Bachelors in Computer Science & Economics from Pomona College
Incoming MBA at Stanford GSB
Nirali, a Texas native and child of two Indian immigrants, has always found herself in various buckets at one time — whether that be her identity, passions, priorities, or favorite food at a given time. This also included MBA applications, where paired with a fear regarding a lack of expertise in any given area, Nirali was initially terrified of opening the can of application worms. However, now on the other side, Nirali looks forward to paying it forward & helping clients find the story which melds their many buckets together into a compelling application story.
In college, Nirali served as Student Body President, chair of Judicial Council, a Head Tour Guide, and Orientation Leader where she learned the power of bringing people together, holding disparate thoughts simultaneously, & a thorough planning spreadsheet. She also played club basketball, served as academic mentors in the CS & Econ departments, and truly loved nothing more than laying out on the sunny quad with friends .... with all of these experiences leading her to be a deep people person & a lover of all things done in teams.
During her deferral period before attending Stanford Graduate School of Business, Nirali is working at Boston Consulting Group (BCG) in Los Angeles. Her interests include the intersection of policy and business, consumer tech, sports (football, soccer, & tennis), fashion, and all things infrastructure and transportation (anything planes, airports, shipping, etc!).
