I had my Canada study visa rejected, and I was devastated. After months of preparation I was looking forward to travelling to Canada and starting my education. When I approached Ms. Varrtika Mudaliaar for her advice, after looking at my documents she simply said that my visa statement of purpose was the sole reason for the rejection. I did not believe her at first. When she started to discuss the way the statement was drafted, I started to see that what I wanted to convey to the visa officers was well understood by me, but I was not able to put it on paper through my statement of purpose. She worked with me each paragraph at a time, pointed out ways to realign, readjust and rewrite the information, and three days later, after we had two detailed session and one thorough edit, I went ahead and applied for my visa again. Nothing else in my file had changed except the visa essay. Obtaining my visa acceptance has convinced me that statement of purpose has a more important role in the admission process to foreign universities and visa acceptance than what students understand. I thank Ms. Varrtika for her guidance also for my CV, and also for how she removed my fears and disappointment with her words of encouragement.
