I’m a senior in college now helping my younger sister (she’s currently a junior in high school) with the process. She wants to seek out a private advisor for the application and financial aid process since she’s applying to a lot more competitive schools than I did, but we don’t have the money for that, so I’m hoping to be as helpful as possible.
What does a paid college advisor usually actually do? I’m thinking of just making her a weekly plan of tasks for throughout the summer and first semester senior year. Is there more to it than that? I guess I’m just wondering what the structure of working with an advisor is, so I can help her as efficiently as possible.
thanks in advance!
