Always tuck, and wear a sportcoat if you have one.

I'm assuming this is a shirt we're talking about? Have you already done your essay?

Unless this is an art school, I'd go with a plain buttondown (paired with a blazer is even better).

Christ, times have changed, I think I did my college interviews in button-downs, rep ties, and a navy blazer. And that wasn't THAT long ago.

An interview?!?! Whether or not to tuck in your shirt shouldn't even be a question. ALWAYS tuck in for an interview.

You might want to think about getting a different shirt, if it is really embroidered.

For an interview you want to look classic and conservative, in my opinion. I suppose it depends largely on the school and the level of formality they expect, but ALWAYS tuck your shirt in; to not tuck in this situation would just appear careless.

I also secodn the idea of a sportcoat.

Sounds like the wrong shirt for an interview.

These days I don't think a tie is expected or even a requisite for applicants. What kind of college is this? Better yet, what college is it?

Seems like an odd time of year for a US college interview... anyway, best of luck, and tuck in the shirt.
