Although many colleges do not require an interview, some colleges still encourage applicants to participate in a personal face-to-face interview. Some interviews are with admissions officers while others may be scheduled with alumni of the colleges to which you are applying. The interview is an excellent opportunity to learn more about a college and to allow the admissions officer to learn more about you. Once you decide to schedule an interview, you should prepare carefully for it. The College Essay Whiz offers you the opportunity to practice in a “mock” interview and critique.
Take a look at the suggestions and practice questions.
