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

I've had very mixed experiences with college advisors. When I came in as a freshman, my major was undecided and I had an advisor who was assigned specifically to undecided students. Unfortunately, because she was dealing with so many students who had such different interests, it was really hard for her to help me out with the questions that I had. I ended up speaking more with the advisors for the majors that I was interested in, as they were more specialized and far better equipped to answer the questions that I had. Once I officially switched my major, it was so much easier to meet with a specialized advisor and get my questions answered. Because the English program is pretty small at my school, my advisor is able to get to know all of his students and is really great at giving individualized advice. However, I still recommend doing your own research and going into your meetings with an idea of what you want, as you'll definitely know yourself better than your advisor could.
