I'm a transfer student and I have an Interview with a an university admissions guide this tuesday. Any advice on this type of thing, or general interview advice in general? Have any of you guys gone through something similar?

Don't wear an Iron Maiden T-shirt, don't let brain farts leave your mouth (uhm, uhhhh ...).
Not sure if a sig is a necessity.

Try saying "an university" out loud. I'm assuming its correct also, but man is that weird to say. Not everyone is as good as plopping strategic pauses in between words as I am.

Um, buuuuuuuuuuuuut yeah. General interview advice would be don't rush your answers, but at the same time, know what you're saying and avoid rambling. Have some questions prepared (it makes you look more interested). And dont be nervous, have fun!

Oh yeah silly sig.

Look your interviewer in the eye, extend a hand and as he accepts your greeting say very clearly the words 'moist flaps' and raise an eyebrow.


Confidence is really the big thing I guess because it'll allow you to talk intelligently about what you may know in relation to the course. Oh and enthusiasm they love enthusiasm.

It's not correct at all. I even saw that today in that link that Disarm posted in the Chat Thread. "University" starts with a /j/ sound, which is a consonant.

Make sure you smoke weed before. Oh, and grow a neck beard and wear fedora... very sophisticated.

^ I've just realised if you say Simple Plan's 2011 effort "Get Your Heart On!" really fast in a Southern American accent, it sounds gross. . .like sexual gross!

whip out your dick while they're saying something stupid, lay it out on the desk in all it's glory (or non-glory) and look the interviewer in the eye and smile

Allegedly, Lyndon B. Johnson would do the same thing except say "Well have you ever seen anything as big as that!"

If they ask about your hobbies, tell them that you like to break stuff.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
#17
Whatever you do, don't get confused about your views when expressing them in front of the interviewers. Even if they might not like it, don't change your opinions mid-way through the interview. Be consistent.

Don't falter. Relax while you're speaking.

One other thing I can tell you is not make too much a deal about the interview because if you're too serious about it, you will get nervous was faster than normal and inevitably screw it up.

No, I judge people based on how similar they are to me.
The greater the similarity, the more of a total ****ing **** they are.

Make sure you can remember and coherently list your achievements/relevant experience, show enthusiasm, show knowledge, and offer oral sex.
