I just finished up my first interview of the new season. I must admit, prior to the interview, the rainy day was making me feel a little “blah.” But there’s just something about a nice conversation with someone that makes me smile. She didn’t have to do any magic tricks or back flips, or cure cancer, or bring me cookies (my favorite is chocolate chip with walnuts). (And no, you are not supposed to bring me cookies). (Unless you reeeeallly want to). All she had to do was show up, and have a conversation. She told me about her interests in service, law, and art; we talked about the new Star Trek movie; and we reminisced about how beautiful western Massachusetts can be when there aren’t so many tourists around.
She did a great job, and she made my day just a little brighter.
So what should you take away from this? That in addition to helping you get into college, and giving you insider information on whichever colleges you’re considering, interviewing makes admissions folks smile, and that never hurts.
On-campus interviews are available now through December. To arrange an on-campus interview, please call the Admissions Office at 1-800-442-2421. For more information, please see our Web site.
