Columbia University Interview- Some Facts that you should Know About

One of the important aspects of the undergraduate admissions in the college is the interview conducted by the Alumni Representative Committee of Columbia (ARC). These interviews are conducted throughout the world on behalf of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, by ARC. However, the college does not really have infinite number of college volunteers or alumni to conduct these interviews. So it does not really promise you that the interview would definitely be arranged in your area. Applicants who are not contacted for interviews should not be worried as it’s not the Office of Undergraduates that is in charge of the actual assignment of interview. The college very clearly directs aspirants not to inquire of interviews via e-mail or phone calls. If they think that can call you for an interview in your area after going through your contact details in your application, then they’ll get in touch with you. The interview is only provided in the area where the candidate's high school is situated. If you've completed high school and are no longer living nearby then you won't be offered an interview.

How Will You Prepare for the interview?

Whether you’re appearing for undergraduate or fellowships interviews, please remember that there’s no secret code to crack it successfully. If you read accounts of students who’ve already interviewed in this college, you would actually come to know that interviewers can ask you possibly about anything. Some of the areas that they would focus on are mentioned below.

They would be particularly interested in knowing about you- your family, hobbies, interest, high school which other schools you’re looking at, etc.

They would be willing to find reasons behind you going to Columbia and your high school academics.

Your fellowships interview would require you to prepare yourself well. Your first responsibility in that regard would be to reread your application and specifically go through the fellowship website. Make sure that your interview panel does not find you unsure about your goals. Make sure that you’re able to demonstrate your passion and comprehension of the core values of fellowship that you would be able to instill in others as well.

Read newspapers on a regular basis as current affairs can act as springboards in these interviews. Interview questions might range from application based queries to general knowledge and subject specific questions.
