    College counselor Jerome A. Cole, MA discusses the importance of interviews when applying to college.

    Jerome Cole: My name is Jerome Cole. I am the Director of College Counseling at the Edmund Burke School in Washington, DC and today I am going to talk to you about how to have a successful college interview.

    Speaker: Are interviews required for college?

    Jerome Cole: For most high school students apply in a college, they will not actually have to do a college interview. In general, the more select, the more competitive colleges in the country require interviews, but for the most part I would say 70%, 80% of the colleges in America do not require students to do interviews.
