Adding a Counselor in common app
Answered

The school I study in currently doesn't have a counselor and the principal is not very approachable for me. Can I add a teacher as my counselor to add my transcripts and a LOR? or can my Counselor in app be from previous school if she can access my transcripts?

And also, I have attended 2 schools , 9th and 10th in one school and 11th and 12th in another. Who is supposed to add my 9th-10th transcripts? the counselor itself or the teacher I add from that school.

Just to tell, I have added the Principal from previous school as my Teacher recommender as she was really close to me. but for counselor i am confused whom i should add.

Please help.

You should be an international student. The answer is very simple. Tell any of your teachers to be your counselor. It doesn't matter in what class he taught you. Give him your transcripts that are needed and he will upload them. He also has to write a recommendation, so make sure you find a familiar teacher. Good luck. And if you need more help, don't hesitate to ask for it.
