How Mindset Coaching Can Help Your Graduate School Applications and More
What is mindset coaching?
If you haven’t heard of mindset coaching and how it can help you with your graduate school applications, Nicole, a mindset coach for The Art of Applying®, has a great way of describing it. As Nicole shared, “I think of mindset coaching simply as getting into the right mindset to be the best version of you as you complete your [graduate school] application. That can mean a lot of different things for different people.”
How did Nicole become a mindset coach? Nicole has a diverse background. She graduated from Yale University with a degree in Psychology, and worked in management consulting within the media, entertainment and retail industries. Nicole burned out and took a break to travel before applying to business school. She earned an MBA from Wharton, and worked in corporate M&A before going on a journey of self-discovery that led her to mindset coaching.

What kinds of dragons can mindset coaching help you defeat? Our mindset coaches like Nicole can help you overcome self-doubt, better manage your time and stress to succeed in your graduate school applications!
- Take More Advantage of the Time You Already Have
Most of us feel like we’re too busy with our professional work and personal lives. When you add the graduate school application process on top of those, you’ll get even busier.
Our mindset coaches are great at helping clients with time management, but the way they help isn’t always what our clients expect. Some people just want time management tips that magically give them more time in the day to get more done. Our mindset coaches focus on optimizing the time you do spend on your application so you get the most out of that time.
Here’s the process in Nicole’s words, “I can’t be like, ‘I think this is what your schedule should look like,’ because I’m an expert in coaching. The client is an expert in themselves, you’re an expert in you.”
Nicole shares one strategy to overcome procrastination, “One example is procrastination. Some people are like, ‘I shouldn’t procrastinate.’ But, you do procrastinate. So let’s schedule that in.”
- Help with Stress Management
Applying to graduate school is not easy. Life isn’t easy either. The application process along with your day to day responsibilities can stress you out if you don’t manage them well. Our mindset coaches are comfortable going beyond just the issues you face during the grad application process. They are great at helping you manage your emotions, navigate personal or work relationships, and helping you reach clarity on a decision you’re struggling with.
Most of all, our mindset coaches can help you face any limiting beliefs you have and help you work through them. If you’ve ever held limiting beliefs like, “I’m not good enough to get in,” or “Other applicants are better than me,” you’re not the only person who’s ever felt that way. Our mindset coaches are equipped to help you work through these feelings and move forward.
Take it from Nicole on how common it is to have these thoughts, “Anything you’re feeling is totally okay, and I guarantee you, I’ve seen other people come through with the same thing.”
