Hey there! It's great that you're starting to prepare for college interviews early. From my experience with my child, I can tell you that practice is key. Start by researching common interview questions and practicing your answers. Some commonly asked questions include: Why are you interested in this college? What do you plan to major in and why? What extracurricular activities do you participate in? How do you handle stress or challenges? Tell me about a time you worked in a team or demonstrated leadership. It's helpful to explore your own experiences and think about how they relate to these questions. Be ready to share genuine experiences and show your personality. Additionally, make sure to research the specific college and program you're interviewing for, as having that knowledge will help you tailor your answers. Lastly, practice with friends, family, or even a mirror to build your confidence and improve your communication skills. Remember to always be yourself and let your passion shine through. Good luck!
