The trick is to not want it so bad.

For those wondering how to not want it so bad and how to calm their nerves - throw some headphones in an hour before your zoom call and listen to a guided meditation and focus on breathing. DONT run your lines. Try not to think about the interview. A guided meditation on gratitude for an hour will get your mind off the interview and get you thinking about what you’re greatful for. Trust me, you go into the interview feeling like a breath of fresh air and I swear the adcoms notice this. Remember, being nervous is the most selfish thing you can do because you force the adcoms to have to be around a nervous person for 30 mins 😝

The alum ones I’ve had have actually been really fun and conversational- not stuffy at all. felt like they didn’t seem to want to hear the pre-packaged/perfectly rehearsed answers, but wanted to get to know me as a person. they definitely made up questions on the fly as responses to my answers. It was honestly really refreshing when every other part of the app is fine-tuned and polished to the nth degree.
