What Questions Could I be Asked?


Admissions and alumni interview questions can be about almost anything. Be prepared.

In theory, you could be asked any legal question that bears upon an admissions decision. With well-meaning well-alumni interviewers, you might be asked any question. It pays to be aware of the more common variations of obscure questions that come up from time to time.

Again, don't try to script an answer and commit it to memory. Do be sure that you can handle the question in a relaxed, confident manner. Then move on to one of the important points you want to make about your potential to contribute to campus life.
