Abstract: I have two very vague memories of my high school guidance counselor, the only counselor I remember from my 12 years in public school. Both memories are from my senior year. One is related to paperwork regarding a scholarship nomination I received. The other memory is around subtle messages from her that I very clearly understood as discouraging me from applying to my top college choice. Whether this came from her concerns about my academic abilities or my family's ability to pay for a private university education, I do not know (she was probably right on both counts).
