Niharika Ma’am was very helpful in early sphere of the application process and was very patient with me. She refines my interviewing skills gave me the confidence in my communication skills to help me better prepare for the college interview sessions. The way application was made, made me bag not one but two IVY League Universities. KUDOS!! to Niharika ma`am & Ednet team!!
Before I came to Ednet, I never thought I could get into Swan. I had limited my potential to much lower colleges. But its only with the hard work put from everyone`s side that I could
"Ednet's team support in the preparation of my application was nothing less than Brilliant. I do not think it would have been possible to put my profile together the way Niharika Ma'am did for me. She made the entire application process painless and I sailed through it like a breeze."
To pursue an MBA from a top-ranked school had always been my dream. However, I had a multitude of constraints including no financial support, poor undergrad grades, difficulty in expressing myself, lack of direction and most crucially fear of the GMAT. With her guidance and the support of the entire Ednet team, I took on the challenge head-on. They helped me with excellent GMAT classes and provided the much-required career counseling based on sound research and rich experience. Colleges I applied to gave 40-60% scholarship and one made a 100% student loan available. Even at this stage, Niharika ma’am helped me take the correct decision and literally saw me through the finish line. Thank you for the bright future
