The College Interview

A college interview is a chance to show that you're more than just test scores and grades. It's an exchange of information—you get an opportunity to learn about the college first hand and the college learns about you. There are different types of interviews and they can last anywhere from 30-60 minutes.  The type of interview you will have depends on the school and the program/major that you plan to pursue.  You could find yourself interviewing with an admissions officer, a student, or an alumnus.  Use these links to help you prepare for your college interview. The better prepared you are, the more relaxed you will be which will allow you to highlight and show off your talents, skills and the best YOU!  Good Luck!
