The Campus Interview
A campus interview with an admissions counselor can give your application an edge if you make a positive impression.
Most colleges do not require any kind of formal interview with applicants in making their admissions decisions, but you can make a good first impression with a strong interview when you go to visit the campus.
If you’re interested in having an interview — which can also help you learn more about the college — schedule it in advance rather than risk no one being available the day of your campus visit.
Your Goal? If you choose to request an interview, do a little planning so that you can showcase your fit with the college while also opening a window to your personality.
