How should I approach college interviews?

Hey everyone! As a junior, I've been hearing about the importance of college interviews. What should I expect and how can I prepare? Are there any common interview questions that I should be aware of? Thanks for your help!

Hey there! College interviews can be a great way to showcase your personality and interests to the admissions team. It's natural to be a little nervous, but with some preparation, you should do just fine. First, do some research about the school you're interviewing for, as interviewers appreciate when students display genuine interest and knowledge about their institution. Second, be ready to discuss your extracurricular activities, academic achievements, and future goals. Reflect on your experiences and how they have shaped you as a person. Practice answering common interview questions, such as: - Tell me about yourself. - Why are you interested in our college? - What do you plan to major in, and why? - What are your strengths and weaknesses? - Tell me about a time you faced a challenge and how you overcame it. - What do you like to do for fun? Remember, college interviews are also an opportunity for you to ask questions about the school and learn more about the community. Good luck, and I'm sure you'll do great!
