<p>I just scheduled an interview at Barnard, but I really have no idea what to expect. Any tips? Advice? Anything I should keep in mind? Help!</p>

<p>one more thing-- does anyone know if this interview is a chance for me to get to know Barnard... or the other way around? Should I come with questions or be prepared to be asked questions?</p>

<p>both. come prepared with questions to show that you're interested in the school. however, don't come with dumb questions that can be found online, like class sizes.</p>

<p>my interviewer was a student, and we happened to have things on common, like yearbook, politics, and other interests, so the interview went great. she asked questions ranging from 'what are your strengths/weaknesses?' to 'which movie would you rather see this summer, ____ or ____?' i don't know what it's like to be interviewed by an admin and not a student, but i imagine that the experience is different.</p>

<p>also, follow up with a thank you note, mailed.</p>

<p>Thank you so much... although, I find myself so completely enamored with Barnard that I can't think of anything to ask-- I have been so thrilled with everything I have read up on Barnard, from the website as well as from several books. I'm a tour guide at my school, so I know there is little more annoying than a prospective student who doesn't have any questions, but I really have no idea what I could ask, besides a couple of things about certain extracurriculars I'm interested in... Suggestions? Please? Anything's good, I just need to get the ball rolling...!</p>

<p>Also, this is completely unrelated to interviews, but I'm in a bit of a pickle... see, I took the SAT I in May (not good) and then I took SAT IIs in June, although I only took one (stupid, stupid me. I don't know why I didn't take another). Even if I did do well on that SAT II, I still would have had to take SAT IIs again. So here's my problem: I need to take both SAT I and II, so of course, I am registering October and November. However, I want, more than ANYTHING, to apply early. Is there any way that Barnard will accept my November score?</p>

<p>that's a good idea, to ask about stuff you're interested in...the person might not know the exact answers, but they can point you in the right direction...and it'll show that you're interested.</p>

<p>as for the SATs, i don't know the might have to call admissions and ask. you couldn't take the SAT and SATII on the same day in october? i know that's a lot of test taking for one day...or, have you considered that instead of taking the SATIIs, take the ACT?</p>

<p>RE questions to ask your interviewer: If it's a student, ask her about her experiences; about advising; about her favorite thing about Barnard and if there was one thing she could change, what would it be? Just some general ideas...</p>

<p>About test taking: I am pretty sure you cannot sub the ACT for SAT II's; You can submit ACT scores instead of SAT's, however. As to the October/November thing, I want to THINK you can do that, but as suggested above, you should call admissions and ask...</p>

<p>Barnard accepts the ACT + writing in lieu of both SAT & SAT II's. My d. did not submit any SATs.</p>

We require the SAT Reasoning Test and two SAT Subject Tests of your choice OR the ACT with writing option.

<p>Thanks so much! I would call Barnard... but I'm afraid of hearing a big fat "no," as silly as that may sound. I know it would be for my best interest to call but I don't want to fret over something I can't change...yet.</p>
