Blunt Professor's Assessment
Recently I've been told that one of the best assessments I can give is a brutally honest one. Basically, instead of beating around the bush and trying to keep the aspirant's (student or otherwise) feelings, dreams, and fantasies in check, I will give them the blunt and honest truth about either their work, their direction, classes, or general student guidance. Will you become the next Descartes? No, you probably won't. Will you become the next Bill Gates? No, you most definitely won't. Definitely not with a 2.85 GPA you won't. I will give you a real impression of things to come without telling you that if you try hard enough, you too can become a demigod with an infinite bank account.
This is not the kind of advice you'd get from a student counselor. This is not the service for everybody. This is a service being created by unexpected demand. I will happily provide it... but you should seriously consider whether this kind of assessment or something a little nicer... which I also provide. ;)
