About

Collegepond

Collegepond is a premier online/offline-counseling, career guidance, test preparation, and admissions counseling outfit. Our primary goal is to guide our students to success and our strength lies in highlighting the most optimal path in helping them accomplish their career ambitions. Merely getting into the college of your dreams will not ensure success in your future endeavours, your success largely depends on the decisions you take at most crucial junctures, be it concerning your higher education or professional life. Based on our experience in the US environment and inputs received from students who have made it to Wall Street, and Silicon Valley or have turned into Entrepreneurs, we have realized that prior to embarking on the path of higher education, a clear, well-thought-out strategy is required.

Spearheaded by Suraj Bajaj (Wharton ’91 and Columbia Business School ’98) and Jimeet Sanghavi (DJ Sanghvi ’04 and Stony Brook ’05), Collegepond boasts of more than 97% admission success rate to date. Under their able guidance, Collegepond has been successful in helping students get admission in the world’s most elite schools.

Journey

2003 - OUR STARTUP YEAR
Started as a pet project by Suraj Bajaj, Collegepond got off to a flying start and soon became an altruistic venture focused on maximizing happiness rather than making profit in the initial years of its existence.

Over the past eight years, Collegepond witnessed scores of students getting into leading universities such as Yale University, University of Oxford, University of California – Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon University, Duke University, London School of Business, INSEAD, Georgia Institute of Technology, and many more.

They bonded over their common passion for higher education consultancy. Jimeet’s technical expertise paired with Suraj’s business acumen made the two an ultimate business match.
