He used to tease me
a lot on these things. But it taught me to be Proactive. My
message to all newcomers to FACT is to use your resources as
well as possible and enlighten your future. You all would surely
have a bright future.
For people who don't know him well think he is:
A ----> Arrogant V ----> Vocal I ----> Irresponsible N ----> Nihilistic A ----> Amoral S ----> Self-centered H ----> Hardheaded
But those who actually know him
refer him as:
A ----> Articulate V ----> Vivacious I ----> Intelligent N ----> Nutty A ----> Accomplished S ----> Special H ----> Humorous
In all a good counselor but a much better friend!
When I enrolled at FACT I had numerous doubts
about “Studying Abroad”, starting from whether it is a good idea
to pursue education away from my home country and what I should
do to VISA Interview, (the most dreadful event in every
Prospective International student’s life. Kiran Madam’s
induction on the course simplified my doubts to great extent.
One of the best things about FACT is the style of
coaching. We never followed the traditional classroom pattern as
it was more of an interactive session. Raghavan Sir and Beena
Madam were always ready to help me with any of my queries for
Quant and Verbal. Their experience and dedication for students
is overwhelming. Expertise of the faculty made helped me a
lot in studying the trickiest problems of quant and the highly
exhaustive word list. There were other faculty members of FACT
Chetan and Sonali who shared their knowledge with us. They made
me study even during weekends!!! Another best feature of FACT is
the e-learning on the website run by the IT team of FACT. It
gives students the confidence to face the standardize tests and
a very essential factor to excel in GRE and TOEFL.
After GRE comes the University selection process.
Avinash Sir’s expertize in this matter helped a lot. He makes
appropriate analysis of a student’s scores, academics and course
selection (in my case: Pharmacy administration) which made sure
that I received admits from good universities. The entire
application process was made easy by the FACT team. Avinash Sir
and Raghavan Sir helped extensively during Visa Process. The
numerous mock interviews taken by Avinash Sir gave me confidence
to face the Visa officer.
All in all entire FACT team has highly dedicated
members and helped me in many ways than I can describe in this
testimonial. I thank you all for your support.
testimonial for FACT is difficult, not because what to write
..?.. but what all to write..... Because my experience is vast
in FACT from cup of Tea to Dessert in other words from tutoring
Almost more than a
year I have been and from the Office Assistant - Mr. Pravin to
Chairperson - Mr. Sunil Shah ---- All are so caring and
They converted my
dream in reality and i would really like to thanks Mr. Avinash
Sir, he always guided me in all my procedures from test date to
final bag packing to US. It's all because of FACT team many of
students are here in US fulfilling there dreams. I have some
wonderful memories with Avinash sir while having admission and
visa counseling process.
I would also like
to thank Kiran Mam because of her convincing statement made me
to enroll in FACT.
Thanks to Bina Mam,
Raghvan Sir, and all staff members for helping me for making my
Hi, I am having a great time in university of Colorado. This
couldn’t have been possible without the guidance and help of all
of the members of FACT who guided me entirely in my path of
going to one of the very good colleges of the US in such a
smooth way. And special thanks to Shraddha mam from Borivali
branch and also a special mention to Sunil Sir for bearing me
for a long time. I will Always remember all the moments we had
together and thanks a ton again to be my guide and mentor.
My association with
the FACT Thane began in 2009. Right from the onset, Avinash sir
has been really instrumental in guiding me through the right
path until I landed in the US. The visa interview sessions, the
application packet preparation and the university selection
process were all very smooth. The visa interview sessions with
Katre mam were really helpful. I still give my friends and
juniors the same set of answers that Katre mam had given me for
the visa questions, and I don’t think any of them has ever been
denied the visa. Kiran mam was very helpful by making sure that
my application packet was complete. Apart from that I think
Tulsa Patil mam, Amit sir and Benazir mam were of great help and
were very instrumental in the GRE and TOEFL coaching. It’s great
to be a part of the FACT family. This institute is surely
raising the bar and i am almost certain that the quality of
coaching and guidance I received from FACT would not have been
Thanks a lot.
I'm not really sure
how or where to begin because I'm not sure I could do them
credit. But rest assured, joining FACT was one of the best
decisions I have made. The faculty was amazing and helped me out
at every step of the way. A special thanks to Sunil and Avinash
Sirs, I could call them even the middle of the night for advice
and they would oblige. Also, not to forget Katre Ma'am and
Raghvan Sir who guided me during a large part of my application
and Visa process.
As a result of all their hard work, I got admission and
scholarships from every university I applied to.
Thanks a lot FACT.
Indeed it was
lengthy, rough and quite challenging journey until I get F1
visa. Basically I belong to middle class family; I think Lower
middle class suits better. In spite of getting Visa, I was not
sure whether I would be able to fly to US, because my Loan got
sanctioned at around 6 pm i.e the day before my flight was
FACT journey begins with Katre Mam (Mam I'm the one who got your
reference from your Friend Kolpe - Ratnagiri). Thanks to all
Fact staff who helped me through out this successful journey
specifically to Bina, Kiran, Shraddha and Raghvan sir, sorry if
I have miss anyone. As I am BSc student with 4 yrs work ex, few
consultancies confirmed that to pursue admission for Masters in
US I should have 16 yrs education. But FACT proved this wrong
and helped me to get two I-20 out of four applications and the
Man behind this result is none other than Avinash Sir. He is
tough but awesome and has played important role through out this
journey, in fact in my life as well. He guided me in the right
manner and shown me the exact way. I was doing night shift job
and I used to get only 4hrs to prepare my GRE stuff. And at same
time my Quant was very weak in fact Verbal as well so due to low
score at first attempt, I appeared twice for GRE and TOEFL as
per Avinash suggestion. And I made through. He is really tough
but very genuine, realistic and result oriented man. I am very
happy with his guidance .
Once again thanks to Fact and Hats off to Avinash Sir who has
changed my life, brings twist into my career and of course to
make my dream comes true.
F.A.C.T (Foreign Academic
Consultancy & Training) …. These four words might look pretty
simple to understand but getting into a foreign university is a
quite lengthy and tedious process, but F.A.C.T made my path to
the university much easier. As a new born baby needs his mother
to flourish or grow healthy likewise I think getting into a good
university without F.A.C.T is very difficult. Right from my
training for GRE to getting my visa FACT was there with me. I
thought 1140 was a bad score and I won’t get a good university,
but I was totally wrong. Now I am in The University of Texas ,
one of the best universities for Mechanical & Aerospace
Engineering only because of FACT. I was in FACT Nasik for my GRE
and TOEFL training. Vaishali Ma’am and Sameep Sir
guided me nicely throughout this process and I am very thankful
to them. Whether good times or bad they and Prakash were
always with me and gave a good supporting hand.
My special thanks to Katre
Ma’am, Savita Ma’am and Avinash Sir who are really
working hard in shaping students towards their goals and
fulfilling their dreams. Without them my journey to US would
have been impossible and that’s true. Due to some security
problems my visa was on hold, But with the help of experts
experience and advice everything became smooth and I got my visa
as they said.
Lastly how can one forget Sunil
Sir. He is a good motivator. When I got depressed with my
visa hold he was the one who motivated me. He encouraged me to
enjoy as much as I can in the visa hold period saying you
deserve your visa and you will get it . I am really thankful to
him as I enjoyed that duration instead of being depressed.
Once again special thanks to
Sunil Sir , Katre Ma’am , Avinash Sir , Savita Ma’am , Vaishali
Ma’am and all other staff of FACT who contributed in making
me reach great heights .
I did my bachelors
degree in mechanical engineering with not that great acads and
test score. I wanted to apply for Mining and Mineral
engineering for spring 2011. As a BE Mechanical it was not that
easy for me to get admit for Mining program which is offered
only in 13 Universities all over USA but Avinash Sir made it
possible and admit was not from any random university but it was
from quite a reputed University in the world for my program. And
made me 1st student to have admit for that program in
I thank FACT not
only for SOP RECO and help during my application process but
also for the encouragement and motivation during these six
months of cumbersome process. Visa counseling was the best part
of the whole process. It was most imp part but Avinash sir made
it a cake walk ;).
Avinash sir for all your words and motivation and I hope you
will continue to help me in future. I also thank all members of
FACT family for support Keep the good work going J
God bless u FACT
take care !
म्हणजे लैच भारी माणूस! Keep
Avinash Sir, I will
be flying to US on the 5th, as you know. And I must say that I
am extremely satisfied with admit and see excellent
opportunities for me. Let me take some time to THANK YOU for
this as I got something better than what I deserved, thanks to
your help and guidance. Thank You for all your efforts and an
amazing sincere work ethic followed by you and all the other
people at FACT. I really appreciate that you counseled me not by
following just a simple, standard procedure, but by
understanding MY UNIQUE NEEDS and helping me reach my goals. I
was definitely benefited a lot by Avinash Sir’s vast knowledge
of the American University system and your accurate judgment of
the courses offered by various Universities.
Thank You for sticking to ground realities and advising in a way
that would actually help me and not just make me 'feel good'
Wishing you and the
FACT team all the best and keep rocking throughout and continue
to have bumper seasons like Spring 2011. I really like that your
ideals are genuine and not just a marketing slogan. Continue to
follow them and help more people get closer to achieving their

They help me in many ways. They are one of the best
consultancies. Best in the way dat before joining the fact i
gone to many xyz consultancies they said me nothing about
scholarship. But fact helped me. They have nice trainers.
Shraddha was always there to help me at any time. sunil sir were
usually encourage me. Avinash Sir and Kiran Mam always supported
me in my document. And Katre mam have helped me lot in my visa
process. Riten sir gave me some important quant technique. Last
but not the least Hiren sir was also supportive. In short entire
fact was nice. They are very supportive. Bcoz of them my dream
of studying in US came true and today i am there. i still cant
believe, its like a dream. I would recommend my frnds dat if
they want to study in abroad then they shld go with fact bcoz
they will help you in right manner. My visa was rejected twice.
I was confused wat to do. But fact took my preparation so
perfectly that i rocked third tym. Thank you fact once again.

Hi friends!!My name
is harsh and I am very glad to leave you guys a testimonial
about F.A.C.T. I had joined F.A.C.T. a year ago for guidance and
counseling. The staff of the F.A.C.T. gave me proper guidance
and teaching for my entrance tests like GRE and TOEFL, and I was
able to clear them without any tension. They make you to give
many online and computer adaptive tests which boosts your
confidence level. They advised me during my entire application
process, which made it easy and comfortable. I had a guarantee
of admission to reputed university in USA. They gave proper visa
training, so I secured my visa. The entire experience was
great, wonderful, friendly and very helpful.
Last but not the least, enrolling
with F.A.C.T. is not limited until you fly to USA, they are
there forever to help you in your ups and downs.
can blindly trust on...!!!
It gives me
pleasure to write this testimonial for FACT who made my journey
towards MS a smooth and satisfying one. When I gave my GRE
because of my low scores, I was totally confused if i would get
an admission in a good university. As I was working it was not
possible for me to retake the GRE because of my busy schedule.
That time i went to FACT n I personally spoke to Mr. Sunil Shah
who really helped me gain my confidence back and assured me of
giving admission into a university of good repute. He and his
team collected sufficient Data from me about my work ex, my
academics, extra curricular etc. and then Avinash Sir worked on
my SOP and LORs so well that In spite of getting low GRE scores
the final outcome was fantastic.
application process went well. I was aiming to apply in the
universities having good background with minimal costs. Avinash
sir gave me the perfect list of universities and then i applied
in 5 universities out of which i got 4 admits. Let me tell you
this person helped me so much in clearing my small small doubts.
I am really thankful to him.
the main task was collecting all the financial documents for
visa and cracking it. Fact had organized one seminar where we
had given thorough information on organizing things after
getting admits from universities which I found truly helpful.
Needless to say that the visa process went well without any
hindrance. If you guys have any questions regarding further
studies or application process then this is the BEST place you
Consultancy & Training (FACT) is the institute which has
made a foundation for my educational background. FACT is a very
helpful institute and has an experienced faculty who are always
there for you. Rather than a simple institute, it can
be referred as a "Solution Center" for every individual
who is seeking for abroad studies. In this institute every
student is provided with personalized solution.
I think VISA
success rate is the real strength of FACT. As I was the only one
out of those 8 students standing in a line on counter 14 in VISA
embassy who’s VISA was approved. This proves that FACT takes
extra efforts to guide students through important step that is
US VISA. I am always grateful to this institute which made my
dream come true of studying in USA.I will recommend FACT to each
and every person who seeks my advice on educational counselling.........!!!!!!
As a Journalist,
the one year spent with FACT in planning my MA Journalism was
the way I like it-Online. Help was available 24x7 with Mr. Hiren
Rathod and Mr. Avinash Veer dicing out valuable advice at the
sound of a ping. When the crescendo and volume of pings rose, I
hopped in to FACT's Borivali or Andheri (my favorite) office.
Being brutally honest, I relied on FACT for the moral support.
Facts speak for
themselves. I shall be beginning my Journalism Master's in
August 2011 from world's first and the best Journalism school.
Missouri School of Journalism has been the effervescent 'dream'
university. And the easy-does-it manner of FACT's Application
'file' has thoroughly worked. I was admitted in United States' 7
The bank of
On a personal
level, Hiren has been a great friend. I remember him telling me
a million instances of his stay in US as a Graduate Student
(Clemson University) and my questions never seemed to end! We'll
remain great friends now. On the other hand, Avinash Sir has
been the ultimate authority to ask any question under the Sun. I
thoroughly remember being told, "It is tough to be considered
for Journalism Scholarships as you're not a Journalism
Undergrad". But hey, I won a $20,000 Fellowship! So the
possibilities are endless. Trust this man, blindly.
May I formally
thank the whole team of FACT.
Special Note: For
Journalism, make sure you meet Miss Shraddha Kurmi. Her words,
"Anybody can be a Journalist from the time he believes she/he is
Journalist" have stuck with me and how!
FACT – has made me flourish and helped me extend
my horizons further… .
As in both counseling and teaching was a great
help to me ,but I will predominantly enforce on counseling as it
has made me reach in one of the good university in States n all
credit goes to Avinash Sir .
Punctuality of FACT – is one thing I appreciate
the most ..in FACT .They are with us in every situation and
willing to solve any problems We students come across.
Discipline of FACT – also made me reach to my
target successfully .Every staff is so disciplined that one
doesn’t need to be apprehensive about anything.
Most important of all comes the bonding of
students and staff in FACT. Every person from staff is available
to us and help us. Also students who are passed out from FACT
are the equally helpful to new students from FACT. This depicts
FACT co-ordination with every student, ex-students, present
students as well as future students.
We can’t thank FACT enough this testimonial is
just a token of appreciation to all their work and hardships
Fact as an institution has trained and guided me through all the
steps to obtain admission in the University of Louisville.
Avinash sir helped me with my math for my GRE in which thanks to
his guidance i got a 750. He then helped me short list
universities which would help me with my research interests and
get admission into a good program. All this was happening during
my MSc exams but I was not so stressed as I knew I could
completely rely on his guidance, he answered all my hundreds of
questions patiently and assured me I was on the right path.
Kiran ma'am, Katre ma'am and Raghavan sir were also there for me
whenever i needed their expertise, they always encouraged me and
prepared me for everything all the way from my exam to my visa
preparation. They truely do a thorough job. I believe Fact
helped me get admission here and for that I am glad I took
admission in Fact as they truely have a dedicated staff.
All these years I
had dreamed of studying in the US and all I want to say is that
today when I am about to leave for the States its all because
of F.A.C.T that my dream has come true. I worked really hard to
achieve and get into a good university and F.A.C.T worked even
harder to get me into one of the best. I am really overwhelmed
about the experience I had with F.A.C.T. Mr. Avinash Veer was my
counselor and I must say that its because of his efforts and
ideas, his help that made me so comfortable being in any
situation be it the application process or selecting the
universities or ultimately finalizing one. There have been
instances in the admission process where I felt that it was
actually worth it enrolling into the F.A.C.T family, especially
after I got my Visa approved not only because Avinash prepared
me well for the Visa interview but also because they were like a
family to me. They were with me through out the process and the
best part about being with them was whenever I thought I had
some trouble dealing with things in the application process,
Avinash and the rest of the F.A.C.T members were always there
with the solution.
Right from my GRE preparation and TOEFL with Bina Madam and
Navin Sir to the File assembling with Kiran Madam to the
orientation overviews and guidance of Katre madam and of course
my Counselor and friend Avinash Veer, all have been special and
different with their conduct. I would like to thank all of them
for being a part of this important step of my life. Its really
been special being a part of F.A.C.T and the journey continues
as I will always be a F.A.C.T member.
Thank you F.A.C.T once again for always being
there for me.
To start off with, I would first
like to thank my dear friend Dhaval for suggesting me to join
FACT when I was thinking of studying abroad. Now, when I m about
to fly, joining FACT has proved to be one of the wisest
decisions. Apart from help in obvious things like university
selection, application process, recos, SOPs, and Visa process,
one more precious thing I got from FACT is friendship with
Avinash Sir. Yes, he is more like a friend rather than career
advisor, as his amiable behaviour did never let us think of him
as a counselor. For me and my friends, FACT is all about Avinash
Sir. No need to talk about his manifest characteristics like
ingenuity, intrepidity about expressing opinions, etc.
One thing, which I initially
thought, was not-so-fair, but now I appreciate, is, while
application process, he never spoon-fed us with the information
we required. On the other hand, he suggested us to find it on
our own. He never filled application forms for us (which, I
know, he did for some crybabies..:D), rather told us to do
things on our own. This, not only helped us in knowing every
damn thing about all universities we applied, but also gave us a
lot of confidence, we should develop, about the universities,
before applying. So, its not direct information, but the way of
finding it, is what Avinash Sir and FACT have taught me.
Thank you FACT and especially
Avinash Sir, for your efforts for getting me into good
University and would like to wish best of luck for future
What began as a
speculative shot at post graduate studies has snowballed into a
dream come true opportunity for me. In a country of billions
where IT is the bread and butter of majority of the engineers, I
knew it would be hard for me to develop a reputation without any
specialised knowledge. And despite these concerns, post
graduation was not easy. Even a GATE score of 90+ percentile was
not good enough. So, I gave GRE, without any concrete plans. And
yet, the team at FACT knew the future better than me. Even
before I gave my GRE they were confident of me gettin into a
world-class institute. And post-GRE the belief grew stronger.
There were doubts and tensions throughout, but Avinash sir with
his complete understanding of the entire process guided me and
most importantly helped me build my confidence to be worthy of
thse high ranked institutes.
