The word “counselor” may seem foreign to you now that you’re a UC Berkeley student, but remember back in high school when they seemed to be the only thing preventing you from suffocating under a pile of college applications and brochures?

Today’s high schoolers may not have that opportunity. The formerly mandated counseling program for public schools has (surprise, surprise) been cut, so students are turning to CollegeWeekLive.com to fill the void.

Called the “the world’s biggest virtual college fair,” the site allows prospective students not only to browse various colleges and participate in interactive seminars on admissions strategies, but also chat live with counselors and admissions representatives.

The site also allows high school students to chat with current university students, which means you have the power to influence impressionable potential freshman. Or just mess with them.

Such a great insight, into where the infrastructure of everything gov.’t funded is going. Positive, though it hurts.
