I am in the middle of my college application process and some schools out there that require college interviews. On each schools website they say “we only interview if there is an alumni in your area.” Unfortunately, because I live in the capital of this country, I get interviews for every single school. I know it is advantageous to have a face-to-face conversation with someone who is going to vouch for you with a school, but I have had 8 interviews at this point.
I have trekked to so many different places around town trying to meet up with different people. For four of them, they have been rescheduled hours before they were supposed to take place. I just find it super inconvenient considering I have 3 just this week! It is also difficult managing school work, interviews, family, making it to dinner on time, and socializing all at the same time. Sometimes I wonder if colleges forget that we have lives besides college applications!
