Your college counselor
Guidance and support throughout the process. We chose to be college counselors because we like helping students! Please take advantage of the resources our office provides to you.

Help building your college list. We use our knowledge and experience to make recommendations so that your list is comprehensive and balanced.

An open door and an open mind. Support for every student and acknowledgement of each student as an individual with a unique personality, talents, background, and interests. We are always willing to listen to any question, frustration, fear, success or disappointment.

Honesty. Data and experience help your college counselor understand which colleges and universities are realistic choices and which might or might not be a good fit. Be prepared to receive honest feedback from us with respect to your list, and remember that this is not a judgment of your intelligence, talent, or value as a human being.
Expectations

Current: Information about events and deadlines. Remember to check your email and your Class Folder regularly.


Timeliness: Timely transmission of your transcript and letters of recommendation when you make your request through Naviance.


Resources: Opportunities to connect with colleges through college visits to Baylor, the annual College Fair, College Forum, Case Studies Program and other events. Please take advantage of these opportunities to meet and talk with admissions counselors.


Expertise: Up-to-date knowledge and information. We visit college campuses regularly and attend conferences with other college and admissions counselors. This enables us to provide you with updated information and well-informed opinions of colleges and universities you may be considering.


Self-Assessment
Understanding yourself is essential to the college search process, but it's easier said than done. There are aspects of yourself you may not have given much thought to until now, but asking yourself the right questions and really thinking through the answers is one of the best starting points for exploring colleges. How else will you know what to look for in a college environment?

Everyone experiences stress in high school (and beyond). It's important to learn to recognize when you are experiencing stress and to develop some tools for managing it before you get to college.

Baylor's Office of College Counseling encourages students to begin taking the ACT and/or SAT during their junior year, and to complete standardized testing during the first semester of senior year. It is helpful for students to talk with a college counselor about which standardized tests they should take and when they should take them. All 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students will take the PSAT during a school day in October (and will be automatically registered for it by Baylor)

Students serious about college athletics should familiarize themselves with the differences between NAIA and the three NCAA divisions, and should give a lot of thought to the amount of time and energy they are willing to devote to their sport in college. Remember that athletics scholarships aren't the only way to pay for college.
