Darnell has successfully completed all nine of his applications with the assistance of a school mentor and myself. He is relieved to have completed all of them. For the rest of the semester he requested that I help him with his senior project that he has to do for his school. We will start working on this at our next meeting.
It's nice that Mateo lets me know how exactly I can help him in the application process (helping him find colleges). It feels rewarding that I can help him out with something to make his whole process smoother.
Darnell took the initiative to continue working on his applications when he was unable to meet with me when his school was closed.
As we finished all applications half-way through this session, we spent time talking about life. It was a great opportunity to get to know Saphari and share our experiences with each other
This was a great opportunity to get to know her better, such as her parents' occupation and her goals in college.
I felt like I could connect better with Mateo since we were working together to solve a common problem, and I really liked having a conversation with him on what he really likes in a college.
We completed the kutztown application. It was a little discouraging at first because it said that Darnell already had an account for all the emails that he had but he never made one. We eventually had to create a whole different email which we will be using for all college applications. Overall, I feel it was a productive meeting.
