    How are the interviews going? Any surprises at schools? Any advice you can share about the experience to other students? Were the tours & interviews what you expected?

    Exeter asked me so many "why" questions. It was really difficult, but I think I left a good impression.

    Sure! I can't remember many questions off the top of my head, but I remember mentioning that I would rather go to the charter school than the public school, and they asked me why. I just vaguely answered that there wouldn't be the best influences, and the asked me why. I definitely wasn't prepared for that one, haha. Just be prepared to be put on the spot!

    It’s not so much putting you on the spot it’s that they want to have a conversation with you. So if you mention something they are expecting to discuss it. They don’t want one word/one sentence answers. Be prepared to talk back and forth about anything that comes up.
