So tell me about yourself! Admissions Interview Preparation

It’s admissions interview season! Admissions interviews are normally optional and their significance in the application review process can vary from school to school. Busy students—who may not have much experience interviewing—might be tempted to skip this optional application component. But it’s another opportunity for them to explore whether a particular college is a good fit for them and gain comfort with these sorts of conversations. If a college recommends an admissions interview, it’s a good idea to do it.

We can help your student prepare! Our admissions interview preparation will help your student:

  • Learn how to respond to typical questions—and what those questions are.
  • Avoid common mistakes.
  • Know what to expect the day of the interview.
  • Appreciate what to do once the interview is over.

We can’t tell you what category your student would dominate in Jeopardy, what three people living or dead they’d love to meet, or what they would do with a million dollars. But we can help them feel more confident about handling these questions and whatever else comes their way at an admissions interview.
