As an admissions staff, we criss-crossed the country this fall, meeting with students while visiting over 1,000 high schools. For many of us, visiting with students in their hometowns is a highlight of this job but it can be exhausting. Here’s how you know you’ve been on the road too long:
-Running low on toiletries, you go MacGyver with office supplies. Paper clips to hold your hair back? More than once.
-Your steady diet of comfort food – grilled cheese, French onion soup, buffalo tenders , etc. – has literally SPLIT your favorite business casual slacks.
-You meet someone in line at the Panera and your first question is “So what are you thinking about studying?”
-Your relationship with your GPS (Jennifer) has grown so rocky that you start giving her time-outs in the glove compartment.
It’s a good thing we’re home…
