Interview Prep &
"Real Life" Rehearsal
At many universities across the country today, college admissions continues to be a highly competitive environment, with many schools posting record-high application numbers for the class of 2027. With over 1,800 schools going SAT/ACT test-optional, college applications have skyrocketed by as much as 30-60% across the board. With large applicant pools, it's likely that admission rates will remain low or even decrease. One way for high school seniors to gain a competitive edge during the application process is through the College Admissions Interview.
Once a small part of an Personal Score within the student's Application Portfolio, the Admissions Interview now has garnered considerable impact and can make-up as much as 50% of the student's Personal Score, according to the National Association of College Admissions Counselors.
