Interviewing for Grad School

Preparing For An Interview

Many graduate programs will not require an interview; however, if an interview is offered, you should take the opportunity to meet. An interview is an excellent way to share your experience, reasons for applying to the program, and to ask questions.

Career Services’ Interviewing Advice can help you prepare.  Present yourself professionally and be prepared to talk about your research or work experiences and career goals. You will want to know as much as possible about the specific program and be ready to ask well-informed questions about it. A good “fit” between you and the program will be important to the program as well as to you.
