Hey! It's a good idea to prepare for your college interview by reviewing common questions. Here are some typical college interview questions you might encounter:

1. Can you tell me about yourself?

2. What interests you about our college/university?

3. Why did you choose your intended major or field of study?

4. What are your academic strengths and weaknesses?

5. How do you spend your time outside of school? (extracurricular activities, hobbies, etc.)

6. Can you discuss a challenge you've faced and how you overcame it?

7. What are your goals for college and beyond?

8. How do you define success?

9. What current issue or global problem are you passionate about and why?

10. Can you tell me about a meaningful book or article you've read recently?

Remember, although you can prepare for these questions, it's essential to be genuine and let your personality shine through when you answer them. Practice your answers without memorizing them so that it sounds natural during the interview. Good luck!
