Preparing for an Interview
Although many schools do not give you the opportunity to have an interview with an admissions officer, there are some that require or suggest it. Also, many schools offer alumni interviews so that you can speak with a graduate of the school in which you are interested.
You also have several informal possibilities that will allow you to speak with college representatives. An admissions officer may come to your school to speak about his or her college, and you may find that to be a perfect opportunity to help you stand out in a positive way. Or you may visit a school and speak with an admissions officer or a student representative.
All of these interactions will make an impression, and it is wise to prepare for them. I will help you prepare with sample questions, a mock interview, and tips about how to do your best. Think about making an appointment with me to prepare for an interview!
