The High School Interview in Detail

Structured behavioral-style interview

Behavioral interview questions focus on past experience and facilitate interesting conversations. Rather than testing knowledge in any particular area, the interview questions are designed to help admissions officers learn more about personality, interests, and the way the applicant approaches challenges.
