What kind of questions can I expect on a college interview?

Hi! I have an interview with Northwestern in a few days. I've never had a college interview before, so I'm not really sure what to expect. How should I prepare? What questions should I expect, especially from Northwestern? And how much does this factor into my application?

Thanks!

Hi there! I have not personally done an interview for Northwestern, but you may be able to dig some information up online. Typically with college interviews, they are just an additional portion of your essay, and can be thought about as an "extra" letter of recommendation from your interviewer! A good interview can certainly help you get in but a weak one won't hurt you too, too much.

My parents told me parts of what they could ask for I am not in college yet, but I can give you on what I know. For a college interview, of course you would need your high school report card or diploma from your high school (proving that you pass and have more trust in what you would like to learn) they could ask about it and to know what your expectation is.

Check out this website I found for possible interview questions for northwestern.

I hope this helped and good luck on your interview! =)

Sorry if this did not help...
