Chipotle? Pizza? Read More Applications?

Day 8:30 AM: I get to my office (lets be honest, cubicle) to start my work. We start my outlook, read new email messages, and react to nearly all of them (some will need some attention that is extra in the day.) I’m very close to finishing my one cup of coffee for your day.

8:45-9:00 AM: I open three windows: 1) the internet, 2) our very own USC internal database, and 3) my grade point average (GPA) calculator. We use the internet to see the Common Application, our database to keep documents of everything, and just because it sounds, the GPA calculator to determine GPAs. I am always happy once I see a complete academic history. USC asks applicants to record their classes and grades by topic (English, math, foreign language, social sciences etc…) therefore so it’s easy to understand the classes a student took in ninth through eleventh grade. I can also see the grades in a clear and way that is organized. We begin reading applications.

9:01 AM: Someone just started discussing fantasy football. This immediately catches my attention (I was eliminated in the first round of playoffs after spending the entire season as number one in my league of sixteen players…just sayin…) I struggle to stay focused but my will power is still strong this early in the morning as a first time player.

9:02 AM 12:00 PM: I continue reading… the first thing we look at in a pupil’s application is their first and second choice major (primarily because it’s the first thing I see when I start an application.) I then browse academics, including standardized test scores and the history that is academic. Next we’ll examine each of the qualitative aspects: short answer concerns, essays, and activity section (helpful hint: always spell out acronyms wherever you use them. We don’t know most of the programs available in your school or community.) I’ll put the application up with letter of recommendation. Some students will even have information that is additional interview reports, which I’ll always read final. While I’m reading everything, I’ll take down notes as I go. A number of us will read the whole application, then take down notes, but personally, I enjoy write as I get. We find I’m more thorough that real way even though it might have a bit longer general. Generally speaking, my notes will describe each portion i have read drawing a conclusion that can help me understand the student when I come back to the application later.

9:45 AM: we think about when and what I’m likely to eat for lunch.

10:30 AM: Chipotle? Pizza?

11:30 AM: Or can I be healthy and consume a salad? Decisions decisions….


12:45 PM: straight back to applications…. this pupil is recognized by me! I met with them when I happened to be visiting a school in Virginia. He told me he was going to write about a scheduled program he began at their school…turned out great!

Sometime within the afternoon: I’ll answer the phone, respond to emails as they can be found in (we try to respond to you as soon as I can,) and take a few water breaks.

4:00/30 I’ll try to summary reading applications for the day and spend the final hour doing whatever else requires tending to (like writing this blog.) Sometimes I’ll have a conference in the or afternoon so this portion of my day can vary in timing morning. But on a day that is typical I invest shmoop.pro this time around during the end.

5:00 PM: Time to go home and play with my new puppy. She’s the one in the photo just in case you were wondering! 🙂

Counselor on Contact

It’s morning and I’m arriving to work wednesday. Instead of heading to my office, I head to your Admission Center because I am ‘on contact.’ Exactly What does which means that exactly? Well, about once a thirty days, it’s my responsibility to sit into the admission center, supply the admission presentations, and answer any questions from students who stop by. ( it means we have a reason to get Coffee Bean since it’s in the same building.)

8:00 a.m. After grabbing my café vanilla, I do a quick email scan and check my teeth before going into the presentation room. Since today is Wednesday, I gives the 8:30 am and 12:30 pm Meet USC presentations. This presentation that is one-hour our many comprehensive program providing you with a USC overview along with information on the admission process. Perhaps you’ve been to 1! Generally, there will be a lot of concerns, mostly from parents, until pupils feel more comfortable (don’t hesitate to ask questions, I’m literally there all to talk for your requirements. day)

9:30 a.m. When the presentations are over I’ll return to the counselor desk and guests take a 90-minute tour with a student tour-guide. Our trip guides are incredibly eager and prepared to communicate with students that are prospective families. I always chat with our trip guides and admission ambassadors. They’re usually really students that are involved often reveal about their internships and projects, so it’s helpful to hear their perspective. A lot of times, they are a big way to obtain information for all of us on current pupil life.

10:00 a.m. Between presentations, I will be typically jumping between talking to students that are prospective parents and doing whatever work is required of me personally that day. That means reviewing applications and answering emails during this particular time of the year. Because your admission that is specific counselor not be around, the therapist assigned to the Admission Center for the day is there to field any concerns. Some times are super busy and a line builds up, other days are light and I can spend several minutes that are extra to students, but I’ll constantly make sure to be helpful and solution as many concerns as I can.

12:00ish. I run outside to grab a quick lunch when I can. The closest choices to the Admission Center are typical the accepted places within the Tutor Campus Center like Lemonade, Panda Express and Seeds Marketplace. Today, I think I’ll go with Lemonade’s avocado and tomato salad and some pesto pasta (when you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out).

3:00 p.m. Every once in a while, students will ask me if we can talk privately at the counselor desk. If there’s not just a line, We’m happy to help and respect your confidentiality, but pupils should recognize that this just isn’t an appointment and I also likely won’t be able to spend lots of time in one-on-one conversations away from the main desk. If the information is highly relevant to the job and you also would really like those reviewing it to help keep it in mind, we will always recommend that you call or email your admission that is specific counselor.

5:00 p.m. Time to close the Admission Center. Sometimes it’s an exhausting day and other times it’s pretty quiet, but either way, being the therapist on contact allows us to be able to interact with students and families and really get to use the ‘counselor’ part of our name. It’s always nice to know you helped someone get an improved knowledge of the admission process.

So, ethical of the tale: us; we are happy to help if you have general questions about applying to USC or your application and you’ll be on campus, please stop by and see! In fact, while on contact, it is our job to help! However, if there’s one thing private you want to discuss, or you believe you need time for a more explanation that is in-depth conversation, call your admission therapist; these are typically also happy to help and can dedicate the appropriate amount of time to your questions.
