Default Help me with a scholarship interview?

Well, I'm going to an interview with the dean and the Board of Trustees this Friday and I have a full-ride scholarship on the line so I would love some help!

If you guys know any difficult questions they may ask please let me know. And any overall tips would be great as well.

Don't get high the night before and dress nice + comb your hair.

I actually have two this Friday is the University of Utah and I have a second one on Monday for Utah State University. I know, they're not Ivy League but I need to stay in state to use a few of my scholarships.

Sit up straight, talk with a purpose, and don't be afraid to think before you speak.

Be honest. Honest answers seep through one's lips much easier than ones that are aimed only to please his listeners' ears. Maintain as much eye contact with those who are interviewing you as possible. Also, if the opportunity arises, don't that forget a firm handshake can say a lot about you as a person.

Show them that you have researched their school. Don't list off facts, but let them know you've done your due diligence.

Ask them questions. Don't let it turn into a one side asks questions and the other side answers. Try to turn it conversational, while still providing them the information they request.

If both your pants are still on at the end of the interview, you didn't try hard enough.

Oh I thought it went great! They said they would make a decision on who would win the scholarship in about a week. So now we play the waiting game...
