Chalk Talk: Staying In Touch
Students are often hesitant to contact college admissions representatives, or, on the flipside, some students will contact representatives with no real goal in mind other than establishing contact. You shouldn’t be afraid to reach out to an admissions representative (that’s part of their job) but you should always have a clear goal in mind. It’s a good idea, after meeting with a representative or touring a campus, to send a Thank-You note, which can be an email. This is a great time to establish contact but don’t labor the point; your goal is to say thanks so say thanks. It’s fine to mention how much you like the school, or what have you, but don’t send them too lengthy of an email. A few sentences is fine. Similarly, reaching out for the first time can be scary, but it helps if you have a specific question in mind. This also means they have to write you back, and you may be able to keep this conversation going, but again, the point is really to get answers to your questions and simply to establish that contact.
