About the Book

Writing the Common Application essay can be an anxiety-inducing task for many aspiring university students. The essay is meant to uniquely identify each student, and help them shine. But how do fresh young high-schoolers captivate admissions officers through their narratives, portray themselves as agents of change, and chronicle personal achievements and individual talents without seeming to brag? What are the pitfalls to avoid, what would make them stand out, and give them a winning edge in this highly competitive environment?

‘Indian Roots, Ivy Admits: 101 Essays that Got Indian Students into the Ivy League and Stanford is a new and expanded edition of the original, which contained 85 essays. We hope that just like the first edition, this, too, will lead young contenders on the path to drafting their successful overseas education applications.


This revised edition is for any student who aims to pursue higher education in world-class universities. It fulfils its promise to empower aspiring candidates, by providing invaluable perspectives in self-reflection, and narration, through its format of winning essays and insightful commentary on why the essay works.

Each essay is written by a young student who earned a well-deserved place in a Ivy League university or Stanford. The in-depth assessment that follow will help aspirants understand how to approach, map and scribe their own strongly structured, creative essays.

Curated by Viral Doshi and Mridula Maluste, two of India’s leading experts in the domain of education, this book is an invaluable resource for students, teachers and counselors, as well as enthusiastic parents.
