Q.17 Do I need a counsellor?
This is a tricky question. It depends largely on if you have people to help you out (seniors/relatives). If you have no idea whatsoever, going to a good counsellor is highly recommended. USIEF is probably a very effective choice (The membership is hardly Rs. 3000). In order to meet the counsellors, you need to take an appointment, sometimes a week or 2 in advance. If you start the process early, USIEF is probably a great choice. Otherwise, there are other counsellors and some are very good. If you want to go for the best quality counsellor, you can choose Yocket Premium (the counsellors and advisors stay with you from the start of the process till you fly out to your dream destination). Do a bit of a discussion with the guys who they have counselled in the past and take your decision based on that.
Q.18 What does a counsellor do?

Here's again where Yocket Premium prove their value to your expectation. You can schedule a call for any silly doubt that you have and don't have to travel across the city to meet your counsellor. You can just have a session online with your counsellor and get it over with.
Q.19 Is accepting multiple admits a problem?
You may accept as many unfunded admits as you want. However, it is highly recommended that the moment you decide on your university, send the other universities a mail notifying that you won’t be joining them. Typically, the deadlines to accept an offer from a university would be April 15th. Though many do get admits post 15th.
However, try to have a shortlisting done in such a way that there are less Universities in your safe zone and more in your ambitious zone because the safes ones would be easy according to your profile to get into. Yocket Premium does it with a machine learning algorithm which has high efficiency because of their large database of students (over 150,000 yocket users). Check them out, if you want a better shortlisting.

As for placement scenario, you will need to consult seniors of your college. Finally, it all boils down to how good you are in the field that you are pursuing.
Q.20 How do you shortlist universities?
This is by far the most challenging part of the process. While short listing, you should ask yourself the following questions:
Many counsellors try to sell you out to their partner universities as it's easy for them. Be aware of such counsellors. Yocket Premium is a service that would give you an unbiased shortlisting done based on your "profile" and not based on "partner universities".
SOME CLOSING TIPS:
Yocket helps you with your couriers as well, if you want to deliver your transcripts or any other physical document to the University. This comes with the Yocket Premium as well!
Best wishes to all of you!
