Graduate School Interview Questions

  • What are your strengths and weaknesses?

  • If you're not accepted into graduate school, what are your plans?

  • Why did you choose this career?

  • What do you know about our program?

  • Why did you choose to apply to our program?

  • In what ways have your previous experience prepared you for graduate study in our program?

  • What do you believe your greatest challenge will be if you are accepted?

  • How will you be able to make a contribution to this field?

  • Tell me about your experience in this field.

  • How do you intend to finance your education?

  • What skills do you bring to the program?

  • How will you help your mentor in his or her research?

  • Why should we take you and not someone else?

Interview Tips

  • Prior to interviewing, get to know the professors at the school youre considering.

  • Do your homework on the program youre interviewing for.

  • Prepare like you would for a job interview and be ready to discuss your professional goals, areas of interest, and motivation for graduate study.

  • Answer questions in a way that demonstrates how you solve problems and articulate your ideas.

  • Interviewers are probably more interested in your character than how much you know.

  • Ask questions that matter to you and give the interviewer insight into your personality and priorities. Dont ask questions that can be answered in the schools literature.

  • Dress as if you are going to a professional interview.

  • Present yourself as positively as possible. Talk about your strengths, not your weaknesses.

    • If asked about your weaknesses, discuss how youve had difficulty in certain areas, but how youve worked on these issues and what you have concurred. STAY POSITIVE.

Phone, Skype, and Face-to-Face Interviews

  • Phone:

    • Make sure that you are in a quiet area (this is not like a library or starbucks). DO NOT DO IT OUTSIDE WHERE CARS CAN DRIVE BY.

    • Dress professionally. It will put you in the mood of an interview.

    • Make sure that you have material printed out about the professors that you like, certain work that they have done, certain programs the school offers, and any questions that you have.

  • Skype:

    • Biggest mistake people make is that they only dress professionally from the waist-up.

    • Have lists of questions and materials on hand. It will make you look like you prepared for the interview, which is what you would do for any type of professional interview or meeting.

    • Again, choose a quiet place.

  • Face-to-Face

    • Some places have GROUP interviews, while others are INDIVIDUAL.

      • Make sure you stand out in either one. Group ones you need to make sure you talk!

    • Most places will be for a weekend or entire day visit.

      • You will visit the campus, meet other graduate students, meet the professors, etc.

      • Clinical Programs especially want to see how you interact with others.

Tips & Other Information

  • Remember, this is an ACADEMIC interview.

  • You might not know:

    • You should find out if youre accepted (if they like you) within a week.

      • They wouldnt invest time into you coming out to see them if you werent on their short-list. This means that basically unless your personality doesnt match the program, or they hate you, youll get in.

    • Faculty is interviewing you to see if they can use you to teach or to research with.

      • This is a lot of times how people pay for their schooling.

  • Youve got their attention and made it through the hardest part! GOOD LUCK AND PRACTICE!
