As the founder of mentor once told me "AT MENTOR student's priority comes first, student's career comes first,student's aspiration comes first ", and after spending more than 4 years with them I can proudly say that choosing mentor was one of the best decision i have ever made in my life. They have delivered all the promises. Admission process with them was so easy and hastelless but the one thing that makes MENTOR DIFFERENT from the rest is "they will not just leave you after admission but they'll will be with you by your side through the 5.5 years journey". The people at mentor will treat you like a family member and will support you in any situation abroad. Despite of being so busy the founder of mentor's are so responsive and easily reachable. With your hardwork and mentor's support you can definitely achieve your goal.
