Interview (Calm My Nerves)



Like all of us, I am eagerly awaiting decisions back from the schools I've applied to. Next week, I have an interview at my top choice school. I know what kind of questions to expect (Research interests, why here, what are you goals, etc)...but the things is, I've already answered these questions when I visited the school earlier in the application process.  I met one of the faculty members (who I hope will be my advisor!) during a school visit (sat in on a class, took a tour and then spoke to the professor afterwards for about an hr). She grilled me on all these questions already, which I wasn't expecting but in retrospect, I totally should have.  In any case, I sort of rambled my way through my nervous, half-thought out responses. Since then, I've submitted my application and now I've been invited to interview. 


So, to calm my nerves, this must be a good sign right? One of the main people who is making the decision has already met me and heard these answers, reviewed my application and now they've invited me back?

It sounds to me you're doing alright, it is defintely a good sign. Go over all the relevant materials and do your best to prepare for the interview, and congratulations for being called!
