“Sriram, I know I’ve said it countless times, but it’s worth saying it again – THANK YOU! You have been nothing less than fantastic throughout this process, especially over the stressful last few weeks. I am beyond proud of each application. You have helped me craft my story in a marvelous manner.”
“I am VERY happy! I know, I honestly wasn´t expecting to be accepted into the US programs because of my low GMAT. But Sriram helped me a lot with my essay and CV, consequently that helped me to put a lot of my ideas into perspective.”
“I have loved working with Sriram, he has really pushed me and has been incredibly available.”
“Sriram did an amazing job giving me feedback on my essays. He completed his comments in a very timely manner and they were extremely detailed to help me make edits. I appreciated his ability to be flexible with my timeline as well. I was admitted to Stanford GSB, Berkeley Haas, NYU Stern, and UNC Kenan-Flagler. Thank you again for all your help.”
“I wanted to commend Sriram on all of his hard work and effort, my application is likely a 500% improvement over what I would have submitted without his help. He was extremely personable and did an excellent job communicating my weak points, for instance in one of my essays I included several industry-specific technical terms and he referred me to a documentary where Henry Kissinger couldn’t figure out how to use the speaker on his phone, and stated that I should pretend that I am writing for him. Even the executives in my company are relatively technical, so I was in the habit of phrasing on those terms and forgot that not everyone would understand these. This was memorable for me and I will remember this in my career going forward.”
