My experience with Manya-The Princeton Review was very satisfying. My admission counselor was of big help and was accessible anytime. They very patiently considered my criteria and gave me more options of universities which were very useful to me. My Counsellors was of immense help to me. They would always patiently listen to all my queries and help to resolve it. I must say, they are very prompt and always accessible. My editor was on leave temporarily and when I contacted my counselor regarding this they immediately put me up with a different editor and my SOP was edited within a couple of days. Overall, I had a very satisfying experience with my counselors and the counseling service.
While the technology has been developed primarily by companies in proprietary settings, there has been a new focus on improving it through open-source platforms. New players in the market, such as the startup venture LightSide and edX , the nonprofit enterprise started by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, are openly sharing their research. Last year, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation sponsored an open-source competition to spur innovation in automated writing assessments that attracted commercial vendors and teams of scientists from around the world.
