本人17年申请yale silver scholar,正在准备面试中。

在CD查找有关video question的经验,发现从2010年到现在,经验贴都十分零碎。于是准备之际,顺手搜索了2010年,2014年至2017年来自CD网友的所有相关留言,在前人的基础上整理了如下文档。 首先十分感谢一位 提供“170119 video questions”文档的网友,按照问题类型将题目分的非常仔细。前人栽树,后人乘凉。希望这份文档会被不断更新。

祝大家好运!

2013 年官网 suggestion:
FIRST, an open-ended, introductory question about yourself;
NEXT, a “behavioral” question similar to what you would be asked in a business school or job interview that asks how you handled a certain professional situation;
FINALLY, a “thought” question that offers a statement and asks if you agree or disagree with it, and why. The questions are meant to give us a better sense of who you are, how you act, and how you think.

I would especially emphasize that we do not expect perfection with these questions. We know that they are unrehearsed, extemporaneous, in-the-moment responses. We are more concerned about the thoughtfulness of your responses than the “polish” of the presentation. (That said, please do dress appropriately.)
