 It’s Really A Small World After All. Have actually you ever wondered if the e-mail you addressed to Rice but sent to USC traveled involving the two schools? Did your high college counselor really used to sit close to your admission counselor at your ideal school? Are they actually still friends? How did the YouTube movie you designed for the senior school available home make it to your admission counselor who is interviewing you? Do counselors who work on rival schools go out!?

Higher education is a small world. This photo, from left to right, is Joel Hart (Pomona College), Meredith Britt ( brand New Jewish Community High class) and I also during the 2013 WACAC Conference. Joel, Meredith and I also all went to Vanderbilt even though we overlapped here, both as students and in the admission office, we never knew each other until we connected at work (Meredith and I worked at USC together) and at WACAC. If you are like most of my friends, you are chuckling as you say WACAC aloud. WACAC means Western Association of university Admission Counselors and is a regional part associated with nationwide Association of College Admission Counselors (NACAC) this is the overarching organization that is professional degree experts. Every summer, the different regional organizations meet for a three day conference on issues facing our occupation and how exactly we can increase the work that individuals do (while wearing name that is snazzy). In the autumn, NACAC has their conference which brings attendees from all over the world! This really is simply one of these associated with the expert development and ongoing training we undertake as brand new problems in university and admission counseling emerge and styles change.

Admission counselors also make connections by befriending other admission counselors within the geographic territories where we recruit. We bump into each other at university fairs, senior school visits as well as restaurants year after year as we all travel similar circuits. We exchange tales from the trail but in addition have actually significant conversations about how exactly to improve the quality of our work, handle our workload better and yes, speak about students. I happened to be when talking about an essay that had offended me personally having a colleague from another institution in which he immediately remembered reading ab muscles same essay. Since we’ve recruited in the exact same area of Texas for four years, i’ve additionally founded relationships with the senior high school counselors at the schools I see. We will touch base about certain students, both the good and also the bad, general trends that we’ve noticed and just random things that pop up. When we go back to a senior high school one of my favorite things is to ask a counselor how their pupils at USC are doing!
