According to Jason Koebler of “US News & World Report,” “A 2005 study by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) reported that the average public high school student got about 38 minutes of college advising per year from their guidance counselor, and a 2009 study by the National Center for Education Statistics said the average public school had 457 students per counselor.” What kind of college counseling is your student receiving at his / her high school?
Is your student’s high school guidance counselor giving your child the personal attention that he/she needs to gain admission to highly competitive universities? Is your student’s guidance counselor up to speed on the latest trends in competitive college admissions? Do they visit colleges and universities throughout the year? Are they burdened with job responsibilities that do not involve college counseling? These are all very important questions as you help your child navigate the college admissions process.
