Counselling Pakistan – Our Story
Originating in a frustrated student’s mind as he looked to overcome the shortages of application resources available to Pakistani students, Counselling Pakistan is an idea to eradicate that very experience from the future of every Pakistani student. Established in 2013 as an alternative to the for-profit organizations, our mandate strives to develop a global network of students and alumni at the world’s leading universities to give free, customized, and well-researched admissions guidance to students all across Pakistan. We believe that all young, driven minds deserve the opportunity to explore the boundless potential of their dreams, and we assist students from start to finish. That means from selecting a school list, to helping them fill out their housing forms in the summer before they attend, and everything in between. The “in between” includes everything from standard Q&A sessions, to building a robust list of school options, sourcing financial aid and scholarships, assisting with the application forms and recommendations, as well as editing essays and personal statements.
Having been through the same journey and understanding the ground realities, we have selected a strong, dedicated team of young Pakistanis studying all over the world who have themselves gone through extensive or complicated admissions processes. We maintain a roster of over 70 Pakistani students studying in universities across 10 different countries around the globe. Over 80% of our team studies at “top 100 ranked universities in the world” and about 40% of them study at Ivy League or Russell Group universities. These counsellors take a great, vested interest in each of their applicants and have a strong rapport with their students.
While we have helped a substantial number of students in high schools across the country, at Counselling Pakistan, we believe we have a bigger responsibility to the nation. We want every student in Pakistan, regardless of his/her high school, income level and social status, to dream big and to make it there, without facing the hassles we faced. In order to make our goal a reality, we built the country’s first online college counselling platform that enables any student in Pakistan to reach out to us, at any time, without any cost. Through our newest initiative ” The Dashboard, we intend to build dreams and careers, not profits. Join us as we embark on a journey to frame your future. Raise your concerns and ask your queries away.
Your CP Dost will be a friend in need, a counsellor indeed.
