Wake Forest Interview 2020 Tips

Hi! I am making this thread to help my fellow Class of 2025 people with the Wake Forest webcam interview. I had mine last week, and I was super stressed out because of what i read on here. The interview experiences however were outdated in comparison to what I experienced. I know each person will experience something different so I hope we can all add to this.

My interviewer was a recent Wake graduate, and did not ask me questions in a manner to trip me up or anything that was unusual like "What kitchen utensil I am?" The questions were pretty standard for a college interview I feel like, and it felt like a conversation not a Q&A. They talked. I talked. Expect to talk about why you want to go to the school, your high school classes/ extracurricular activities. I can't tell you what was asked because it went off of what I said just like any other conversation. I have seen a lot of threads that say they ask about current events. We discussed one, but I brought it up first in relation to one of my extracurricular activities. If you are good at thinking on your feet, genuinely want to go to Wake Forest, and can talk about yourself... you're in good shape! :)

Good Luck!! p.s lmk if you have additional questions ( @hsgal83846 @vntdman7 ) here you guys go :wink:

    Thanks a ton for this! I'm really scared for the interview but it's great to hear that there wasn't anything out of the blue. All of us class of 2025 people have to look out for each other. I had a question about the current affairs thing. So if I say that I'm interested in current affairs do I have to come up with a recent event to talk about or will they just ask me something random like should I prepare to talkl about it in a non-political way because I have heard that you've to avoid politics for such interviews. Also did they ask you about books you've read? It seems like they ask a lot about books on their supplemental essays. Also how did you prepare for the interview? I know these are a lot of questions but I'm pretty nervous. Thanks again!

    I was super duper nervous as well, don’t be! Just breathe. :) We discussed BLM solely because I said I wrote an article on it. I don’t think that’s political and it kind of tied into diversity things since i’m African American. I’m not sure if you say that you are interested in them if they will ask you about something. I said i was interested in Bio + Politics and international affairs. Nothing was asked that was political however for my on the phone interview at American University in Washington DC, she asked what kind of policy and topics i was interested in which makes sense it being in DC...anyway, I really felt like it was a conversation and only at the end did he ask what book inspires me...probably because we had strayed a bit from what the questions they ask are. I didn’t prepare much because i’ve been in love with Wake for years!! I just wrote down some things about my high school and why I want to go to Wake to gather my thoughts. I definitely didn’t memorize it at all. I also dove into specific things that Wake has to offer that I might be interested in if anything was asked of that sorts! Definitely don’t stress at all. Be sure to private message me or comment again to let me know how it goes. Class of 2025 = best class !! lol good luck you got it!!

    Do any other schools offer interviews (with admissions) other than Wake?
