What high school students want
from Inside Higher Ed
Remember how at one point it was kind of cool when a guide on a college tour walked backward? That day is gone, said four counselors at a session at the annual meeting of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers. The problem is that everyone does it, so it doesn't stand out to any student (or parent) anymore, at least after visiting a second college with such guides. The counselors were gathered to provide insights into what high school students (in this case from California high schools with high college-going rates) want when they are interacting with college admissions officers. The counselors acknowledged that students are fickle.
