A personal interview allows a student to meet directly with a university official or representative of the university or scholarship committee.  Preparation is the single most important factor in successful interviews. Your preparation should involve 2 primary components: Knowing Yourself and Knowing the University (or program, job, scholarship, etc.).

Know yourself
  • Skills & Abilities  |  things you do well
  • Personality Tendencies |  things that set you apart from other candidates
  • Values, Dreams & Passions | things you like
Be prepared to answer the following questions in an interview:
  • Tell me a little more about yourself.
  • What are 3 of your strengths?
  • What are your short-term and long-term goals?
