From growing up in a suburb in Southern India to graduating with a master’s from Columbia University and then working in Silicon Valley, Soundarya Balasubramani knows the daunting challenges of applying and getting in to graduate school abroad.
In January 2020, she began working on what was supposed to be a short, 10-page guide, with Saikishore Raju, one of the contributors to the book. That project ended up expanding as Soundarya and a small team put in over 2000 hours to create the guide, first published in August 2020 in India. It has been used by over 1500 students around the world.
Admitted is for students in any country looking to enter graduate or undergraduate programs in the U.S., Canada, or Europe. It offers a unique combination of practical advice, mental frameworks to make better decisions, personal anecdotes, a philosophical touch, and illustrations to support and encourage you along the way. A few sections include special advice for Indian students.
The Holloway Edition is a revised and expanded version of the edition originally published in India and includes lifetime access to all resources and future updates.
