What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Interviews are going to just be stressfull in general but I think you should help your interviewers help with the stress by having a more structured interview where they can ask questions vs. just throwing it out there for the interviewee to "tell them about themselves" it just too difficult and that particular quesion has no right or wrong answer so you can walk out not knowing if you blew your chances. Also sometime having maybe 2 people interview you (like a panel) might be advantages because your faith should not rely in just one person. Thank you" More from this Member | Report Response
