I went to a small-town high school too in the outskirts of Victoria, BC, where I assume many kids went off to become mechanics or something. Even if the counselors don't have much info, go online to the "future/perspective students" part of the college/university websites. The online application process in Canada is really easy so no worries. While at McGill I encountered some really helpful counselors as well as some really terrible ones that were clueless or just didn't care. In anycase, you'll need to learn to be more independent to survive because you really can't count on the system most of the time. Best of luck!
Don't listen to her. Do what you want to do. Not what others tell you do.
In the words of Arnold Schwarzenegger (I might make some errors )"trust yourself be who you want to be not what but who I'm talking about not what your parents or your teachers want you to be but who you want to be do what makes you happy.dont listen to the naysayers who say you cant do that it has never been done before I love it when people say you can't do this you can't do that it has never been done before because that means when I do it ill be the first one who has done it" so if it makes you happy go to college
Seriously? Almost sounds like a rural Midwest school district. But you should still pursue college.
So what if he can't spell it? Why the hell does it matter? It doesn't mean he's stupid. I bet he's a lot better at other things than you all are. Everyone is equally talented, just at different things. He's obviously pretty damn smart if he's the first person to go to college from his high school in so long! Seriously, people, think before you speak. Remember that everything you do and say has a consequence.
Guidance councilors are usually don't know what the he'll their talking about. Don't listen to her.
Well I knew if it didn't have commas it would be a run on, but I haven't been in school in a few years so I couldn't remember if there were any exceptions to it. I was an English whizz in HS but since I graduated I've lost all my knowledge. haha Thank you for that. Don't be rude, Muffin.
I think this is fake. I find it hard to believe it's been so long that NO ONE from your school has gone to college. And the counselors aren't supposed to throw that stuff out
At my school, they had a separate counselor just for college advising. It's crazy and sad that they don't encourage their students to have aspirations after HS. Not everyone has to go to college, but everyone should have the resources available to try if they're so inclined. Fyl, OP. Fyl.
