Graduate/Professional Admissions

Considering Applying to Graduate School?

We can help. Marks Education graduate school counselors will help you make the most of every opportunity in graduate admission.

Your dream career means you need to specialize—you need law school, medical school, or business school to gain the skills and credentials to achieve your goals.

Nisha Sardella understands what it takes to be admitted to selective professional programs in each field. She provides one-on-one admission counseling, customized to suit each applicant’s needs. From a single, hourly session to a year-long package, she can help you develop an effective, efficient plan for law school, medical school or business school admissions.

Just as each school has its specialties, each admission committee will have its own perspective on a candidate’s application. Through Nisha’s years of experience and ongoing research, she understands these nuances, and they inform her advice to candidates at every point, from initially deciding where to apply to finally completing essays that highlight your strengths.

She is on your side—every step of the way. 

I am SO grateful for all your help over this past year and really can’t thank you enough for supporting and pushing me to be the best applicant I could be. It’s been incredible to have you by my side through all of it. The process of applying to medical school is daunting and challenging but having someone there to help navigate through it was invaluable! I couldn’t be more excited to take on this new adventure!!

I have worked with Nisha Sardella at Marks Education on numerous graduate school and fellowship applications over five years and have been extremely pleased with her services. I know that both the general brainstorming of topics and also the line-by-line consideration of my personal statements elevated my applications to a higher level. I was admitted first to the postbaccalaureate program at Bryn Mawr, and later to the Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health, where I was named a Zuckerman Fellow. I owe my admissions successes in large part to Nisha at Marks Education, for helping me to present my best self through my applications.

HARVARD MEDICAL AND PUBLIC HEALTH. GRADUATE, CLASS OF 2018

Nisha’s guidance throughout the law school process was absolutely invaluable for me from the initial stage of establishing a list of schools through deciding between multiple amazing offers. I went through the law school application process while working full time in New York City, and Nisha routinely went above and beyond to work around my busy professional schedule. From early morning phone calls to lightning-fast email responses, Nisha helped to make the process as smooth and as manageable as I could have hoped for.

Having the benefit of Nisha’s vast knowledge of individual law schools and the overall process not only made me feel that I was putting together the best applications possible, but also that I would ultimately end up at the law school that was right for me. Nisha helped me tailor a game plan specifically geared towards illuminating my strengths on each application, and I was thrilled with the offers I received as a result of following through with that plan.

When I was applying to law school, Nisha Sardella’s guidance was invaluable. With her extensive experience, always fresh insights and the personal attention she provided, Nisha helped me successfully navigate the complex and sometimes painful application process. I was able to draft an application that highlighted my strengths. After receiving multiple offers of admission, Nisha helped me to choose the law school that was right for me. The pre-professional counseling offered by my undergraduate university simply did not compare with Nisha’s guidance. If applying to graduate school is part of your career planning, I strongly recommend working with her.
