USC Trustee Scholarship Interview Tips?

First of all, congratulations that is awesome being nominated. I don't know anything about the Scholarship but can give you a few social media tips for acing the interview. Good Luck

1. Get it on….line.
Follow your prospective school’s Twitter feeds, “like” their Facebook fan page, and subscribe to any other social media channels can give you incredibly insightful information. Through social media you can find out what issues matter (sports scores, campus beautification – even cafeteria menus) and incorporate that knowledge into your essays and interviews to show that you’ve done your research and know exactly why the school is right for you.
2. Video made the college star.
Make a video on why you want to go to the school, a highlight reel of yourself engaged in your extra-curricular, get additional recommendations on camera – post it on YouTube, and tag the school, then include a link to the video in your application. Now you can stand out from the plethora of students applying. Tufts leveraged social media when they invited students to submit an optional one-minute YouTube video along with their application.
3. Blog your way in.
A blog is a fantastic platform for displaying writing skills and a knowledge of your declared/target major. Your blog can showcase photos of your volunteerism, your creative side via art or music projects, that time you made it into the local paper for saving a cat in a tree/catching the winning touchdown/winning a pie eating contest. Your blog can show your dynamic personality in ways that a word-count-restricted essay and GPA cannot, and can give you a leg up on other students. Of course, don’t forget to give links to your blog on your application, inviting the admissions officers to view it, and comment.
4. Privacy, please!
It’s been said before, but can’t be said enough – if you put it online, anyone can find it. No one’s saying you can’t have fun on social networks – but when you do, make sure that it is all private! Here’s how to do it on a few of the major sites:

* On Facebook, visit “Privacy Settings” by clicking on “Account” and set privacy settings at the highest level you’re comfortable with.

* On Twitter, visit the “Edit my Profile” page (on the “Profile page” tab), then scroll to the bottom and make sure that “Protect my Tweets” is selected. You’ll have to manually approve anyone that wants to view your Tweets.

* On YouTube, make any videos that you wouldn’t want everyone to see “Private” when you upload them.
