Top 5 Things Admission Counselors Do On The Road

Throughout the fall of each school 12 months, I travel…a great deal. We wake up early, catch flights across the country, and search the Hertz parking lot for rental cars with back-up cameras. During this time, we’m seldom at my desk, I’m meeting a great deal of awesome students, and learning about the cool and exciting things pupils are doing. However when I’m not on an airplane or at the car that is rental, here’s just what I’m probably doing…

  1. Interviews and Receptions and tall class visits

Check your highschool’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’ll also be Discover that is doing USC on campus and through the United States and abroad.

  1. Hoarding Pens

If there is a very important factor you should bring with you a school that is high, it’s a pen. We will supply something to write on, but we do not provide something to write with. We give some pretty information that is useful these visits, so it is generally helpful to jot down 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 we have been on the way, this is our central mission. We make an effort to answer all associated with the question you have while we are in your town. SO, the piece that is best of advice I can provide you is ASK YOUR QUESTIONS. It is also easier to respond to questions whenever we are standing in front of you then to email us later.

  1. Sitting in my own vehicle

I sit in my car…a lot… Sometimes it feels like I save money time within my car than We do in the particular high school. Often I’ll check Facebook (I’m old) or Snapchat, and make some funny updates with the newest filters (lately the bunny is my personal favorite.) Inevitably I wind up sitting in my own car much longer than I should as I’m (still) listening to Hamilton and trying down my best (browse worst) rap skills. That reminds me! Anyone filling out of 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 like to explore metropolitan areas and discover about where you reside. Understanding where you come from, helps us understand the job. We would like to get a feel for your community and experience that which you experience on a daily basis. We tried a great Greek place last week that was in an entirely random location…thanks Yelp!
