Ms. Garcia is one of the nicest administrators that I have met. She always says hi to me in the hallways and whenever I need advice, I know that I can go talk to her
She sincerely wants to help you, but doesn't always know how. Came to her regarding mental health-she didn't do much but let u rant. haven't seen her since school started, haven't talked to her since. i don't think she made any effort to contact me either. deals with the 7th and 8th grade and only that - she hasn't said how are u or anything.
Although I understand why some people may like Ms. Garcia, in my personal experiences with her she was downright mean and rude. In 7th grade we somehow got off on the wrong foot, and she lectured me on multiple occasions, both in front of people and inside her office. As a counselor, I think she should be focused on helping people, not judging them and lecturing them. In terms of the high school admissions process, she seemed very confused about the procedure. Overall, completely unhelpful.
Ms. Garcia is a VERY VERY VERY nice counselor, and I don't get how anyone could ever not like her!!!
A very happy person overall, never gets angry. As a counselor she's not the best but she is a good picker-upper.
She's the worst counselor. But a really sweet person!! (but what good is that when you're trying to get into college)
For some reason, she gets angry and lectures students. She is also unreachable by email/phone, so you better make sure to not leave anything to the last minute.
i love ms. garcia. although she kinda bases different scholarship applications on your race. but besides that i think shes a great person =)
ehhhhh.....i don't know but i think i may drown in her sweetness....its just so....overwhelming.
She is possibly the worst counselor ever. She suggested a school for me based on what she thought were my racial preferences. Steer clear.
Ms. Garcia is so nice and she makes you feel better about yourself, expecially when it comes to college, though i don't know how on-target she is.
ugg. she's nice but she's way too cheesy. she treats me like im five
She is a really nice person, but my friend went to talk about a problem and she said "mediation" before hearing him out.
horrible. i have her as just a counslor, not for college or anything, and she constantly thinks im someone else, and talks to me about the someone's problems. it's really weird.
Ms. Garcis deems soo nice and all but she takes sides.... she judges ppl b5 knowing them!!!
If she's your counselor, forget it! Best do everything yourself, make sure you meet deadlines and be on top of her to meet them (not the other way around).
doesn't do anything you couldn't do more efficently by yourself & is notorious for forgetting to send recs and transcripts.
niceness has nothing to do with being an effective college counselor in a gifted school... she actually was the reason my upenn admission was revoked no insight
she is very nice, but rigid beyond believe when it comes to making appointments - never avaiable, totally useless as college counselor, beware!
A really sweet person. Always willing to lend an ear to a student in distress. Really helpful and just all around pleasant to be around!
