    Hello everybody,

    So here I am

    I'm Marco, italian, I applied to Sciences Po Reims campus through the international procedure. I had my interview on January 19th and I'm still waiting for a final decision.

    Hi, I'm considering applying to Menton. How did your interview go?
    (Do you know whether it is possible to carry out an interview online [ie skype] if it is not possible to travel to one of the interview locations?)

    Hi everybody,
    my interview went well (I had it in Reims on January 19th), the panel let me speak for my 10 minutes as I was analyzing the article they gave me without interrupting (they were just taking notes). After that, they started asking questions based on the considerations I had made during the analysis, so I suggest mentioning only stuff you're really confident in during your presentation in order to shift the conversation over to that area. They posed 3 or 4 question each, my panel was composed of the admission director, a political philosophy professor and an economics professor; they really want to push you to your limit and see how far you'll go (e.g. during my presentation I commented saying that the author's opinion reflected Plato's view expressed in the 6th book of his "Republic" and they asked questions about it unitl I just didn't know the answer). They make very specific questions and they want concise answers of a minute at the most, but I would say is, even if you don't know the answer, try to argument your thoughts on the general topic of the question, they might lead you to the answer.
    Stay updated with the news and most importantly, read the New York Times and the Economist of the days right before your interview; that's where they get the articles from.

    I had applied for Reims campus for the Euro American program and I was admitted just a week ago. Hope your interviews go super well! :-)

    Heyyy, first of all congratulations !!!
    I wanted to know how exactly does one prepare for the interview ? I keep up to date with global events by reading the NYT and WSJ, but I wanted to know what type of articles does the jury exactly give and what is the difficulty level of the questions they ask ?

    I would be really grateful if you could help me with this aspect. Thank you so much in advance !!!!

    Hi ! I applied for the undergraduate programme at the Reims Campus (my first, and only choice) I submitted my application in Mid-January, received an invitation for an interview on the 31st of January, and had my interview Mid March in Reims I received an offer yesterday !! If you have any questions about the process, I'm more than happy to answer them. I found the interview incredibly daunting, but it was certainly do-able.

    Hi!! I submitted mine in February too and got an answer exactly a month later. But don't panic I think that the date that you chose to have your interview must have something to do, when is it?

    It's very good to hear from someone that actually got in hahahaha. Congratulations!! Were you very nervous before the interview? how much time did you had to talk before they started asking questions, I know they say 10min of presentation, but is it really? were the questions difficult or more like interesting to think about? OMG I'm so sorry for all these questions but I'm a bit tense!
