NORWALK, Conn. -- Norwalk students are being offered the latest skills in interviewing for colleges.
Director Roz McCarthy of the Center for Global Studies presented a seminar Sept. 25 at Brien McMahon High School in Norwalk, focusing on the college interview process, according to a press release. College Interview Counselors also offered a PowerPoint presentation along with mock interviews describing the interview arena in the college application process, according to the release.
CIC’s founders, Kyrie Stillman and Peggy Marx, have chaired an interview committee for a top New England college for more than 25 years of combined service, according to the release.
"I was not sure exactly what to expect when I invited Kyrie Stillman and Peggy Marx, of College Interview Counselors (CIC), to provide a seminar on the college interview process. I have to say that I, my students, and their parents were pleasantly surprised by the amount of information CIC was able to impart on the college application process," McCarthy said in the release. "Kyrie and Peggy gave our students lots of great tips, and what they shared was presented in a fun way. I saw parents and students writing lots of notes. I believe my students learned a great deal. I will definitely ask them to return to our school."
CIC highlighted the fact that the interview offers the only face to face contact students have with schools, according to the release. CIC’s research showed that more than 94 percent of the top 75 colleges and more than 88 percent of the top 25 universities offer admissions interviews, according to the release.
