The Interview

Overview:
The purpose of these instructions is to allow the current rush chair(s) on how to perform an Omega Delta Phi style interview. This means that future generations of brothers can use these instructions to perform an interview that is transparent between the interest and the brother(s) holding the interview. In this document you will find how to control the setting, different levels of questions ranging from feedback to „bid-critical‟ questions, and transitioning towards the end of the interview with the proper information.