FACT has made me accomplish a dream which had seemed so
impossible. I have made it to an Ivy league university for post
graduation after watching myself fail to get into a decent
engineering college for undergraduate studies. It was the shrewd
guidance and encouragement of Avinash sir and the entire team
that enabled me to dream big and achieve bigger. I hope they
continue encouraging students and bringing the very best out of
I made sure I had
checked out all the institutions that guide students in GRE,
TOEFL and the admission counseling etc. I enrolled myself into
FACT because the staff was more personal and that they had no
fixed timings for classes. Beena mam made sure I was always
revising my Barron's words and was taking regular online and
computer based tests. After my GRE, I met Avinash sir, who in
the beginning used to scare me to hell because he is so direct
and open while interacting. It was he who helped me in my
admission procedure. Initially it was hard as I was made to do
most of the hard work leaving me frustrated. I realized later
that since Avinash sir made me do most of the hard work I was a
much more confident student. He was ACTUALLY preparing me facing
the difficulties I would come across when I'd be alone in the
US. Last but not the least I would always remember Kiran mam for
her warmth and affection I felt every time I met her.
Surprisingly, Sunil sir's statements are still fresh in my mind
as if it were yesterday. He'll always keep inspiring me. In
FACT, not only did I find mentors but also my extended family !
My association with
FACT dates back to 2009 when I saw an ad in the newspaper
and attended a FACT seminar. That's when I realized
the importance of getting QUALITY education from a reputed
university. I immediately enrolled myself into the institute.
Since then, my career has taken a turn for the better and I've
never looked back. All the faculty members of FACT are
experienced and very friendly. They are ready to give advice any
day of the week whether it is on the phone, in person or online.
They also helped me clear all the doubts I had about the
application process. FACT's SAT and TOEFL coaching
is exhaustive and excellent while the visa question-answer
session is realistic and awesome. Kudos to the FACT team
who helped me right from
preparing for the SAT to packing my bags! Joining this institute
was simply the best thing that ever happened to me. Thank you
FACT for making my dream of studying in the USA come true!
20 months ago Katre
Madam unfolded to me the wonders(!) of education in USA and I
joined FACT to touch these wonders. The path to do so was to
score well in SAT and TOEFL and Bina Madam was a
friend-cum-philosopher throughout that path. Then after that I
got acquainted with a counselor who never seemed to counsel you
- Sir Avinash Veer :D You talk, you share some laughs and then
you leave the desk with a memory and smile .. and then a moment
later it strikes you that you just got counseled !!
Now, as i depart
from India,I have two great mementos from FACT - A much wanted
scholarship and a most possessed memory !! ^_^
I Joined FACT with very intent of
getting a professional counselling
regarding which univs to shorlist and which to apply. The very
first interaction and a few subsequent interaction between me
and avinash sir were like i was very tensed and Sir was cool.
but later in the due course i started to relax and sir became a
little worried about me. The actual concern about me that sir
had i came to know when i had got to know from one the FACT
studnets who worked with me, She told me sir had kiddingly told
me not to come for not many sessions of visa counselling and i
became so confident staying with sir that only one of its kind
worked out for me. Even i realised that the kind of bonding that
i developed with avinash sir was not like a counsellor and a
student but as a family member. The best part or the USP of FACT
i feel is the pre-departure orientation. It in actual sense
broadens your vision and makes you focus onto your goals. there
i could find not only current flying students but the students
who had flown down to India on their vacation to share their
experiences with the newbees like us. and to inspire the
following batch students.
I wish all the very
best to all the fellow students and a word of advice to one who
have or are in thought to enroll @FACT trust yourselves and
evrything else will be taken care by FACT.
The experience with
FACT was awesome. I still remember the day I gave my GRE and
received a very low score after which admission to MS seemed an
impossible thing . I thought I would have to reappear the exam
due to such low score but a friend of mine suggested to consult
Avinash sir once before taking any decision. And that was a
turning point I had. FACT team guided me throughout the process
from selecting Universities to writing SOP & LOR's to sending
files. FACT made the entire process a cakewalk. And the result I
got admission in a dream University of mine.
They say there is difference
between knowing the path and walking the path. In this world
almost everyone knows the path leading their respective
destinies but only few end up reaching there because walking the
path is much more difficult and entirely different kind of
experience than just knowing the same. I sincerely thank Sunil
sir, all the FACT faculty & consultant/big
brother/friend/guide/(and many more relations to add…) Avinash
sir who made path to my destiny look so simple that I just felt
like walking in a park.
After reaching this point when I
look back and think, I realize that it was so not possible for
me to achieve my dream without blend of their expertise in the
domain of foreign education. I wish FACT the best to continue
the good work of guiding students to realize and achieve their
dreams & transforming them into extraordinary scholars.
My association with
FACT goes back to the month of August 2010.I entered the FACT
office with little other than a strong desire to pursue my
higher studies in USA. From the moment I spoke to Katre Ma’m
that rainy evening in August, I knew I was in expert hands.
Right from my GRE preparations up until my VISA interview my
counselors and teachers guided me at each and every step of the
application process. Attending Beena Ma’m, Naveen Sir and
Vaibhav Sir’s lectures made me believe I can do well on the GRE.
After my exams I was in the adept hands of Avinash Sir who
meticulously looked into every big and small detail constituting
the application process. A big thank you to Avinash Sir!! The
preciseness of Katre Ma’m, the smiling face of Kiran Ma’m, the
thorough knowledge of Avinash sir as well as the expert guidance
of the teachers is what makes FACT so special. It is much more
than a professional entity…it is an extended family!
Thank you FACT for
playing such a significant role in helping me chase my dreams!!
It gives me pleasure to write this testimonial for FACT who made
my journey towards MS a smooth and satisfying one. I remember I
joined FACT on the day I took GRE. One of my friends gave me
their reference. My GRE score was fairly satisfactory (I didn’t
feel the same though). I was really upset, confused and lots of
skeptic stuff going through my mind. That time I went to FACT
and I personally spoke to Avinash sir and Kiran ma’am. It all
started with listing out the universities, online applications,
mailing packets and all that stuff. Avinash sir really helped me
a lot. He worked on my SOP, drafted my recommendations
beautifully. Then after all admits and I20s stuff, the main task
was getting visa. FACT had organized one seminar where Sunil sir
explained all the minute details about the visa procedures. I
was tensed about the visa interview. But Avinash sir really
helped me a lot to prepare for it.
