I came to know about Gradvine through Shrija Priyanil (currently a mentor at Gradvine), who at the time was in the University of Washington at Seattle for her Masters. Based on her feedback, I quickly got in touch with Suraj Peri, regarding how to proceed with my Master’s application cycle.
Before I go into the details, I would like to state that Suraj, Srikar and the team are an extremely dedicated bunch, and they try their absolute best to ensure that they can help a student in the best possible manner. Right from selecting Universities and programs that are particular to your interests, to helping with your SOPs and résumés, they delve into the intricacies of every detail during the application with the student. One highlight is that this process will not be standardized, as in the case of other Consultancies; rather, this is curated to the program and the student.
In spite of the fact that I did not get into any program in the first application cycle, Suraj stuck with me throughout next year, taking my long and tedious queries at odd hours of the day. He ensured that I projected myself in the best possible manner before a graduate selection committee. Suraj has been an amazing mentor and friend. I attribute a large part of my success to Suraj and the folks at Gradvine!
