"My journey at Harvard University began with a summer course in Mergers & acquisitions at Harvard Law School in 2019. After my return, I joined the Harvard Club of India of which Dr. Sanjay Kumar is the President. Dr. Sanjay Kumar is an exceptional mentor. In 2022, When I decided to apply for a master's program at Harvard, he guided me through my options. He helped me evaluate the benefits of courses in Law and Public Administration. Based on his guidance and mentorship, I decided to apply for a master’s Program in Public Administration at Harvard Kennedy School. He guided me in shaping my essays and choosing for recommenders which are vital for getting admission to Harvard. "

"From our very first meeting, it was evident that Dr. Sanjay Kumar’s genuine passion for helping students achieve their goals was unwavering. As a legal professional, I often found myself confronted with multiple and complex career paths. However, Dr. Kumar provided the encouragement I needed to pursue my aspirations of attending Harvard Law School – a dream college for any LLM applicant. He shared his own experiences and wisdom, which inspired and motivated me to take that leap.He invested time in getting to know me as an individual, understanding my strengths, weaknesses, and the unique story that shaped me. Through continuous encouragement, he challenged me to question the reasons behind every choice I made in my life. "
