When I first interviewed for an admission position eight years ago, I remember my head of school saying that the role would be exciting, fast-paced and intense during the peak times for “about half the year,” but then the other times would be less hectic and demanding.
Many of us chose the admission profession because we enjoy the constant buzz of prospective families streaming through our offices, each with their fair share of interesting stories to tell, thoughtful questions to ask, and genuine desire to find just the right fit.
