How can I connect with an admissions counselor?

I'm feeling a bit lost and overwhelmed with the college application process, and I think talking to an admissions counselor might help. But I'm not sure how to reach out to them or what the best way is to make a connection. Can anyone share their experiences or give me some advice on how to approach this?

Reaching out to admissions counselors can be very helpful, and they are usually more than happy to assist you! Here's what I recommend:

1. Visit the college's admissions website and look for the contact information of an admissions counselor assigned to your region or high school.

2. Send them a concise and polite email, introducing yourself and mentioning that you're a prospective student interested in their college.

3. Ask if they have time for a phone call or virtual meeting to discuss any questions you have about the application process or their college.

4. Be prepared with specific questions or concerns you'd like to address.

Remember, admissions counselors are there to help you navigate this process. Don't hesitate to reach out and ask for guidance!
