College Admissions Interviews

Some colleges recommend or even require college admissions interviews. In an admissions interview, you sit down with an admissions officer or an alum, either on campus or nearer to your home.

It’s just another way for them to get to know you and decide whether you would be a good fit. However, some interviews are strictly informational, not evaluative; these interviews are used mainly to answer your questions and get you excited about their school.
