Making Best Use of a High School Counselor

Question: Can you make some recommendations on how to make the best use of the high school guidance counselor?

My children attend a college prep school that seems to have good relationships with top colleges and universities. I have heard some parents say that the school counselor “really fought for” their child to gain admittance to their dream school. Can the school counselor really have an impact on a college’s decision? Does my child need to ingratiate herself with the counselor?
