Acing your College Interview
ACE Kids K-12 / High School/College Prep -
Interviewing with alumni or administration staff at a college can be a vital part of the application process. Not only does it demonstrate your interest, but it can also increase your acceptance chances. Learn what you need to know from someone with almost 25 years of experience interviewing prospective students. Leave with a better understanding of common interview formats, likely questions, and good subjects to share with your interviewer. Discuss appearance, mannerisms, and ways to ensure your responses are engaging and exciting rather than lackluster. Get your questions answered and nerves calmed.
