How To Make Your College Interview A Success

College interviews can be a stressful part of the college application process.

For a lot of high school students, this is the first time they’ll be participating in a formal interview, so it’s understandable why the interviewing process can cause some anxiety.

Contrary to popular belief, some colleges really do place a lot of weight on the interview process. After all, they want to make sure they’re selecting students whose personalities, abilities, and interests fit well with what the school has to offer.
