Admissions Interviews: Still an Art and a Science

Admissions Interviews: Still an Art and a Science | Eric Hoover & Beckie Supiano | Chronicle of Higher Education | 21 May, 2010

The article discusses the college admissions process, particularly the admissions interview, which some schools still use to select applicants for admission. Some schools, it is noted, still use interviews because it gives applicants a chance to impress college admissions officers and it also helps officers to meet the applicants for themselves. High school student Robert Johns discusses the college interviews that he took part in. Professor Scott E. Highhouse of Bowling Green State University discusses the psychological aspects of interviews and William E. Sedlacek of the University of Maryland at College Park comments on the reliability of assessing future college students via interviews.
