Athena Education, the Indian leader in transformative life coaching for Ivy-League and equivalent universities, today announced that members of its graduating batch of scholars have already secured early admissions to MIT, Princeton, Columbia, Brown, Barnard, NYU, and Tufts. Additionally, more than 20 Athenians have received offers from leading UK universities. Results for other members of the batch will be announced around late March as part of the Regular Round.
US applications require not only academic records but also standardized tests, activity lists, essays, recommendations, and more. They admit students who are going to be amazing contributors both in the classroom and in the broader campus community. In addition, both in the US and the UK, excellent academic ability and intellectual vitality are essential, given that these institutions provide the highest caliber of scholarship and professional development.
Poshak Agarwal and Rahul Subramaniam, co-founders of Athena Education, said “We cannot believe how far our young scholars have come. They have grown not only in intelligence, but also in maturity and character. They are now ready to leave the nest, absorb all the wisdom the world has to offer, and transform the lives of others. Many congratulations to their families and all others who have tirelessly supported them along the way.”

“We genuinely trusted that under your mentorship, Anushka would not only reach her dream college but also grow and develop as a person. Today we can see that everyone’s efforts have come to fruition,” said Mr. Khetawat at the proud moment of his daughter’s acceptance.
Maanas’ parents were similarly jubilant: “We echo our heartiest gratitude to the Athena team as well. We have not seen any set of consultants who are as invested in a child’s success as y’all … you are the BEST!”
For the US, the Early Round submissions were due in early November, and the Regular ones in early January. Oxford and Cambridge will declare their results in the latter half of January and the rest of the UK results are mostly declared on a rolling basis.
