Express Service: Junior Packet/Counselor Questionnaire Prep

(1-hour workshop + 3-hour editing)

 

 

1. Why Junior Packet/Senior Profile/Counselor Questionnaires?  Why it is important for the counselors to know/understand the student? 

Junior packet, senior profile, or counselor questionnaire (high school college packet, student self-evaluation, etc) all refer to the form that counselors and teachers use as a reference to write their recommendation letters, which is critical to the college application process. It is commonly completed by both the parents and the students, in order to provide comprehensive information about the student from various perspectives.

 

Common misconceptions among students:

  • It is not important

  • My counselor will write my recommendation, I have nothing to do with it

  • There is no need to organize my information, my counselor will know what is important and what to highlight

  • I don't want to repeat myself, so there is no need to go into details

 

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

  • Almost all US universities, especially top schools, will require counselor 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 through the packet to write their letters, sometimes they even quote directly from the packet

  • The packet will sometimes ask for parents' input and it is vital to know what the counselors are looking for, which is NOT just a comprehensive bio of your child's upbringing
