Chalk Talk: Interviews
Not very many colleges require interviews, and not all even offer them, but if a college does prospective student interviews, it’s a good idea to do them. It’s important to consider who will conduct the interview; if it isn’t done by an admissions representative, it’s probably not worth the effort. Alumni interviewers, for example, are rarely even trained, and their opinions don’t count for much. Some colleges do train their alumni interviewers, and their opinions do matter, but this is fairly rare. In general, alumni interviewers have a lot of say about their personal experience, which can be interesting and informative. They tend to like every applicant, which might make you feel good. But they don’t necessarily have the training to do a meaningful interview. If the college is too far to travel to, try to do a Skype or phone interview with an admissions representative.
