The College Interview Workshop
The process of selecting and applying to colleges involves more than visiting campuses, taking SATs and SAT prep classes, and completing the application process. Often what stands between you and acceptance to the university/college of your choice is the personal interview. The all-important, final aspect of "the interview "can be the deciding factor that separates you from the many other qualified applicants seeking that same acceptance letter.
When the admissions director asks you to talk about yourself and your reasons for attending that college, will your answer be a version of a thousand other answers, or will your response make the admission person remember and recommend you for admission?
A college interview is like a job interview. You must be prepared to describe your strengths, answer questions, and display a confident and capable personality. The kind of impression you make depends on how well prepared you are for your admissions interview. If you are prepared, your college interview won't be scary or intimidating.
The College Interview Workshop, a 90 minute class packed with information and strategies designed to improve the quality of your interview, will groom you for the various aspects of the one-on-one interview. Because colleges are inundated with qualified applicants, it is more necessary than ever to separate yourself from the crowd.
