2020 cycle


Recommended Posts

I also received an interview invite on 8/19! It's my first interview and I'm excited but super nervous. I'm more on the shy/quiet side and interviews generally are not my strong suit. Just curious if anyone who has been accepted can identify with this and how the experience was for you?

I consider myself an introvert and thought it might hinder my interview performance, but the Marist interview process was very laid-back and by the time it came to the actual interview questions I felt very relaxed and felt like I already knew my interviewers.  I would recommend talking when you feel like it would be appropriate.  When you are in between interviews try to engage with the other interviewees and the faculty member that is moderating the Zoom lobby.  You want to come off as personable and engaging.  Believe me, it will be easier than you think come interview day.  Hope this helps and good luck!

Hi everyone, I will be applying late this cycle to Marist ( hopefully tomorrow by the latest). I have a question since the limit of the supplemental essay on CASPA is pretty high (9999), how long should I suppose to limit myself writing this? Please kindly advise. Thanks!

My supplemental essay was about 2000 characters.  It was only a few small paragraphs but I made sure that I conveyed why I really wanted to go to Marist. Good luck!

This was so helpful. I am in the same boat. This has helped me feel quite relaxed about the interview.  Did you feel that there was a lot of people on the zoom call at once and that during the “Zoom Lobby session” you really needed to make an effort to speak or was there plenty of opportunity to speak up when you wanted?Thanks for sharing! 🙂

Mine was a little less than a thousand, but I'm a pretty concise writer. I was also invited for an interview. I do not think they are worried about how long it is. Mostly what is in it. As long as you convey why you want to go there and why you would be a good fit I think you will be okay.

Congrats my guy!! Do you mind sharing what your interview experience was like? I'm a nervous wreck just thinking about it! 😖😖

It was honestly the best interview experience I had. It was so easygoing, they actually care and listen to your answers. They're invested in you and want to see who you are as a person. They already know you're a great candidate and they want to know you more!
