Top 5 Things Admission Counselors Do On The Road

Top 5 Things Admission Counselors Do On The Road

During the fall of each school year, I travel…a lot. I wake up early, catch flights across the national country, and search the Hertz parking lot for rental cars with back-up cameras. During this time around, we’m rarely at my desk, I’m meeting a great deal of awesome pupils, and learning about the cool and exciting things pupils are doing. However when i am not on an airplane or at the leasing automobile counter, right here’s what I’m probably doing…

  1. Interviews and Receptions and tall class visits

Check your high school’s hallways for our visit posters. If we have been coming to your school within the next couple of weeks you should see our poster outside your counseling office. We shall also be Discover that is doing USC on campus and throughout the United States and abroad.

  1. Hoarding Pens

If there clearly was something you should bring with you a senior high school visit, it’s a pen. We shall provide you with one thing to write in, but we do not present something to compose with. We give some pretty useful information at these visits, so it’s generally beneficial to make note of a few notes. Last week I visited schools in southern Virginia. I started the week with about ten extra pens and ended with two.

  1. Answering questions

We spend a lot of time answering concerns while we travel (and really throughout the year.) But, when we have been on the highway, this is our central mission. We attempt to answer all regarding the relevant question you have while we are in your area. SO, the best piece of advice I can provide you is ASK YOUR QUESTIONS. It is also better to answer questions when we are standing in front side of you then to later email us.

  1. Sitting in my car

We sit in my car…a lot… often it feels than I do in the actual high school like I spend more time in my car. Often I’ll check Facebook (I’m old) or Snapchat, and make some updates that are funny the brand new filters (lately the bunny is my favorite.) Inevitably I end up sitting in my own car much longer than I should when I’m (still) playing Hamilton and trying out my best (read worst) rap abilities. That reminds me! Anybody filling out of the Quick Takes yet? Remember, short, sweet, and just be YOU! This isn’t trick.

  1. Eating local but drinking Starbucks

Have any good restaurant recommendations that aren’t Chipotle? Send them our way! We want to explore towns and discover about where you live. Understanding where you come from, helps us understand your application. We would like to get a feel for your community and experience what you encounter on a daily basis. We tried an amazing Greek place last week which was in a completely random location…thanks Yelp!
