I was told recently that I had made the short list for a SLAC school. The next step, I assumed, was a phone interview. However, the SC chair instead sent me a list of questions, and asked that I film myself answering them. This video would then be sent via email to the SC chair.
I'm not sure what to make of this, so I am hoping to get your collective opinion. Have any of you also experienced such a request?
I'm not pleased with their request. It assumes that the interview relationship is one way, with me having no opportunity to ask questions to them. But it also feels somehow degrading - like I'm a hopeful contestant for American Idol. Or am I misreading this?
