Uncommon Advisors is a Mumbai-based independent educational consultancy that helps students who are looking to study abroad, with their undergraduate college applications, especially the process of writing the Essays. The firm's founder - Ileshaa Khatau graduated with a degree in Political Science from the University of Chicago’s rigorous and creative education. Ileshaa strongly believes that all applicants should strive to be Uncommon, and their application essays are the perfect opportunity to convey that. Their voice must be singular, distinctive and unexpected. Their story, however simple it may be, must be told in a manner that is extraordinary, irregular, even to the extent of being odd. Our students over the last three years have been admitted into some of the top American Universities such as Harvard, Brown, Berkeley to name a few as well as Universities in India and around the world.
