The key to a successful college interview, or any interview for that matter is preparation. A college will ask for an interview to see if a student would be successful amongst the students already enrolled in the school, as well as to assess if the prospective student’s objectives and interests fit in with what their school offers. While there are opportunities for a student to show their individuality on their application, the interview is a real opportunity to be a distinctive candidate.
The first step to prepare for your interview is to review potential interview questions. The types of questions that might be asked can be divided into four categories:
- Who are you?
- Why our college?
- What is important to you?
- What kind of thinker are you?
Being able to answer these questions will prepare you for your interview process by not only having outstanding answers, but also give you a boost of confidence when engaging in the overall process.
