I talked to the interviewer for 3 hours ranging from what I want to major, the meme account I have on Instagram(they were impressed), the business where I hope to hire homeless people and to what animals I have at home. At the end of the interview I asked about what his sheet of notes said about me and his first impression of me to which he responded; I think you're very determined and bright. You're very hardworking and resourceful. I've never had someone research me before an interview and Ive been doing this for 20 years. You really have made an impression on me and I believe you'd flourish at Princeton. (I looked him up so I'd know what he looked like, Yikes this could have been a stalker move.)
I had an amazing interview to say the least. The "I believe you'd flourish at Princeton." sentence had me on cloud nine.
So how much of an impact do Princeton interviews have on admissions process?
