The Casual College Interview

One mom spoke to me about her concerns regarding college admission.  Her son had one college that he had his heart set on!  She wanted to know if an interview is important, because it was mentioned in the application form.

I recommend an interview, but an easy-casual-natural interview.  Unless you are trying for a very selective, elite school, an interview is a casual portion of the college visit, not something formal and scary.  It's just "frosting on the cake" for an application.  All you need to do is visit the school - an official visit through the admissions office.  Part of an official visit is talking to the admission adviser.  THAT is the interview.  They are usually nice, NICE people in admissions.  Try to get the visit early - perhaps the last week of September or the first week of October.  That way, when they read your application, they will remember him, and it will positively impact their decisions.  Spend a LONG time on campus.  Try to have your son stay overnight for a senior overnight preview.
