Admissions » Visit » Personal Interviews

We take interviews personally. It’s our best way of getting to know you, and for you to get to know us.

Whether face-to-face or via webcam, it is our priority to put a personality with a name in our search for future Wake Forest students. The interview provides us with a personal and unrehearsed component to the admissions process, and offers the prospective student a preview of what they can expect should s/he choose to attend Wake Forest.

Interviews are no longer available for Fall 2015 applicants.
