Tips for College Interviews

Regardless of schooling background, students applying to college must prepare for the interview process. Although not all colleges require these, many do. And homeschoolers, especially, need to be ready to explain, expound upon, and create enthusiasm for their non-traditional education.

A good place to start is with Susan Goodkin's article, "College Interview Tips." Ms. Goodkin, Executive Director of the California Learning Strategies Center, is a Rhodes Scholar, Harvard graduate, and Education Consultant for grades K-12. The California Learning Strategies Center's mission is to help "parents get their advanced and gifted children the education they deserve, inside and outside of the classroom."

Filled with good tips, the article assume the college-bound student is from a traditional school, but homeschoolers can easily adapt the information to suit their needs.
Ms. Goodkin also offers "How to Ace College Interivews," which is a 30-minute program that can be listened to multiple times. The cost for this download is $25, which is but a drop-in-the-bucket when college application fees and costs are figured into the sum.

For further information, check the California Learning Strategies Center website. To contact Susan Goodkin directly, call 805-642-6686 (9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. PST) or email

Knowing how to prepare for interviews is a life-skill that must be learned by college. Susan Goodkin's advice can help.
