I am very sorry to let the CC community know that Lookingforward passed away recently. As another member said so well, “She was honest and her candor will be missed. She was always willing to offer advice and suggestions to those who asked.”
Lookingforward continually emphasized how important it is for students to understand what colleges look for in their applicants. Her perspective from working in admissions at a prestigious university gave her authentic insight, and she generously shared her wisdom with students over the many years she was active on College Confidential.
I think I can speak for all of us when I say she will be greatly missed here. I hope students who come across her posts continue to benefit from her excellent advice. From everyone here at CC, we send our thoughts and prayers to her loved ones. May she rest in peace.
