kokotg Posted April 10, 2018 Share Posted April 10, 2018 DS16 is interested in several colleges that either strongly suggest or require interviews. We're planning on visiting a few of these during our summer road trip, and he's very much dreading the interview part of the visits. He's an introverted, shy, quiet kid who doesn't like to talk about himself and will generally give one word answers to strangers any time he can get away with it. With people he knows well, he's witty and funny and can hold up his end of the conversation just fine, but I very much worry that at an interview he's going to come across as a bad stereotype of a socially repressed homeschooled kid. I'm guessing that sending e-mails to all the admissions people in advance explaining that he's just naturally a quiet kid, and it's not homeschooling's fault would be bad form, so short of that....any advice on how he can prepare for interviews? Both in hopes that they'll go well and so that he'll feel more confident and not ruin his vacation fretting about them. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
