Admitted began as a one-week project in January 2020 when I wanted to create a short guide to help students who wanted to study abroad.
I approached Saikishore, one of the collaborators on the book, and we began working together. Soon enough, though, it became clear that there was a need for a comprehensive guide on this topic. There were no guides in the market that covered the end-to-end process in sufficient detail to help students make an informed decision. So after eight months of working with a small team of collaborators, designers, editors, and marketers for over 2,000 hours, Admitted’s first edition was published in August 2020 in India.
I first came across Holloway in the same month I began working on Admitted: January 2020. I loved the idea behind Holloway and the way it was executed with a beautiful, native web-reader. It wasn’t until the end of 2020 that I got a chance to have a call with Josh, the CEO and founder. We connected quickly on the call and by the end, we both had a vision of publishing Admitted on Holloway. I cannot overstate how thrilled I am to finally see this vision come true.
The Holloway Edition of this guide is a full revision of the first edition, with many improvements, corrections, and adaptations to a digital format. It is packaged with additional digital resources for online readers, including access to future updates.
Although this book is my brainchild, I worked with a strong team without whom this would not have been possible. Hence, I have used the pronoun we within the book to denote that this was a team effort.
