Hello. I have two interviews with Deerfield and Hotchkiss this Saturday. I'm wondering if you guys can tell me some questions they ask during the interview or some general tips and tricks. Also, should 1 wear my school uniform or something less formal?

    To @Chan2006 if you scroll through the threads - there is a thread on this topic. I posted pretty detailed suggestions on the Deerfield question thread and other thread @ Hotchkiss, Taft, etc....

    TO @Chan2006 - if you go the Deerfield Academy Application Process thread and post #5 - you will find suggestions regarding interviewing & touring that are applicable to most schools. Good luck - feel free to DM me for more info.

    Regarding school uniform: You do not have to wear your current school uniform - only a handful of kids do this when they interview and tour - believe me, they really stand out and you do not want to feel uncomfortable. Most guys wear khaki pants or grey slacks, shirts with collars, blue blazer or a sweater over the shirt (weekends less formal). Most girls wear dress (not too short) or skirt/blouse. Now, both girls and boys must wear a jacket or blazer to class at Deerfield - so when you tour, you might want to fit in when interviewing during the week. On weekends, it’s a bit less formal.

    * Be sure to leave time for a school tour
