The online classes at Manya-The Princeton Review provided me the much-needed guidance. Despite preparing only for a few weeks, I was able to achieve a score of five in AP Calculus BC. I would attribute this achievement to them. The coaching is definitely top-notch. Though I was not interested in Mathematics, this course made me choose the subject as a college major.

My experience with Manya-The Princeton Review was very satisfying. My admission counselor was of big help and was accessible anytime. They very patiently considered my criteria and gave me more options of universities which were very useful to me. My Counsellors was of immense help to me. They would always patiently listen to all my queries and help to resolve it. I must say, they are very prompt and always accessible. My editor was on leave temporarily and when I contacted my counselor regarding this they immediately put me up with a different editor and my SOP was edited within a couple of days. Overall, I had a very satisfying experience with my counselors and the counseling service.