Now after 6-7 months of my association with FACT I feel, that
was one day when I was skeptical about my admissions, and today
I have made it to UT, Dallas and got my visa as well. I remember
every single time me asking Avinash sir whether my score was
competitive enough and he would just reply “arey bindaas,
tension nako gheus re.”
I would like to say a few things about Avinash sir. He is a
rOcKstar, very intelligent, helpful, humorous (at times
sarcastic :D), criticized me a lot for my stupid laid back
attitude. I would get angry (never showed though :D). But today
I realize that was all for my benefit. I would like to make this
very clear to everyone reading this, never doubt Avinash sir’s
judgement. I did that and was proved wrong every single time.
Just blindly trust him guys. Like I said he simply rOcKs.
Me and my parents’ whole heartedly thank the entire FACT team
for guiding me through this complete process. And a very special
thanks to Avinash sir.
Lastly I would say, that was a day when I would visit FACT
once in a blue moon, and this is the day when all my procedures
are complete, I still need a reason to visit FACT every single
day. That’s a kind of attachment. I guess this is what they mean
when they say FACT FAMILY.
It was my
childhood dream to pursue my education in the US. When I got to
know of FACT, I immediately took an appointment to meet Sunil
Sir and he guided me to pursue my Bachelors in US. As I started
my journey to pursue my dream, it seemed like a difficult and
long task. But I believed in my counselors and took the leap.
I stand with the air ticket in my hand, it seems like I have
achieved my dreams…and this is not only because of my hardwork
and perseverance, but also because of…..
Sir: my favourite counselor who made my dreams come true by
being my teacher and my guide.
He is a
true guide, who realizes the potential within each student and
motivates each one to achieve their dreams.
Ma’am: a very friendly counselor who prepared me for my SAT
and TOEFL exam and also guided me for my admission process and
Sir: a true counselor, dedicated to his work…he helped me
throughout my admission process, visa interview!!!
thanks to Sunil Sir, Hiren sir and Shraddha ma’am who were
always there to attend to my calls and queries at any time of
Sir: a very knowledgable counselor. Thank you for helping me
decide on my universities
Sir: a very jovial teacher who me quants and application of
shortcuts for better results in the exam
Ma’am: for helping me to prepare for the VISA interview
Due to the
help and guidance of all my counselors, I could clear my SAT and
TOEFL with good scores, got admits from 6 universities and got
my VISA in the first attempt itself!!!
heartfelt thanks to all the FACT members for your constant
guidance and support!
From a clueless truant to waiting in the wings of The University
of Michigan : Rackham Graduate School - I am indebted to Katre
Madam for making me believe and initiating me at FACT. Having
given up on instruction and examination, I must admit I caused a
bit of distress. But special thanks to Beena Madam for her
patience and Vaibhav Sir for his unassuming yet efficacious
instruction that allowed me to surpass (hell! - stun) myself
with 1410 and 107 as my test scores. Not to forget Sunil Sir's
online lectures - things just don't get any more convenient. In
Avinash Sir I have made a friend for life. His knowledge and
experience is as enviable as it is exploitable. A special
mention here of the VISA prep conducted by Avinash Sir and Katre
Madam - worth its weight in gold!
I wish FACT all the very best for the years to come. Once again
- THANK YOU.
Its like Dream Come
true. And to make my dream a reality FACT has played a very
important part. Starting from encouraging us or making our
process simpler and joy able. Start from choosing University and
application process, FACT made the path simple and easy. For
this I specially thank Avinash sir and Kiran Mam for their help
and make my dream a reality. Approaching FACT was my first step
towards US. I thank FACT for this and wish All The Best For
their success .
It’s not about the words. It’s about the feelings behind the
My life was in shambles when I first came to FACT. No resources
on me, all I had was the promise to work hard and a dream to
study and make it big. Shraddha just smiled and said “ho
jayega”..I had no idea how it would happen, I just believed her.
Riten and Shraddha went out of their way to adjust lecture
timings to suit my job(s). In a month’s time, they got me
prepared. Everyone at FACT was happier than me hearing my GRE
And then came the applications. Hiren would be exasperated with
my trivial doubts, but I have to admit, he has been available
for me 24*7. Whether it was with the credit card or replying to
universities, he has walked the extra mile so that I would do it
right. Avi sir was a genie, knowing exactly what universities I
needed to apply to. Never having met me, the SOP was simply spot
on. He and Katre ma’am said “is ladki ka visa tayari perfect
chahiye”. Kiran ma’am played behind the scenes, helping with the
documents, ironing out every minor hitch coming my way. And to
top it all, Shah sir.. He was my MAMA..
Me going to USA was not just my aspiration anymore, it was their
dream. FACT has worked like a candle burning on both ends to
help me be what I want to be. I have not only found some life
lasting friendships, I have found a family here. I feel like I
am their most special student. I may not miss my mother’s ‘phulkas’,
but surely this care and concern is what I am going to pine for.
THANK YOU FACT….
Some very dear
friends had recommended me to join FACT, and I am so glad I took
their advice. FACT was extremely helpful throughout the process
of application and choosing universities. I used to take most of
my problems and doubts to Avinash Sir. So, for me, he was like
the face that represented FACT. Avinash Sir is one of the most
colorful personalities that I have ever came across ! His
witticism and anecdotes will always keep you upbeat, even on
dullest of days !
I would like to
share a vivid memory I have about something Avinash Sir said, I
had just received 3 rejects in a row and my accepts column still
indicated a fearful naught ! I went to see Avinash Sir to
discuss how tensed I was at that time, and all he had to say was
" as long as I am smiling, you do not have a single reason to
worry ! ". I felt reasonably calm after hearing that from him.
On the same night that day, I got first admit ! It was then that
I realized that Avinash Sir's experiences and insights are
second to none. If you do not want to take my word for it, check
his facebook profile and you will comprehend his experience of
successfully sending students to the US.
The entire FACT
team has a big part in making the process of going to USA for
education easy and reducing the anxiety related to it. I would
like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the entire team and
Avinash Sir in particular !
Thank You FACT ! !
