College Planning Guide

Tagged as “guidance counselor”

What's the first thing admission counselors look at in deciding if you have what it takes to succeed in college? Your test scores? No. Your essay? No. Your recommendations? No. Give up?


Does your guidance counselor know you by name? Does he or she know you want to go to a four-year college? If you answered "yes" to both questions, congratulations.* You've already begun planning for college in the best possible way.

* Did you answer "no"? Then run, don't walk, to make an appointment with your guidance counselor now!
