Did you find your college advisors helpful when making your class schedule or did you feel that they mislead you?

They were absolutely helpful. However, you have to come prepared as well. They don't know you as well as you know yourself, and that's really what your schedule is going to come down to. So if you tell them you're interested in Psychology, they're going to sign you up for an introduction to psychology course. However, if you're typically bad in sciences and struggle, there's no way for them to know this without your input.

Basically, a counselor is as helpful as the information you provide them with. So come equipped with what your ideal schedule would look like, what your strengths are and what your weaknesses are and what your overall college/career goals are. If you do this, they'll be able to help you create a class schedule that's perfect for you.

Also, as an added tip, don't be afraid to ask questions. Ask how students typically do in a given class. Ask what other students in your major typically choose for electives. The more conversational the meeting, the more helpful it will be to you.