Immediately after my GRE got
done, I heard a lot of negative things "arey acche university
main milna mushkil hai","application process is too tough, you
won't be able to manage it in your final year(BE)","visa gets
rejected very often" and so on.Taking all these doubts , I
stepped into FACT and since then ,the journey has been one
rocking ride !!! Right from the application process to the visa
stuff, I was completely supported by the FACT team and in
particular, Avinash Sir. Those "meetings" with him,jokes and all
included, are something I will cherish all my life.
As long as you are associated with FACT, going to a bad
university is not an option at all.Their slogan says "Bindaas
I say"Aankh band karke Bindaas FACT join kar mamu, life aage set
hai.....". Avinash Sir roxxx \m/
Today, with the
visa and the ticket for USA in hand and counting the days
remaining for departure, it feels like the entire application
process has been a cake-walk. I would like to mention that it
would not have been this easy but for FACT.
When you are at
FACT it just feels like being at home. Very friendly, helpful
and jolly people but at the same time very focussed. They are
more than just your career counsellors. The best part of being a
FACT student is that you are never spoon-fed and you know how
the process goes right from choosing the universities till you
leave for US and further. One can ask for help anytime and the
doubts are solved at the earliest.
Kiran madam and Katre madam have been very supportive and
helpful throughout the application process. Last but not the
least Sunil Shah sir has truly been an inspiration and an icon
for each one of us at FACT.
I would like to
take this opportunity to thank all these mentors at FACT for
making this process very easy and a fun experience. Thanks a
The entire Journey
of FACT has been awesome....n i know that this FACT team will be
with me during my future career also.
This is the trust I have developed for FACT...After getting a
decent GRE score, Sunil Shah Sir showed me the direction to move
and increased my confidence....and getting into UFL..one of the
best University..would not have been possible without the Legend
- Avinash Veer :)
So guys, once you join FACT... I assure you that you are into
safe hands..and remember only 1 thing..i.e., to do as the Legend
says :-) ENJOY!!!!
I still remember that day...sitting
in Sunil Sir's cabin
with tears in my eyes:(...n Sunil Sir,baba n Kiran Maam staring
at me blankly...Yes I had got a bit emotional with a feeling
that maybe whatever I had planned for
myself professionally would soon go in for a toss...I had just
started walking:P(had been on bed rest for 2 months with muscle
tear in my leg)....and was coping with the recovery....I had
lost crucial 2 months during which I had planned to study for my
GRE...but obviously that had not happened and I was running out
on time....explaining all this in my first meeting,I was
expecting some sympathy and consoling...the way
it generally happens when u see someone with tears in their
eyes....but none of this happend... in fact we just had a casual
talk.....and Sir made me realize that if you dream about
sumthing in life then believe in yourself and in your
dreams....WOW....that gave a depressed physiotherapist some confidence(let
me tell you,I needed sumthing like this badly at that
point)...By the time i took his leave I knew what I wanted 2
acheive and was all ready to put in efforts...I started with the
GRE training and barely had 30 days 2 go 4 the exam....thru all
this it was always nice 2 meet Kiran Maam...eversmiling:):)...she
would take personal efforts to know about our preparations and
would always have some suggestions and advises...thank you Maam:)...I
never met Sunil Sir personaaly after my first meeting but would
meet him online for the analytical writing sessions that he
would conduct with students from all branches participating in
the discussions...those sessions were really interesting and
fun...next whom I met at FACT was Avinash Sir..(initially when I
used to see him at office...I used 2 always wonder what he must
be upto staring n constantly working on his chotu lappy....even
on sundays:P:P...lol)....but now he's more like a friend than
a counselor...he will always invariably answer even your sillest
doubts:)...guiding thru the admisiion procedures,helping with
the SOP,reco,VISA procedures,interviews...everything...at the
back of my mind it used to be like Avinash sir hai naa..toh ho
jayega..:).it was always a friendly atmosphere where we cud just
talk,laugh on sum funny things going around,ask or argue and
everything was appreciated...even doubts from parents would be
taken up and there would always be timely communication with
parents either helping them thru the visa papers or discussing
about what wud be the best option for the child...Sir I still
remember our meetings..yourself,me and baba(n how much u wud
njoy those meetings:P:P....lol)...and yaa..i will always be
grateful to you for saving me from the Banglore torture...hehehe:)...also
during all these discussions Katre Madam wud always have sum
helpful inputs...Thank you Maam...n a big Thank you to Avinash
Sir...infact it was a amazing experience to be a part of the
FACT family....and I would like to thank all associated with the
FACT team...I know one thing for sure that i have FACT who will
guide me not only at this stage but throughout my
life....well...the JOURNEY has just started and I am happy that
it is with all your guidance and wishes:):)
Thank you FACT:)
To sum up whole
journey from a beginner to finally departing to US in such
scarce words is impossible, but still all this began with the
seminar arranged by FACT in Pendharkar College, Dombivli. I was
in third year of Mechanical Engg., and then all sorts of primary
questions and myths regarding costs and scholarships were
resolved. The best thing which happened in all this process was
joining FACT and meeting Avinash Sir. He is more like a close
friend then a mere guide. He is most supportive and knows all
the solutions to our queries.His knowledge regarding
universities is unparalleled!!! The coaching of Beena mam will
have an impact on me always, she is strict and knows how to take
out best from the students.If I would have done something good
in vocab, its all because of Beena mam.
Katre mam always gives a motherly advice! And Kiran mam is
the most convincing person i hav ever met. The online tests at
FACT are helpful to students.The most important tip I would like
to give to all future students is just keep your faith in FACT
and moreover once you are enrolled and once you are with Avinash
Sir then consider yourself to be in safe hands!!!
I had enrolled for
FACT counselling and found out that the best thing about FACT is
their efforts to make things as simple and uncomplicated for us
as possible. In fact they make the process of your admission so
simple for us, that we sometimes foolishly tend to believe that
it is a cakewalk. But is their guidance that makes it easy.
I blindly trusted
their opinions and have got extremely good results. They give
personal attention to each student with each profile is assessed
differently. Especially efforts taken by Avinash Veer sir are
what that I appreciate the most.
They do not teach
you how to walk (it should be done by us), but they hold your
hand so that you do not stumble and get lost during while doing
the application process. This is what does helps you develop
your confidence and set out for the actual MS journey with full
this counselling from others. FACT does not make you weak and
dependent by spoon-feeding you during application process, but
changes you into confident individual with an ability to decide
what is best for himself.
I say it from
personal experience..FACT rocks..!!
