Often college counselors ask parents to complete a "Parent Brag Sheet" to provide more information about the unique backgrounds of their student.  The counselor uses the information to tailor the college advising they provide to the student and family and they use it to shape the counselor letter of recommendation they write.

I propose creating a Parent Brag Sheet that will not only give feedback to the counselor, but will also automatically email the parent (and student) information about the unique needs of their student and family based on the responses.


Parent indicates that the student will be a first generation college student.

  • Automatic email sends a list of scholarships for first generation college students and other resources for first generation students.

Parent indicates that she is a military veteran.

  • Automatic email sends resources for the dependents of military veterans.

I have attached a sample Parent Brag Sheet for review.  I would love assistance on how to provide specific feedback for the subjective questions too.  Perhaps a keyword system could be used?

Have a doc or slides that you're collaborating in? Link it here.
