Scholarship Interview Tomorrow!!

<p>Hey, well I have an interview tomorrow at the University of Maryland--College Park for the Banneker/Key Scholarship (Full Ride)...has anybody been through this before?? if not what are some last minute tips you can give me to help me get through this!</p>

<p>Haha I'm in your situation right now.. How was it?</p>

<p>superfish, I have a feeling that the original poster, who has only the one post, will not be around to give you advice tonight, but here's some thoughts...</p>

<p>Daughter, though not at UM, interviewed for a competitive full ride scholarship last year, and is one of 10 reaping that award. Best advice? Just be yourself! Don't try to impress the interviewer with a persona, but be ready to listen and answer and roll with the interview. Will you also do some writing while there? Both of the schools where d was up for the competitive awards had an essay component as well. </p>

<p>Each of the 2 schools' interviews (and interviewers) was very different, but the "rules" are the same -- show up on time, be polite, be interested!, thank the interviewer for the time and the opportunity to compete, and be proud of yourself for being selected for the interview.</p>

<p>Best of luck -- knock 'em dead.</p>
