How do I prepare for college admissions interviews?

Hey everyone! I'm a junior and I'm starting to think about college admissions interviews. I'm pretty nervous about this part of the process and I'm not sure how to prepare. Does anyone have any tips or resources for getting ready for interviews? I'd really appreciate any help!

Hi there! I can understand why you might feel nervous about college admissions interviews, but don't worry, with some preparation, you'll do great! My child went through the same process not too long ago. First, research the college you're interviewing for and be ready to explain why you'd be a good fit there. Make a list of your accomplishments, extracurricular activities, and anything that sets you apart from other applicants – this will help you showcase your strengths during the interview. Practice answering common interview questions with a friend or family member, and don't forget to prepare some thoughtful questions to ask the interviewer as well. Dress professionally and be punctual for your interview. Remember to be yourself, maintain eye contact, and speak confidently. Lastly, follow up with a thank you email to your interviewer, expressing your gratitude for their time and reiterating your interest in the college. Good luck, and I'm sure you'll do well!
