College interview etiquette

Friday, September 02, 2011
Although an admissions interview is not required by most colleges and universities, it can never hurt to sit for one if the opportunity is provided.

An interview is a great way for the admissions officer to get to know you personally and adds another dimension to your profile beyond what can be gleaned from your essay and transcript. Use the interview as an opportunity to make a good and lasting impression.

How you look and act during an interview can certainly make a difference in how the admissions officer views you as a candidate for the freshman class. With regards to your appearance, boys should consider wearing a button-down shirt, tie, sports jacket, slacks and dress shoes. For girls, a blouse and skirt or simple pantsuit will be appropriate.

On the day of your interview, be sure to arrive at least 10 minutes early. You do not want to make a bad impression by showing up late and flustered. When speaking to the admissions officer, act natural and never try to be something you are not.

At the end of your interview, thank the admissions officer for his or her time and then repeat this courtesy when you return home, either by E-mail or handwritten note.ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800589487-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
