Chances are if you have a girl, she will have already prepared for her college interview with the college admissions rep weeks before, picking out her outfit, practicing in the mirror. If you have a boy, you're going to probably have to help him find his shoes if he does have shoes that morning. So start thinking about it. You might also tell your teen to Google the person who's going to be interviewing them the week before or the day before at least and to get an idea what kind of business they're in, ask about why they study their major, don't talk politics. And if you're at Starbucks, don't order a messy drink or a memorable drink that this going to seem like a comedy to them.
