Walking towards home, one fine day, I noticed a small child carrying his half-torn school bag, completely oblivious about life and just seemed to be happy!  The small soul made me realize something: we all have hopes and dreams, but how many of us can really really achieve what we want!!


Well, Anushree Ramanath is one of those people who is clear about her dreams. A simple and talented girl, the first rank holder at her University (BNMIT, affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University, Bangalore) during her BE, who has bagged a prestigious offer of ‘Research Assistantship’ at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. She will be pursuing Power Electronics at the department. She had always remained one among the cream!


Anushree had approached Hotcourses India soon after completing her GRE/TOEFL exams, securing good scores. Our counsellors helped her in a number of ways – in shortlisting universities, apparently the first university where she applied was University of Minnesota, conducting several mock visa interviews over Skype and mails, guiding her to finalise the universities, editing her SOP and helping her with the delicate visa process. We are glad that she trusted Hotcourses India and we could give her the confidence to give a shape to her dreams finally.


While working as a software engineer in Bangalore, she was always focused about her study abroad dream and was slowly weaving thoughts and devising plans to head to her journey soon. Now she finds that her dreams are in sync with reality! University of Minnesota-Twin Cities is one of the leaders in delivering quality education and ranks among the top 20 public research universities for MS in Computer Engineering. 


The best part is – she has been awarded with 50% of her research assistantship that will waive 1 year of her tuition fee, which will be renewed in the following year, and it comes with a fellowship of $19,016.40 per year. We wish her a happy journey and good luck!
