Welcome to the hub for all things AdmissionsMom.
Born on Reddit as u/admissionsmom on the subreddit ApplyingToCollege, I have guided thousands of stressed high school students—from every corner of the globe—through the college admissions process. My mission? To demystify, debunk, and most importantly, de-stress your college admissions journey. Let’s find the best colleges for YOU.
Choosing a college is a big decision—perhaps the biggest decision you’ve ever made. But it doesn’t need to be a painful one.
If you’re wondering, “Why is college admissions so stressful and competitive?” you’re not alone. I wondered that myself. And that’s why I started helping students like you navigate the college admissions process with an unconventional approach.
You shouldn’t feel overwhelmed and confused. You shouldn’t feel pressure to hit targets, chase prestige, or find a “dream” school. The college admissions process should be filled with excitement while you find your direction in life. I’m here to reduce the anxiety and frustration from your admissions journey.
There are thousands of excellent colleges out there looking for students like you. When you incorporate self-discovery and awareness into your admissions journey, you’ll realize how capable and full of potential you truly are. You can focus your attention away from rankings and toward enjoying the college admissions experience.
Together we can find the right colleges for you. I’ll help you write college application essays that sound like you and showcase how unique you are. I’ll teach you to use mindfulness to tune out the outside pressures of the college admissions process.
Are you ready for a little peace of mind? Looking for mindful guidance as you enter the college admissions process?
