I 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 every student it different way.
The most imp. thing is, "Everything u can think in your wildest dreams [about gng for
MS off course ;) ], THEY HAVE AN ANSWER TO IT, They just have it, (cud nt put
this in simpler words n 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 :)
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
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.
Furthermore, FACT 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.
Moreover, the 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 towards my career. I am sure FACT will continue
developing the careers of students in the future too.
- Thank you
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
Finally, the credit goes to Sunil Shah Sir who created this FACT Family and I am glad
to be treated as a part of it.
P.S.:- Avinash Sir, U Rock…
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 kept telling my mom
was," Atleast I could do my internship abroad" because my professors and known
doctors gave all knowledge & tempted me about medical studies abroad but said
nothing about "HOW". What I wanted to know was what kind of entrance exams, which
country, which university and a class that could guide me through the entire process.
Surprisingly true that ad on ET by F.A.C.T about seminar claimed that F.A.C.T has all
answers. So I immediately decided to check it out with my 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 such confidence
and with evidence you tend to believe! And the person I am talking is none other than
Sunil Sir! Then after all discussions and following Sunil Sir's advise got enrolled in
F.A.C.T for BS in pre-medicine & got started with Shraddha Di( my trainer). My mom
puts it right! “Day or night.. Even for the slightest doubt without any second thought…I
would pick up my cell & call her” Anyone would get annoyed…but she answered each
query with that same smile! that’s Shrtaddha Di! I even remember the frantic calls I
have made to Sunil Sir & short notice appointments. But he was always there to sooth
my nerves & also scold me! Avinash sir helped my confused mind decide the right
university and Katre Madam and Ragvan Sir guided me well through the 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!!!
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 dream.

overwhelming and often daunting task. However Avinash sir made it very easy for

5 Tips For Studying In USA
1. An average educational
record (so far) does not mean
that your U.S Dreams are
over. Unlike the Indian
Education system which is very
marks-driven, The U.S education
system takes a broader view of
the candidate. Thus you may
have an average academic
record; however your success in
a national or state level sports
championship will be viewed in
very positive light. If it is atleast
1-2 years before your will begin
your application, it is strongly
suggested that you become a
member of the nearby Rotaract
or Toastmasters Club. Your
participation with such globally
renowned organizations also
adds to your profile. Same goes
for any training that you might
have received from the National
Cadet Corps (NCC). Among all
the students studying in USA, the
ones that are able to manage
many responsibilities/tasks at a
given time are the ones who
succeed that most.
2. Your GRE/GMAT/SAT
Score is equally if not more
important than your
educational records. Yet
another solution to academic
records that are not too great -
cover up for those in your
GRE/GMAT/SAT exam! While it
is impossible to change the past,
our present can eliminate the
challenge in a big way. And
here’s why: U.S Universities
often rely more on your
GRE/GMAT/SAT scores since
these exams are administered
by American organizations.
Since the American education
system differs from the system
in India, it is the natural tendency
of American admissions officers
to rely on test scores rather than
previous academic records
alone! This brings a note of
caution to those students who
have done well during studies
and with dreams of studying in
USA- Please continue with the
same track record in your
3. Your Application
Documents will be read! Yes!
Do not downplay the importance
of your Admission Essays,
Statement of Purpose (SOP)
and recommendation letters.
Ensure that these are well-
written and present a clear
picture of your career plans.
