The Most Stupid College Interview Responses: The Threat
#3 The Threat
Interviewer: So why are you interested in this university?
Interviewee: You’re familiar with this building, right?
Interviewer: Yes, of course I am
Interviewee: Well it has my last name on it. My father would be very disappointed if you don’t accept me and it’s not pleasant for anyone when he gets disappointed.
Interviewer: Could we move onto your extracurricular credentials?
Interviewee: I enjoy watching lions stalking their prey on the discovery channel.
Interviewer: Wow- you know what? You sound absolutely perfect for our school!
Lesson: Even if your parents donated a ton of money to the school that’s interviewing you, it doesn’t mean they will accept you. Threats don’t work; they will just scare the interviewer away. Trying to impersonate Clint Eastwood will not make you any more intimidating, let alone the Godfather.
