Hi there! It's great that you're preparing for your college interviews. From my experience with my own child, I can share a few tips that might help you stand out. First, make sure you're well-informed about the college and its programs. Show genuine enthusiasm and explain why the college is a good fit for you. Second, practice answering common interview questions and think of a few examples from your own life that can showcase your strengths and accomplishments. Third, don't forget to be yourself! Interviewers are looking for authentic, engaging students who can contribute to their campus community. Lastly, ask thoughtful questions about the college or the interviewer's experience there. This can demonstrate your curiosity and genuine interest in the school. Remember to arrive on time, dress appropriately, and send a thank-you note after the interview. Best of luck with your interviews, and I hope you find these tips helpful!
