  • Fantastic Mentor With The Friendliest Demeanor
    3 weeks ago
    There is not an inch of doubt that Anuradha is one of the finest consultants available in India. I worked with her in R2 of my applications and found that she was fully committed to understanding my aspirations. She went beyond my expectations with her patience to illustrate my goals and my school fit. Throughout the process, she took the time to discover the unique factors in my profile and gave thoughtful suggestions and comments on my essays. She was always available to talk to, no matter what time of day (or night!). It was a remarkable experience building applications with her, and I'm grateful for her constant help and reassurance when I was preparing for interviews. I got into all the schools I aimed ...

  • Great Mentor
    4 months ago
    I worked with Anuradha for both US and India b-schools applications. I enjoyed long discussions about my goals and passions in life. Indeed there were few agree to disagree, but overall the experience of the application cycle was terrific. Now, I am at my preferred B-school, and I still call Anuradha back for advice on general B school-related stuff. From brainstorming goals/schools to concise essays to interview preps and beyond, I'll go ahead with Anuradha.

  • Beyond The MBA Jargon
    4 months ago
    My experience with Anuradha has been quite wonderful, and filled with so many stories and growth! Here, I'd like to briefly lay out a few key aspects of our engagement, which have been quite pivotal during my journey: 1. Indian Male IT Engineer: I bet many of us can understand this predicament - the competitiveness and labor which follows this tag. For me, this was a constant feeling right from day 1. Here, I feel that Anuradha was the best mentor I could ask for. From being supportive to pushing me towards my best, she helped me realize that each day was an opportunity for growth! Her positivity and trust in my abilities empowered me to achieve both my MBA goals and my professional goals. In ...

  • A Top-Notch Mentor For The Finest Schools
    4 months ago
    I wholeheartedly recommend Anuradha for your MBA application journey. If you're like me, you’re interested in attending an elite US MBA program so you’ll need to craft a variety of outstanding applications that spotlight your unique qualities and reflect not just your capability, but your fit. Hence, it’s critical to work with someone who will not only spend the time and effort to understand you, but also has the knowledge and aptitude to guide you through putting together materials that belong at top-tier institutions. Here are some highlights from my experience with Anuradha: 1. Building a Narrative: This is perhaps one of the most fundamental aspects of your application. I really appreciate that Anuradha helped me find the thread to weave together my past experiences and forge ...

  • Excellent Mentor & Person - Highly Recommend For MBA Aspirants
    4 months ago
    I loved working with Anuradha and Gunjan for my MBA applications to the US and the UK. It’s really important to trust the advice of your MBA consultant which in my case was not easy to earn. I spoke to several consultants, established and emerging, before making my decision to work with Anuradha. I’m extremely happy with my decision. I was admitted to London Business School, Yale SOM, UCLA Anderson ($$), Cornell Johnson ($), and USC Marshall ($$$$). Anuradha and Gunjan played a significant role in these admit decisions. Anuradha is highly informed and keyed into the MBA programs and admissions process. I’d guess her knowledge stems from up-to-date research, monitoring of applications data, and her work with prior students, rather than assumptions based on ...

  • Beyond Mentorship! A True MBA Admissions Guru
    5 months ago
    I was already enrolled with an MBA admissions consultant (an already established brand), but I missed originality and true self-reflection in their approach. I decided to move on, and then I found Anuradha, and I was lucky I got in early in her last year's batch. Anuradha's work is defined by her "Consistency and Effort" they may sound like simple words, but that's the most fundamental quality of a great mentor. She not only puts effort into making you find your Genuine X-factor and shine it through your essays, but she's consistent in her approach. She honors her workflow and timelines and makes you not only prepared for MBA admissions but the actual MBA itself. Be it crafting your resume or brainstorming on essays, Anuradha genuinely brings ...

  • Great Consultant For Your MBA Aspirations - Highly Recommend!
    1 year ago
    Anuradha has a genuine desire and motivation to help her clients get into the colleges they aspire to be in and she is not money/business motivated. Some attributes of Anuradha that I witnessed while working with her: 1. Great workflow - Anuradha has a comprehensive sheet of questions she needs to have filled when you enroll with her. These questions are based on personal motivations, one's past experience, and goals/desires. She then seamlessly brings them out in one's college essays 2. Extensive experience - Have given 5+ interviews and wasn't ever left unprepared for any question that was asked thanks to the prep beforehand 3. Honest - Will be quite frank about your chances in the colleges one has selected and helps trim/explore other colleges accordingly 4. ...

  • Couldn't Have Asked For Better!
    1 year ago
    Anuradha and the team at Sowani global take the time and effort to understand *your* strengths and weaknesses as an MBA applicant, and do a great job of laying out what each University MBA adcom is looking for! I was a nontraditional applicant with a poor undergraduate GPA, but the Sowani Global team did a great job in understanding my goals and ambitions. Now, in the Fall of 2021 (perhaps one of the most competitive admissions cycles), I'm going to a Full-Time, Ivy League, 2 Year MBA program!

  • Fantastic Consultant + Coach
    1 year ago
    Working with Sowani Global has been nothing short of amazing. I contacted Sowani Global and had a brief preliminary talk over the phone with Anuradha. The first call itself ensured me of the direction in which we would be taking the process. Anuradha was mindful of the preferences in my non-USA ambition for an MBA, and we stuck to the vision. She could pull out my strengths according to what she read from my CV and heard from my narrative, and that was a fantastic lesson. I realized how much I was underselling my achievements and capacities. The best part was how involved Anuradha was with the profile grooming and subsequent prep for the interviews. She helped tune the CV and essays with absolute honesty. To specify about the helpfulness, ...

  • The Best Mentor And A Perfect Partner To Help You Seek Your MBA Goal!
    2 years ago
    During my journey to find a consultant, I made 6-7 phone calls, attended information sessions conducted by consultants as a part of promotions activity, and listened to their fees in Lacs of rupees. None of them piqued my interest or seemed reliable. Finally, my journey ended when I came across a profile of Anuradha almost after 3 weeks of searching on the internet. She is a Yale SOM alumni and has a thorough understanding of the MBA admissions process. I experienced her mastery over this entire process starting from shortlisting the schools, applying to colleges, interview preparations, and negotiating for scholarships. She tries to understand the background holistically in terms of work experience, academics, and extracurricular activities before starting the process of college shortlisting. I had ...

  • Anuradha Is Amazing !!
    2 years ago
    I had a great time working with Anuradha. Got interview invites for 4 out of the 4 colleges I applied to. I started working with her at a time when the deadlines were almost approaching but she was so calm and positive throughout. From understanding my professional journey to discussing my career goals, she did not leave a single leaf unturned. After receiving my interview invites, she gave me really helpful interview tips, conducted mock sessions, and was always available. Couldn't have asked for a better counselor.
