Study: School counselors boost students' college, financial aid chances
from Education Week
Meeting one-on-one with a school counselor to discuss college admission or financial aid makes a big difference in students' futures, tripling the chance they'll attend college, doubling the chance that they'll attend a four-year college, and increasing by nearly seven times the likelihood that they'll apply for financial aid, according to a study. The analysis by the National Association for College Admission Counseling is one of the few that measure the impact school counselors have on students' lives after high school graduation.
