    "I am interested in attending this college because it is the best way to accomplish my educational goals and ultimately my career goals. This college has a good reputation and I have a lot to contribute."

    U can say u did research on the college and this college above all the others met ur specific needs (like class size, location, etc.)

    Don't gush too much or appear insincere. They can prob. smell that a mile away. How bout u answer it with the truth? Why r u interested in the college. Even stuff that doens't sound good, like u heard it had the best parties, can be turned into ' the social atmosphere is great'.

    Assuming you did some research on the college, you can probably say something along the lines of: Uni of ___ is very prestigious and is ranked ___ in this field so I know I am getting a great education worth every penny of the money invested.

    Tell them that you researched the college (make sure you do, lol) and that you feel that you will get the education you need to develop your skills and help your pursue your chosen career.

    Hope that helps a little bit

    Well... I would start with location (if you like to get away from home or if you like to be near home), reputation of the school, if they have any special programs you're interested in etc..

    If you haven't already visited the college then go visit it. you'll notice things that you like. or just tell them why you are interested in going there. there has to be a reason considering you are applying there!

    Make sure you answer truthfully, but always link the questions to why you would be good here. eg, for question1. you could say something about your "qualities" and how they can help the uni :) hope this help a tiny bit
