Why should families care about the counselor/recommendation packet? 

Counselor packet, junior packet, senior profile, or counselor questionnaire all refer to the form that counselors or teachers use when collecting information to write a student's recommendation letter, which is critical to the college application process. 


Common misconceptions among students:

  • It is not important

  • My counselor/teacher knows what I am doing; there is no need to provide additional information

  • There is no need to organize my information, my counselor knows what to highlight

  • I don't want to repeat myself, so there is no need to go into detail about my experiences


Key points that parents need to know about your child's counselor packet:

  • Almost all universities, especially top schools, require counselor and teacher recommendations

  • An outstanding recommendation WILL HELP a student stand out

  • Your child might only have met their counselor once or twice throughout their high school years. Therefore, counselors rely heavily on the materials provided in the packet to write the recommendation letter

  • The packet will sometimes ask for parents' input and it is vital to know what the recommender is looking for

The comments and suggestions I received made so much sense, and after my revisions, I was definitely feeling better about what I was presenting on the page. Thanks again to your team for the thorough and insightful feedback, and for all of your time and help!"