Its been a pleasure
having Avinash Sir guide me for admissions. The BEST thing is,
he is available almost all 24/7 online on gtalk or facebook, so
you can just shoot him a doubt and it will be answered almost
quickly. Inspite of him being very busy, your mail will be
answered on time, within 48 hrs max, and your calls if missed
will be returned back too on the same day. I remember him
clearing a problem at around 12 at night when I was in a state
of panic. Also he'll give you actionable facts that will make
you take quick and clear decisions according to your needs.
My journey with
FACT has been really comfortable. Every time I walked into that
office, I knew I would see familiar faces- faces that cared
enough about me and not just my scores. I think FACT really
helped me take ownership of my studies and application. I was
very well assisted in my essays and if I worked my 100%, I can
say with certainty that Avinash Sir worked his 200% as well.
I have been recommending FACT to others for the same reason- own
up to your life, shape your future education and take the expert
guidance on your way.. I really like this approach that FACT
takes - it really helped me understand myself..
FACT is also a place where I made friends for life- not so much
with my peers but more so with my professors, counselors and
others who always welcome you with warm smile and a warmer
heart, no matter what the problem is..
FACT has also tried to customize its services for each student
and that again has been a blessing. Every time my test scores
were not up to the mark or my essays didnt reflect my best work,
I was gently reminded to keep pushing myself- you learn a lot
about excellence when the person you are working with, only
works for excellence. I learned that by working with Avinash
I will truly miss Sir because of the deep respect I have for him
and the earnest concern he has for me.. the 'FACT' is that I am
not just going to do my MBA with a 50% scholarship, I am going
there after making friends for life and having a really
wonderful time at FACT.
I was in my 3rd
year of Bachelor of Pharmacy, and I had absolutely no idea of
what was I going to do after I am done with my degree. It was
then when I heard about FACT seminar for guidance in studies
abroad. I took an effort of attending it- and that is what, I
think, has made my life..! I am here in the US pursuing a PhD
course- all thanks to FACT.
Really, after the
inspiring seminar by Sunil Sir, I almost made up my mind of
applying to the US universities for post graduation. Not just
me, but even my parents thought it would be great to do post-
graduation from a foreign university. Very enthusiastically, I
began all the preparations. Back then, I had no idea of what all
had to be done. When I met Sunil Sir personally, I got to know
about the long and tedious procedure for application to the
universities which discouraged me a little bit; but Sunil Sir
reassured that everything would be done smoothly and on time-
and I made up my mind.
Truly my experience
with FACT is great ! Avinash Sir was going to be guiding me with
my application process- and that was the BEST I could have asked
for! He took care of all my doubts and fears and was there with
me throughout my application work. And, as promised by FACT, I
had results in front of me! I finally landed in the US. How much
ever I thank the entire FACT team is less. But still, thankyou
FACT for making this Big dream a reality ! CHEERS..!!!
The guidance I have
received at FACT has been invaluable. Without Avinash Sir's
help, I would never have gotten in to such a good college for my
MS. They are very organized and take the careers of the students
very seriously. And after all this, all of us form one big
family who are always there to look out for each other. FACT has
been a rewarding experience and a stepping stone for my future.
FACT classes made
my journey much too easy than I ever thought it would be. There
was a point where I lost all hopes, but yet i was given a
helping hand and now I am at the most satisfying state with
admission into good university with complete funding. All this
was possible due to Mr. Avinash Veer, believe it or not, He is
always right and knows much more than us or what we can imagine,
so be honest to him , that would help only you. I would miss
visiting FACT every now and then for most minor queries! I made
the right choice.
If you reading
this....you know what to do :) !
I joined FACT for
Visa guidance and I must say I made a right decision. Avinash
sir and Katre Mam gave me the best knowledge and training that
was essential for getting my visa approved. FACT has a very
friendly environment to start with any discussions and ask any
doubts. Helping each of its student achieve their goal is the
only aim of FACT and I was one of the blessed students to get
help from such professionals who took me one step closer to my
dream. Thank you FACT.
I still remember the day when I came at FACT Thane head office
Completely muddled and puzzled and I was skeptic whether I
could pursue MS in studies in US or not ...
Totally ambiguous but ambitious about my future it was avinash
sir who cleared my every doubt throughout the process ...
Rather he made myself strong enough to face any doubt and
accomplish it ....
He always used to say "Mi jar tuza pratek doubt clear kela tar
tula mazi savaya padun jail ....Mag nantar US la gelya nanatar
tu kasa handle karshil.....tyapeksha jar ata alela doubt mi jar
tula solve karayala lavala(obviously under his guidance ! )
......tar nanatar tuch capable houn jashil ...Mi FAKT tula US
university la admission deun tula sodun denar nahi...tar tithe
gelyavar pan kahihi face karaayala tayari tuzi mi atach karun
denar ahe !"
During my admission procedure due to some credit card problems
my $420 of application was detained with two universities ...
When I run to Avinash sir to solve this convoluted situation; he
just causally ordered "TWO CHAIS" and told me how to solve that
I emailed and phoned university admission officer and accountant
as per sir's guidance . His Non- Spoon feeding but helping
nature helped me not only to redeem $420 but also waive off $165
of application fees of two university.
Best fact @ the FACT is that it provides personal guidance to
every student at any time (obviously during office hours though
they never bother calling them in midnight in case of
Not like other institutes where you have to take appointment for
a single frivolous doubt !
If you are associated with FACT, I can assure you will
definitely get good university in the United States.
I still hallucinate how I used to gave speaking test for TOEFL
before BEENA madam.
Study atmosphere of FACT is very good that I cleared my TOEFL
exam just studying for 10 days .
VISA process is most important part . Be it getting documents
for VISA or mock interviews : Avinash Sir , Katre Madam and
Kiran madam always there to lend me a helping hand .
Specially a motivational speech Katre Madam before VISA
I glad that I am a part of FACT family now !
Thank you every one at FACT,
Special thanks to Avinash Sir , Katre Madam and Kiran Maam :)
I had a great
experience at fact. And I owe most of my success to their
guidance. They are very accommodating and encourage queries and
they have an unabashed positive attitude, which is very
reassuring. THANK YOU FACT FOR EVERYTHING.
FACT has been
proved helpful right from choosing universities for my
specialization, applying to these universities, selecting the
best admit considering different facts, VISA application
procedure and of course, preparation for departure to USA.
