We certainly did not want to invite a student to our school without an interview. Financially, it made no sense to have the candidate fly in from South Africa just for the interview. When we found ourselves in a conundrum, it was Skype to the rescue! We scheduled a time that worked in Houston and in South Africa and we did the admissions interview via Skype. We loved her. She loved us. Fast forward two weeks and she's happily enrolled in classes in Houston, Texas.
