First Annual College Interview Day Set for October 8

Posted September 10th, 2013


College Interview Day at St. Augustine Prep will take place in the Edith Favretto Scarpa Arts and Sciences Building on Tuesday, October 8. Prep students will have the opportunity to select from sixteen confirmed colleges and universities to meet and speak with admission counselors.

“The response from colleges and universities has been very positive and we are pleased with the enthusiastic acceptances to participate,” says Brooke Coyle, Director of College Guidance. Thus far, the following schools will be conducting interviews throughout the day: Villanova University, Arcadia University, The Catholic University of America, Drew University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, High Point University, Merrimack College, Moravian College, Mount St. Mary’s University, Neumann University, Philadelphia University, Rider University, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, Saint Joseph’s University, Ursinus College, and Widener University.

Arcadia University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Moravian College, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, and Widener University have also agreed to provide an admissions instant decision for those Prep students who meet their academic profile requirements and apply no later than October 1 (following the review of application by their college counselor).

Senior students will be scheduled to have up to four 15 minute interview sessions with college admissions counselors. Each student will be provided a folder containing unofficial copies of his high school transcript, as well as SAT/ACT scores; however, students will be responsible to provide the college representative with a copy of their high school resume.
