Zahra saved my life. We didn’t begin working on my applications until the beginning of October, so we had to move at a very fast pace. Even though I had about a million essays and revisions to do every week, working with Zahra hardly felt like work at all. She was so fun to work with and I know there would have been no way I would have known how to apply anywhere in the states without her!
Yet each year, thousands of Canadian students are rejected for admission to US colleges. The competition for limited spots is fierce, and tens of thousands of American students have the distinct advantage of private educational consultants who guide them through the process.
At Rasul Learning, US college admissions comprise the centre of our business. We believe in giving Canadian students the leg up on the admissions process by providing the most comprehensive hands-on support from beginning to end tailored specifically to Canadian students. Whether students seek admission at Ivy League universities or smaller “Hidden Ivy” liberal arts colleges, Rasul Learning consultants and coaches will create the “best fit” list of schools for each applicant. We do not believe in a “cookie-cutter” process advocated by many educational consultants who work in this area.
Most families come to us when the student begins high school in grade 9, and we work to create the best individualized path for each student to the colleges that best fit their needs.
Rasul Learning Group admissions services include:

What our students have to say:
You have cared about me not only as a client but as a student and a person and I greatly cherish all of the time that I have spent talking to both of you and all of the advice, college and life related, that you have given to me. I have committed to UChicago and am proud to be a part of the class of 2019 thanks to the aid that you guys have given me in nurturing my creativity with all of the essays I wrote for the college admissions process.
I spent most of my August before Grade 12 attempting to write supplementary essays and trying to navigate the treacherous depths of the new Common App website. Getting nowhere, I began working with Rasul Learning in September. The US application process is daunting at the very best of times; Salima and Zahra were there to help guide me at every step of the way. With Salima and Zahra, what was initially an arduous and overwhelming task became a process of self-discovery and self-exploration. Rasul Learning gave me the focus, support, and confidence I needed for successful applications to Princeton and Harvard, and for that, I am very grateful.
My mom was in search of someone to help me with my US College Applications. I was looking for someone with experience so that I could trust them entirely with the important process of applying to college. With Zahra, it didn’t feel like work at all. While writing essays did take a lot of time, working with Zahra was fun and enjoyable and made the whole process much easier. Even though I had about a million essays and revisions to do every week, working with Zahra hardly felt like work at all.
Our daughter wanted to attend an upper end U.S. school and we wanted to work with someone who was well qualified and would be easy for Alisha to work with. Zahra exceeded all our expectations. Our daughter loved working with her as did we. We could go to her for anything related to the application process. Our daughter was accepted at her first choice, Stanford and none of us can imagine it having happened without Zahra’s help.
Although the school year was very busy with academics, sports and Head Boy duties, Zahra and Salima were honestly the most fun part of the work week. They catered to my learning style and I had an absolute blast. More importantly, they are brilliant mentors who can see the big picture when it comes to applications. Not only did they help me organize my profile, but their presence allowed me to reflect on my identity. Zahra and Salima are great role models and have been everything I could have ever asked for as a student and a friend. Even as I move into my University years, the relationship that I have developed with RLG will remain an invaluable and life long facet of my everyday experiences. They inspired me to be the best that I could be, and for that, I am grateful. The fact that I was accepted early to Harvard was just the icing on the cake!
