While most colleges do NOT require a campus interview requesting an interview with the admissions office staff is a great chance to gain more insights into each college/university you are contemplating -- and also a great chance to make your case for why you should be admitted.
While college-bound students cannot predict every question a college admissions officer might ask it's a good idea to get familiar with some of the most common questions asked.
But don't stop at just reviewing the questions; instead prepare (but do not memorize) responses to these common questions. And take it even further by using these questions as a basis for conducting a mock interview with a favorite teacher or guidance counselor. Practicing your interview will make you more confident in the actual interviews. For more tips see our MyCareerBlast.com article Expert Tips for Acing Your College Admissions Interview.
Finally keep in mind that the college admissions interview is your one chance to make a shining impression as a real life person -- not just an applicant on paper.
