It was a pleasure working with Sri during the college application process for my daughter. Sri brings to the table a deep understanding of the US college admission process and what some of the premier US universities are looking for in applicants. His guidance, motivation and coaching during the process was instrumental in my daughter being admitted to multiple IVY league universities as well as other top tier universities in the US. Among other things Sri helps hone and perfect multiple skills including Critical Thinking, Analytical skills, Multi-tasking, Time Management, and the ability to effectively manage deadlines. I would strongly recommend Sri and the Dream Seeker's Academy.

We started working with the Dream Seekers after my colleagues from IBM recommended them. Seeing my son's progress from working with them, I understood why they came with such high praise. Moving to the United States abruptly in the middle of my son's high school created great challenges for him to overcome. Dream Seekers gave my son the confidence and guidance he needed at this critical time to get through the complex college application process. My son was able to do so successfully, overcoming his challenges and receiving the college admissions he sought. With support from the Dream Seekers, he proceeded to Georgia Tech to pursue his BS/MS in engineering.

Sri is a unique resource when it comes to admissions to top universities. He is extremely observant of the student's strengths and based on that, guides them towards a thoroughly professional, process driven and meticulous profile building experience. His knowledge, expertise and perseverance till the results are achieved make him special as he gets involved personally and even provides moral counseling. I simply can't forget the inspiration and encouragement Dream Seekers has given my son through the course of their interactions, not only regarding admissions, but more generally in life. For me, this process itself was an exercise that was worth the investment. The bonus was that my son was admitted to an Ivy League school! I I highly recommend DSA for the sheer force behind it, Sri Akella. May he and his team continue to help many more aspiring students reach their dreams.

I was referred to Sri through a fellow YPO member in Hyderabad. Sri was able to connect with my daughter and me instantly. Sri’s youthful enthusiasm gives him this ability to easily relate with students and parents alike. Moreover, his team’s track record of excellence speaks for itself – his team (Dream Seekers) has placed students into a number of the world’s top universities. In the end, my daughter was admitted to NYU’s Stern Undergraduate School of Business – one of the world's top business programs. My daughter’s increased sense of self-confidence and her improved communication skills are unmistakable. I have already requested Dream Seekers to work with my son for his MBA applications.

My experience with Dream Seekers Academy was nothing short of incredible. Like many others, my work is vey demanding of my time. That being the case, I knew that my twins would need the attention and the support of real professionals to help them through the college admissions process. The difference with them was that they not only provided guidance on all technicalities of the process - they provided the necessary moral support to really inspire my kids through a tense period. My wife and I are very thankful and we can honestly say that without the Dream Seekers' help, my kids could not have placed into the colleges that they did, which happen to be some of top programs in the country in their areas of interest.
