There are some things that you could do in an interview that really could ruin your chances.

Waiting to hear whether or not you got into a college may just be the toughest part of the college admissions process. Even though all the work is done, if you are a worrier, suddenly having additional time on your hands to think about all your worst-case scenarios can prove to be quite stressful and exhausting. And if you happened to have had a bad interview, you may think that you completely ruined your chances of getting into your dream college. Fortunately, the interview plays only a small role in getting in, and is certainly less important than your college essays, grades, and test scores. Interview gaffes do make great stories though, especially if you do end up getting an acceptance letter. Here is an example from this article of one student who did end up getting into MIT:

“I put my hand down on the table just after he put the tea on the table. What I didn’t realize was that this was the tipsiest table ever, and this enormous kettle of tea spilled onto my interviewer’s lap, so there’s your first impression.”