Avinash sir and Kiran ma'am guided me throughout these lengthy
process. I have seen them taking so much efforts for each
individual. Joining FACT was an awesome experience. Journey with
FACT is not only till one gets into USA but it continues during
graduation and even after that because FACT is like a family
which would stand by us throughout. And I am proud to say that I
am a member of this wonderful family.
I gave my
GRE just because some of my friends were giving it in college,
ended up with a decent score, scared to apply for universities
from which I would probably get rejects, then the VISA
While I was
working I realized I need to grow, at the same time was carrying
the fright. I approached the brilliant, tolerant & statistical
team of FACT. They guided me so well! right from my universities
selection to SOP's, reco's, finances, etc. We targeted
universities which had extensive courses in my field of
interest. Finally, I got admits from all the universities I
applied. Moreover their VISA counselling is so dedicated and
well planned that at the consulate everything was a cake walk!
exactly knows whats classwork & homework which got me into NEU,
Boston, MA where I will get the maximum exposure in the field of
CS & flourish internationally!
All I would
say is "FACT ko laga dala toh life jingalala:P "
lot FACT! owe you all the success :-)
I planned my MS, 2
years after my graduation and FACT helped me to execute the plan
end to end. I seriously believe, FACT has the best faculties to
help one to secure admission in foreign university. I would like
to appreciate Avinash sir, who made the process look very easy.
He also gave me the extra time by considering my hectic work
schedule. I wish all success to the FACT team.
Thanks a lot for
all your help. I loved FACT for all its help and guidance .I
hope you keep on doing the same for many more. I wanted to talk
to you personally but it was so sudden and now I am in New York
in the middle of a semester. Cornell is a good school and the
course is amazing. Thanks a lot again.
I have recently realized that
finally my dreams have come true. I had this dream to study
abroad and had started working on it one and a half years ago. I
came to FACT a week before my GRE exams & had my vision more
broadened and moral doubled. I met this excellent personality
Mr. Sunil Shah. I was really fascinated by his office. I was
disappointed by my GRE score but Avinash Sir showed me the
silver lining in that dark shocked mind of mine. I held my total
belief in Avinash Sir since that day. I put all my questions and
got my answers. Sir really sorry for those silly ones. Avinash
sir my true inspiration was your statement "Tujhe to ab
helicopter hi ayega MIT se lejaneke liye". I had an excellent
time preparing for my applications. I thank Avinash sir from the
bottom of my heart for finding this beautiful university. I know
a lot might hear it for the first time but it just made a place
in my heart since the day I applied to it. I am a very contented
person wrt to counselling, not because it was just GRE/GMAT
counselling but it has changed my career, my future. I sincerely
thank the fact team Sunil sir, Kiran maam, Katre maam and
personally a special thanks to Avinash sir. The pre-departure
party was the best and the happiest ending to my personal
correspondence with FACT.
I am gonna miss you all.
I came to know of
FACT through a short seminar I attended at Patrakar Bhavan. I
immediately signed up for the admissions counseling after the
seminar. Sunil sir gave an overview of the whole education
process in the US. What impressed me the most was the university
selection process that he believed in- going through the
university websites, checking out the research labs and
projects, going through the faculty pages- which helps you get a
better idea of the university rather than relying on the
rankings. When I went for the counselling, that is what Ajay sir
did too. He gave me a list of universities separated into groups
based on the difficulty of getting an admit from them, and the
final selection was done by me out of the list. So, I studied
each university and then made an informed decision about where
to apply, after talking with Ajay sir about each university. The
visa guidance was very good too, as the complete list of
documents to be prepared was given along with the exact
financial requirements to prepare for. So the visa process went
very smoothly and easily- without any stress. I am grateful to
Ajay sir for the very specific instructions that he gave about
the application process, so there's no room for any doubt.
Ashwini is also always cheerful, always helpful anytime you go
to the office. So its fun to go to the office with any questions
that you might have. Thank you very much to Ajay sir, Ashwini
and the whole FACT team for a very wonderful experience!

"...Going to USA
for Masters." We hear this around us all the time. "..My aunt's
sister's daughter went to USA last year and she did this..."
Most of the time I was lost trying to figure out who they are
talking about exactly and could hardly concentrates on what they
did last year which was so brilliant.
I dealt with my
share of free advices which frankly nothing more than confused
me further. The entire process of application is daunting but
when you have just a single reliable source of information,
everything falls into place. We are all capable of achieving
what's in store for us and have to walk the way alone. But we
need a roadmap. And FACT gave that to me. I walked the way
myself- proud and happy- with that road map in my hand.
I went to FACT
Thane after my GRE so I wont be in a position to talk about how
they coach for the tests (although I have heard a lot of good
reviews about the same) But I was about to take my TOEFL in
three days when I joined FACT and Raghvan sir gave me a set of
TOEFL CDs to practice and offered to help me in anything I
needed for the same. I was completely surprised by this gesture.
It’s very rare that someone offers valid help without being
asked for it or being charged for it. And it touched me. Right
then I realized that this place wasn't like the other corporate
places which claim to be counselors. These guys in their warm
cozy Thane office were counselors as they should be.
FACT helped me with
my recos, SOPs, college lists, mock visa interview and the
likes. Everything the counselors anywhere else would do. But
there's more to FACT than just that. Avinash Sir will spend time
with you discussing anything from the list of Universities to
the list of places he wished to visit coming monsoon. He seems
like the favorite professor we all had back in college who would
sit with us on the desks and chat before the lecture began. But
Avinash sir is a tyrant. Well, not exactly. But he can be brutal
to the point where you sit up in your chair and grow up!
I remember calling
Avinash Sir initially with the stupidest, tiniest doubts I had
about, well about anything. He cleared all the doubts. But soon
my calls had become scarce and that’s when I realized that I
wasn't intimidated by the application process anymore. I could
look at all the mails I received from all the universities I had
applied to and be able to read through it without
hyperventilating. I could click on that reply button and be sure
that I wasn't going to mess up. And that I think is priceless,
that confidence that everything's going all right.
Everyone at FACT is
helpful and brilliantly well humoured. It’s amazing how much a
witty comment means to you when you're waiting to hear back from
your dream university. All in all I would say that no matter how
many words you have mastered for your GRE I bet you that you
will understand the true meaning of the word 'amicable' when you
step into FACT's office.
