Add some *you* to your interview responses

Almost every strong answer in a college interview focuses on the same subject—you.

Don’t recite an accomplishment off the resume. Talk about how it made you feel.

Don’t list features and benefits to describe your interest in a college. Describe yourself and why you would thrive there.

Your favorite subject, your intended course of study, your hobbies or influences or challenges—every question is designed to learn more about you.

So give the interviewer what they’re looking for and add some you to every response.
