Our seminar course is currently focusing on 2 application elements: The College Essay and Requesting Teacher of Recommendation Letters. Throughout the month of May, we will focus on application logistics such as: types of applications, opening the Common Application, and developing application lists.
As college counselors, we use several resources to help us develop each rising senior’s counselor letter of recommendation. One piece we reference is feedback from parents. We joke with students, “While you may be shy expressing all of your wonderful qualities, your parents LOVE sharing everything about their daughter.” The Parent Questionnaire will be emailed to junior year parents in May. If you could, please take a few minutes to fill out the form and email it to your daughter’s college counselor at your convenience.
