Top 5 Things Admission Counselors Do On The Road



Through the fall of each school 12 months, I travel…a great deal. We wake up early, catch flights across the nation, and search the Hertz parking lot for rental cars with back-up cameras. During this time around, we’m rarely at my desk, we’m meeting a great deal of awesome pupils, and learning about the cool and exciting things pupils are doing. But when I’m not on an airplane or at the leasing car counter, right here’s just shmoop papers writers what I’m probably doing…

  1. Interviews and Receptions and tall class visits

Check your high school’s hallways for our visit posters. You should see our poster outside your counseling office if we are coming to your school over the next couple of weeks. We are going to additionally be Discover that is doing USC on campus and through the United States and abroad.

  1. Hoarding Pens

If there is certainly something you should bring with you a senior high school visit, it’s a pen. We will offer you one thing to write in, but we do not supply one thing to compose with. We give some pretty useful information at these visits, so it is generally helpful 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. Responding to questions

We spend a lot of time questions that are answering we travel (and really through the 12 months.) But, whenever our company is on the highway, this is our central mission. We try to answer all for the relevant question you have while we are in your town. SO, the best piece of advice I can provide you is ASK YOUR QUESTIONS. It is also more straightforward to respond to questions when we are standing in front side of you then to later email us.

  1. Sitting in my own car

We sit in my own 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 funny updates with the newest filters (recently the bunny is the best.) Inevitably I become sitting in my own car longer than I should when I’m (still) playing Hamilton and trying away my most useful (browse worst) rap abilities. That reminds me! Anyone filling out the Quick Takes yet? Remember, quick, sweet, and just be YOU! This is not a trick.

  1. Eating local but drinking Starbucks

Have any good restaurant recommendations that aren’t Chipotle? Send them our way! We want to explore cities and learn about where your home is. Understanding where you come from, helps us understand the job. We need to get a feel for the community and experience that which you experience on a daily basis. I tried an incredible Greek place last week that was in an entirely random location…thanks Yelp!
