You’re reading an excerpt of Admitted by Soundarya Balasubramani. Written by an Ivy League graduate from India, this is the proven guide for students worldwide looking to pursue undergraduate or graduate study abroad in the U.S., Canada, or Europe. Purchase for instant access to the guide and other exclusive resources—including sample SOPs, sample resumes, scholarship lists, and a private community with other readers.

Think of this book as your companion and helper—somewhere in between loved ones who want the best for you but aren’t holding your hand at each step of the process, and the education consulting firms that do all your work in exchange for quite a lot of money.

We won’t tell you how to structure your statement of purpose down to each word. We also won’t let you go with a simple you can do it! vote of confidence. We like to stay in the middle.

The book will help and guide you in five key areas:

The content in the book is all about taking action. Aside from the examples present in the book, make use of the Resources folder that contains everything from sample SOPs to a tracking tool to tips on applying for loans. It might feel overwhelming at times as you take in all this information, but don’t think that you need to follow every single piece of advice given. It is up to you to pick and choose the guidance you feel applies best to your situation.

And last but not the least, you’re going to find a boatload of encouragement in the book to get you to your dream university!

Dive in with curiosity. This will be a long ride.
