MS in School Counselling, Pennsylvania State University

By enrolling with Yashna I was able to select my universities in a quick and efficient manner. They were able to provide the right guidance at every stage. All my queries were answered very promptly. Love the openness and approachable atmosphere they have cultivated.

Carnegie Mellon University, MS Management Information Systems

I have secured an admit for Management of Information Systems with all universities I applied to, namely Carnegie Mellon University, Kelley School of Business, University of Indiana-Bloomington, Eller College of Management, University of Arizona and Syracuse University. I would like to thank Yashna Trust for the constant support in making this possible.

At Yashna Trust, the adviser I worked with was incredibly supportive from the beginning. From my first acceptance to my rejection from Harvard, my adviser was always there for me. I couldn't have chosen a better mentor if I tried!

The experience with Yashna Trust was truly remarkable, and they guided me in the college application process very well. They also motivated and encouraged me to write a successful college essay. The orientations were really helpful and informative. My adviser turned out to be a very good mentor as well. Overall the experience with Yashna Trust was amazing.

University of Oklahoma, MS in Mechanical Engineering

I arrived at my University last night and all is well here. I met my grad adviser and it seems like I have made a good impression on them already with my application – and a million thanks to you for helping me out there. The Indian Student Association here is extremely well managed and organized. I had a smooth flight and moved in into my temporary accommodation right-away, they have also gone far in helping me settle down. This combined with your valuable pre departure orientation session has been so helpful that I can say this truthfully, I haven’t felt for a moment that I have left India at all..Again, I would like to thank you for all the advice and help that you have given me, due to which I am here comfortably settling-in in a university of my choice and doing what I’ve wanted to do for a long time.

Advisers at Yashna Trust displayed genuine interest and enthusiasm and helped us with every single step of the application process. We found the whole process very promising and doable under their able guidance. The advisers provided us with insights on criteria  for selection of Universities and valuable guidance through their workshops on essay writing. They were very approachable and would clarify any doubt that parents have. The interactive sessions with university representatives were extremely enlightening and gave lot of hope and confidence for students and parents alike. The university fairs helped students and parents become aware of the wide range of choice that is available for international students, different components of application and student profile. We would not have come this far but for Yashna Trust's guidance and Services that are genuine and valuable.

MS in Forensic Accounting, Georgia Southern University

I was interested in pursuing a Masters degree in Forensic Accounting for the longest time. My primary challenge was identifying a school and program that best fit my needs. I was referred to Yashana Trust via family and friends. The staff at Yashana Trust make every effort to understand each aspiring student’s unique needs and help find the school and program that will be the best fit. They offer a comprehensive program that guides students from identifying the right school to the visa process. Thank you all.

I found your visa seminar most helpful. I got an insight not only on the entire visa process, but also pointers on how to prepare for it. Thank you very much!

I got to know about Yashna Trust through one of my friends. Before getting here, I did explore a lot of other higher education consultants. During my first interaction with Yashna, I realized that they are very different – Dedicated, honest and sincere. They want to provide quality service and help students with no intentions to exploit money.

My experience with Yashna has been really fruitful and satisfying. I enrolled myself in the entire package which offered University short-listing, SOP and LOR reviews, Preparation for Visa and pre-departure sessions. Since there are about 4500+ universities in US, I had questions on how many Universities to apply and the way to go about short listing of schools.
The initial sessions at Yashna helped me align my thoughts and narrow down the list of Universities. The staff was of great help with prompt responses over phone and mails too.
You always need someone to review your SOP (very important for securing a good admit). They provided excellent review comments and helped me in making quality SOP by highlighting my interests clearly.

Everyone knows that Visa is one of the most important steps in the process and the battle is not won until you secure a U.S. Visa. Yashna organized a Visa session by a Consular officer from the American Consulate, Chennai. This session particularly helped me gain confidence and answered most of the doubts which I had. Yashna also provided a checklist of documents that I need to have and so on. Yashna also organized useful pre-departure sessions inviting people from different sections of the industry.

And Yashna’s service doesn’t end there. They are constantly in touch with me even now and it feels like a part of family. I would highly recommend Yashna Trust for people looking for help with regard to higher education. As I mentioned, they have a wonderful set of staff who care for you and it feels wonderful to be a part of Yashna family.


“My adviser Ramya Ashok from Yashna Trust, helped me discover myself during the individual sessions conducted on essays for my college applications. It boosted my confidence and encouraged me to work harder. Over all, I have come to realize that applying to U.S. universities is much more than submitting grades– It’s an experience that is enriching and builds an individual as a whole! If one dedicates to it and simultaneously enjoys it, the results are fruitful”.
