Students sometimes are told that the sign of a good interview is that it lasts longer than the time allotted. Not true. During interviewing season, most colleges schedule interviews so tightly that it isn't possible to let one interview run long without skewing the entire schedule. So don't worry if your interview lasts exactly as long as the secretary said it would. Remember to be considerate of the people in line behind you: don't try to stretch out the end of your interview by suddenly becoming long-winded.
