I still remember that day when my mother asked me, “How about doing a PhD abroad?” So after learning about an exam called GRE, I was looking for a proper guidance as all these things were totally new to me. After going through a few coaching centers, and rejecting them in my mind the moment I stepped inside their threshold, I arrived at Edxcare with the same anticipation in my mind. But something was different. I wasn’t being asked what my achievements were in life in terms of curricular activities. Instead, Mr. Arindam Roy started to explain the different realms of the life in US, it captured my interest and undivided attention. When it was done, I somehow felt at home because of his one important statement: “If you decide to stay here, remember one thing. You are my student as long as I bid you farewell and see you off at the airport. Even if that takes two years or two months.” I was skeptic about the whole thing, but for the first time, this statement hit me. All the other centers were offering me a course for 2 months or 6 months or whatever. But here is a guy, who is so confident about himself sending me to US with a full scholarship, that he is giving me an indefinite amount of time to be there, right inside Edxcare international. I loved this confidence, so I decided to join. That was the start, I never had to look back in terms of proper guidance about making it to THE US, having fun (which was more important to me for some reason), making some crazy new friends and having those snack parties after class and having loads of laughter, fun and also bonding with Arindam da more and more. He is such an amazing guy. I wished I had met him earlier. Days passed like seconds and finally the D-day came. I scored quite well. But alas, how wrong I was when I thought the main hurdle is over after giving GRE.
The application phase was anarchy. You can see students in almost every corner of the classroom, frantically making and adjusting their applications, papers and documents flying across the room, nonstop sound of printers and scanners doing their job relentlessly, thousands of emails bidding farewell to us and making it to US. Man! I have seen it all. Finally it was all over. I cracked 5 universities with full scholarship and stipend. I never forgot that how hard Edxcare fought to keep its promises. How we never got demoralized, never gave up, never thought it was too difficult. All these feelings, now I realize were totally an intersection set with EdXcare. I love Edxcare with all my heart and I love Arindam da even more. He was like an elder brother to me all along, giving me suggestions in both my professional and personal life. Had it been not for Edxcare, I wouldn’t have ended here so smoothly and without complicacies. And even if I am far away, maybe it’s not a farewell at all, only a new beginning. Today, Edxcare is one of the elite training centers in India and this is only due to the fact that EDX cared!
Rock On !
