Interview

<p>Hi,</p>

<p>I'm having a Columbia alumni interview in two weeks, and I know I'm supposed to ask questions. However, I feel as if most of the questions I'll ask could just be found on the website, so I'm kind of confused as to what kind of questions I should ask the interviewer.</p>

<p>Any tips?</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>Also, is it suggested that I email the alumni with a copy of my resume and application, or will he already have that on hand? Some people have mentioned that they did that, but I don't want to come off as being arrogant of my accomplishments, but at the same time, I want to seem like I really want to attend Columbia (which I do).</p>

<p>What do you suggest?</p>

<p>Thanks again!</p>

<p>To your 2nd point: he/she has nothing about your beyond your contact info. When you communicate, if he/she requests you send info, then do so. No need to do it if not requested.</p>

<p>I think T26E4's answer is correct, but I'll add a little to it.</p>

<p>I do think it helps me to have some kind of resume, but I would strongly advise against sending a copy of your application. Colleges really hope that the interview with an alumnus or alumna will let them learn something about you that they didn't learn from your written application and recommendations. The more your interviewer knows about the content of your application, the more likely your interview is, IMO, to cover the same old ground.</p>
