We partner with third party interview services like Vericant…[because] it really gives us a lot of great insight into what the student is really all about. The part that I typically enjoy the most is really getting into those personal questions: tell me a little more about your interests, tell me a little about a great book that you recently read. Those types of questions where we get to hear from you – just more about yourself and more about your life that maybe we wouldn’t have gotten from a list of extracurriculars or from your well-manicured essay. [The interview] gives us more insight into your day to day you, and that’s what we like to see.

我们与像维立克一样的第三方面试机构合作,因为它确实让我们对学生们有了更多深刻的了解。我通常最喜欢个人问题环节:跟我讲讲你的兴趣爱好,聊聊你最近读过的一本好书等。这样的问题让我们能从你口中了解到更多关于你和你的生活,一些你或许不会放在活动列表或者写进你精心撰写的文书中的内容。面试能让我们认识最真实和平常的你,这也正是我们想了解的。

Third party interviews including Vericant…give us a great insight into a student’s writing skills from the writing sample, that’s a very important piece for us, as well as how a student can conduct a conversation in English, which is very important for us too because we don’t have any English as a second language support for our incoming students. So, we expect that everyone will be able to jump into a conversation in an academic and social level including that in very small classrooms that are very discussion-based, even for first year students.

The interview is also a great way for students to be themselves and to showcase their personal strengths that are harder to convey through a piece of writing, and it’s a pleasure because we feel like we are meeting these students through the interview so we strongly recommend it; it’s a very helpful piece.

第三方面试,包括维立克,通过学生们完成的写作材料让我们更好的了解他们的写作水平,这对我们来说非常重要。同样重要的还有学生如何用英语进行对话,这对我们来说重要,因为我们没有为即将到来的学生提供英语是第二语言的支持。因此,我们希望每个人,即使是大一新生,都能够用英文进行学术和社交交流,包括在以讨论为主的小班课程教学中。

面试同样是让学生做自己,并展示自己强项的机会。这些很难通过写作来展现。我们很荣幸以这种方式了解学生,感觉就像我们与学生面对面交流一样。所以我们非常推荐第三方面试,它是个很好的补充材料。
