What Makes for a Good College Interview

  • 02/23/2021

Your interview will not be a curve-ball

Here’s a little secret - 99% of the time, even your interviewer will want you to succeed.

As an interviewer for Dartmouth College, I always hope the students I interview will do well. Here is where it hurts me (and them) - they almost always never seem prepared. 

Here is the thing:

The interview questions are amazingly predictable! Think about it - if we want to get to know you, what would we ask?

“Tell us about yourself.”

“What activities are you into?”

“What was your experience like in school?” 

These are not trick questions - just genuinely answer them as best and honestly as you can!

There are, however, a few things we look for:

1. Intelligence: We like to see the student critically dissect their experiences, but of course not be too certain of their young opinions.

2. Maturity: We like to see students who are aware of their emotional growth and where they currently are in life - a lucid and introspective sense of who you are will go an immensely long way in an interview.

3. Humility: Pompous showboating is a turn-off in both interviews and life in general - stay away from that, please!
