But what about coming in contact with a college in a more intimate way, other than walking around campus on a tour or exploring on your own? I'm talking about on-campus interviews, when you find yourself sitting across the table from a college representative, be it an actual live admissions officer or a current student who works in admissions.
This past summer, I offered some interview advice which was primarily aimed at rising seniors who wanted to use summer vacation time to visit colleges and possibly take advantage of interview opportunities then. Because I feel that this information is so important, I'm repeating it here (with some enhancements), kind of like a TV summer rerun airing during fall premier season. So, my loyal regular readers may feel a sense of déjà vu, but that's okay. Good information bears repeating, especially during the heat of the fall application cycle.
