Nothing is more important than doing your very best academically through the end of your junior year. The single most important factor that colleges across the country weigh when assessing your application credentials is your grade point average. They all want to see your academic performance at the very least remaining stable, ideally showing an upward trend. Even though you are probably looking longingly to the end of the semester, now is the time to marshal all your energy and sprint to the end!
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.
