I've been an Admissions Counselor for 3 months now g oing on 4...

A student came in with his unofficial transcripts wanting to apply to our fall19 term.

Shockingly the student was not meeting requirements

Student: "its not my fault my counselor did not place me in the right classes! I was miss advised!!!!"

*me eyeing transcript*

Me: "my dude were you missed advised when you failed the required classes the you were placed in?"

*student stares at me*

*I stare at the student and back at the transcript*

Student: "you right"


I leave my job with either a stupid smile in my face. Or dreading my existence full of anxiety knowing I'm a shit counselor and will probrably get fired for miss advising a student and adding units wrong.

no in between.

So, did he meet requirements, or not?

He was never placed in a handful of required class in addition to failing the required classes he was enrolled in.


So what do you think?




The answer is No.

So he is on academic suspension? I failed AP first time around and could still register for classes

Oh man... I didn't even know that was possible. How can a student be placed in the wrong required classes?

high school graduate applying for admission for fall 2019.

It happens. High School counselors are human too. Sometimes its an honest mistake and or it happens out of sheer stupidity/ ignorance. The latter is most often the case. But you have to keep in mind. If a student/ their parent does not express while they are in high school that they want to go to a University after they graduate High School there is little the counselor can do. There is a specific curriculum a student must finish to meet the minimum eligibility requirements. Said curriculum differs from the high school graduation requirements. Some schools are moving to push the minimum university admission curriculum to be the minimum high school graduation curriculum. I expressed this to one of the counselors I worked with and she said, and I quote, "70%% percent of our students would not graduate if that were implemented."

nearly spat out my coffee.

Also I am warming up to the idea of charter schools. Especially here in California.

-One of the interesting things about my job is seeing how much the counselors differ from each school I work at. One of the areas I work at has some top notch counselors. The other areas not so much. There are one or two who I have only worked with once or twice who I really respect. I have even reached out to them for clarification on a couple of things.
