Ace Your College Admissions Interview in 60 Seconds
- My best suggestion is to be yourself. Remember, the interview is just going to be a conversation and the interviewer will help steer that conversation
- Start off with a firm handshake and introduce yourself by name
- Make eye contact and try to give examples in your responses (so instead of saying “I like science,” give an example of your favorite lab or discuss a project that was engaging)
- Come prepared with 2-3 questions that you can’t find on Google. A few good questions are: ” “What is your favorite thing about X College?” or “If you could change something about X College, what would it be and why?”
If you want to do some extra prep, here are 15 specific questions you should be ready for.
