University admission has been my career for almost eight years, but prior to leaping onto this side regarding the desk, we invested two years being a high college counselor in my house state of Louisiana. We was never ever formally the school’s ‚college counselor,‘ so I was spared from having to compose hundreds upon a huge selection of letters of suggestion. But during those 2 yrs, due to my role as moderator of the learning student Council, I was in a position to get to know a quantity of seniors who had been going right on through the admission process. As we prepare to mail out decisions regarding our scholarship decisions, which I am sure will leave a great number of students dissatisfied, confused, and questioning our judgment, a specific meeting with one of my favorite Student Council members is fresh on my mind.
In the interests of this tale, let’s call him Scott. Scott was the superstar of our school. He had been Class President each year during high school, he was the pep rally emcee, and I would go well over the word limit that this blog allows if I were to continue listing all his accomplishments. To top it well, he had been just a kid that is incredibly likeable. We reached know Scott real well since I relied on him for so much of what our Student Council was asked to do. Scott had the final amount of our school day off, in order my day was winding down, he’d often come by my office to hold out.
