“Dear Dushyanth, 

I read your blog today and was highly impressed by the kind of information and article that you have given the links for. Wonderful. I am all for it. With the kind of persistence that you have you can get into the authorities at the central level.” [Referring to Physics after Engineering blog]

From the Giants

"The CoS website looks good. It is important you are building a community and support setup for people who realise that engineering is not for them and would like follow their passion for physics. I get queries from many such people - I know where to point them to now"
Dr. Rajesh Gopakumar
Director, ICTS-Bangalore
"I was very happy to receive your email and to follow the links. It takes a load of my mind and I will be happy to simply redirect queries to CoS. It is far more relevant than my saga, which is nearly 50 years old.
Good luck!

From the community

"The first time I came across CoS community while searching for physics Universities, I had tears in my eyes that somebody made it and there is hope for me, Thank you"

"Without this community, I'm not sure whether I would have been able to change my field, let alone do a PhD. I received the necessary support in my pursuit from them and most importantly, got the belief that what I aspire to do is achievable. CoS has been a key factor for me, as well as for a large number of other students in enabling us to pursue our dreams"
Kunal Vyas

"I joined the community in 2018 when there were only 35 people in cos, now we are a family of over 2000. It really helped me in the transition by providing community while preparing for entrance exams. Blogposts were informative and covered almost all the aspects of this journey. Its always nice to have a community when treading an unconventional path"
