    I’m interested in requesting a remote counselor but only if the experience is generally better than staying local.

    I’m interested in what the experience was/is like moving from local counseling to remote counseling. How did the two differ? Was the remote counselor more responsive? Was the remote counselor more knowledgeable? Did you receive any backlash by requesting a remote counselor? Etc.

    Any insight is greatly appreciated.

    We were offered one, but we were told it would make our intake appointment delayed until September (instead of the July we were offered back in March.) I don’t know if that delay applies if you’re switching to them, but clearly they’re busier.

    Remote or local, your goal is to get the quickest appointment, if you are prepared for qualification. To that end, I would use NACA chat feature and also call local office on weekly/biweekly basis to squeeze you in against any cancellations. Other option is to attend the ATD event and get done with qualification at a single shot! Best wishes to you, Pratik

    Hi KlassyMcKlass,
    I have had both, local and remote, I found that it all depends on the MC. To me, my remote MC was and is better, but I met her through an ATD event and stuck with her. She was very informative, extremely helpful, and knowledgeable. I would have been okay with my local one, but personality wise we did not mesh well. So at the end of the day, it’s up to you and your timeline. Still, with any MC, you have to stay on top of your file with emails and phone calls because they do get very busy. Hope this information helps you with your decision. 🙂
