– Online Admissions Consulting Service by expats

Share this Article


A number of bright Pakistani expats that have studied at top universities such as Duke, Cornell, Oxford, UT Austin, and work at Google, Microsoft, and elsewhere — which also includes Adnan Haider from the Lootmaar fame — have come together to launch today, a “US-based startup company that aims to provide the first Online Students Admission and Consulting Service in Pakistan”.

Their model is straightforward – they provide a set of general admissions and scholarship resources available on their site, and provide free “evaluation and consultation” that can help to guide you towards the best places to apply to. The hope would be that this would be followed by people paying for “admissions services” which includes preparing your admissions packages and writing effective supporting materials.

This is a space with very high demand among students in the local market, which also makes it a highly crowded space. I do agree that they could have easily disrupted the competition by executing a good online model, but right now they are not much different from the competition, except that their consultants are spread out all over the world.

Although I can see a couple of different models that would have worked better for this sort of service (particularly models that make the full process free for students and applicants) I will not critique them yet because this is 1.0 and this is also something these people seem to be doing out of genuinely good intentions, and not to mint money out of the less fortunate who need help in studying abroad (make no mistake though — charging for admissions services does seem to give that vibe to their brand).

Having said this, is still likely to face a flood of traffic and I hope their system picks up and scales well –atleast in this country, this is a space where the demand is near infinite.

  • Mansoor,

    In the past few days we have made more than 50 international calls (around 7-8 minutes each) and have helped students with their admission decisions. I call it free evaluation as we are spending money from our pockets just to answer these students queries (which can be anything like, Should I go to Germany, France for my education since its free or should i go to UK on loan? Can I get admission in an MBA with 1-2 years of work experience? Is it safe to live in US? etc etc).

    We have had more than 20+ cases in which students were asking us for the paid admissions service however we were able to convince them that they can apply themselves and we will always be available to answer their admissions related questions. We have accepted only 3 cases so far which we genuinely felt that they don’t have the expertise and resources to do quality research about the university they should apply to. (These were from Multan, D.G.Khan and Bahawalpur) and didn’t have proper access to internet at home and mainly use public internet.

    All of our consultants are making more than enough (MashaAllah) to support ourselves and are not looking for an extra few hundred rupees. Our main purpose of this service is to help students with their admissions questions and give them the best advice we can to help them advance in their careers. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding the intentions of our service.


  • younas: thanks for the clarification, however, i still suggest you reword/rephase it on your website as it misleads.

    Keep up the good work!

    Rise of facebook marketing in Pakistan


    Until a few years back we used to have closed groups and forums, which gathered the like minded people and anyone targeting the online audience would tap into that forum and market his/her services. So PakGamers , PakPassion initially even PakWheels used to be driven by members talking about what they loved, people used to create marketing and sales opportunities from within those discussions (so you could get a good router cheap or a gaming PC etc).
    The advent of facebook changed all that, most of the forum goers moved to the new social media. It also made a very attractive market place for some one who does not …

However, keeping good faith, the Competition Commission of Pakistan (CCP) has put forward “Deceptive Marketing Guidelines” which will maintain the Section 10 of the Competition Act, 2010. In order to enforce this part of the law and stop anti-competitive conduct on part of the telecom companies in advertising, the guidelines have been shared with Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and other concerned telecommunication sector members, in …
