I know I have been doing a lot of talking about high school, SATs,
college etc. etc. without a lot of real life anecdotes- as opposed to
vague allusions- to back anything up. Part of that's on purpose. I like
to keep my personal life somewhat mysterious, and especially everything
surrounding university/life beyond 14, 15, 16, 17. There are already
enough kids applying as it is.
Anyway, a question I've seen a lot is what do you wear for a college interview? Having already been on 3 in the past two weeks, I now consider myself a seasoned veteran. I wore a variation of this outfit to all three interviews. By variation I mean: I bought two floral pants last spring, and I own two gray sleeveless blouses like this one here, and mixed them each time. The jewelry changed as well. Considering none of the schools I am applying to are fashion schools, I tried to tone down any sort of "ohmygod she's such a style blogger" feeling and just focus on keeping it classic, but updated. However, the thing I kept in mind was that these interviewers were seeing kids all the time, and I didn't just want to be one in the pack. That meant no denim, (this isn't casual friday, people) and no cute pretty dresses. I liked these pants (and another pair from Zara that I'll try to get on the blog) because they were fun but also mature... if that makes any sense. I also ruled out heels immediately because come on, that's just not practical. You want to trip and fall face first into your interviewer's lap? I didn't think so.
OK, beyond clothes though? Just have fun you guys. Don't be nervous, at all. Nervous-ness doesn't help you, me, and least of all the interviewer. They're just trying to see who you are in person. And that shouldn't be terrifying. Good luck!
