Two templates give students the opportunity to help advisor write mid-year comments. Reflect on school's mission, character building, personality traits, co-curriculars, leadership, academic strengths/weaknesses, and goals for remainder of year. Completed student template provides advisor with ample information to compose an accurate profile. Then, letter template delivers a rough draft version to the student for further revision/feedback. Last, final draft of advisee comment is submitted to administration. Students take ownership and ensure accuracy, while parents recognize child's authentic voice, and college office appreciates comprehensive info.
