More About Our Company

Basically there are two things that I wanted to share with my readers and students on my “About Me” page: Ofcourse the first one is a bit about me, then a bit about why I started with BrightLink Prep.

On 21 September 2007 when I gave my GRE exam I scored 1590/1600 with a 800/800 in the Quantitative section. (This converts to a 339/340 on the Revised Scale). In 2008 I gave my GMAT and got a 97 percentile. Then I went to U.S. to pursue my postgraduate studies at one of the elitest IVY League – Cornell and also took up a couple of courses at Harvard.


Three and a half years later. . .


… when I was in Pakistan I started getting a lot of queries from students aspiring to go to the U.S. for higher studies regarding GRE, GMAT, Admissions, Recommendation, Statement of Purpose etc. . .

This propelled me to start BrightLink Prep – with the only aim of helping out prospective students in Pakistan getting into U.S. and doing the GRE and GMAT.
