Does anyone know any good places to get interview help? This is my 3rd time applying, I always get a good number of interviews (like 6 or 7) and then either get denied or waitlisted. I can't afford to do this again, and I'm willing to accept that I don't interview well...but I want to get better. Know any companies or services that offer interview preparation so I can practice before my interviews start?

have you tried contacting the schools youve interviewed with in the past to see where you went wrong?

undergraduate schools usually have a service where they do mock interviews to fine tune everything

find a place that offers mock interviews (your undergrad, sometimes kaplan) or ask professors or professionals you are acquainted with to sit with you and ask you questions from a list of common interview questions

I'd first recommend contacting the schools. I thought I was a poor interviewee, but it turned out that I had bad LORs and did not "sell myself" well in my applications. Definitely ask those schools what your weaknesses were and how you may address them.

I don't get why schools invite people they likely wouldn't accept anyway based on their paper application...I'd rather save my money.

This is my nightmare...I also have 6 interviews and I am afraid I will fail all. Had one interview already and no word :scared:
