Interview tips
Interview Tips something to do that's NOT for Valentine's Day? 

  • Prior to interviewing, get to know the professors at the school you’re considering.

  • Do your homework on the program you’re 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. Don’t ask questions that can be answered in the school’s 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 you’ve had “difficulty” in certain areas, but how you’ve worked on these issues and what you have concurred. STAY POSITIVE.

Phone skype and face to face interviews
Phone, Skype, and Face-to-Face Interviews something to do that's NOT for Valentine's Day? 

  • 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
Tips & Other Information something to do that's NOT for Valentine's Day? 

  • Remember, this is an ACADEMIC interview.

  • You might not know:

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

      • They wouldn’t invest time into you coming out to see them if you weren’t on their short-list. This means that basically unless your personality doesn’t match the program, or they hate you, you’ll 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.

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