    Personal Interview FAQs

  • Who can interview?

    Only rising seniors who have applied for the Fall 2022 semester are eligible. Transfer applicants and waitlisted Fall 2021 applicants are not eligible.

  • When can I interview?

    For the Class of 2026, we look forward to making our application available in early August. The option to interview with us will be offered after you have applied.

  • How long will my personal interview take?

    Interviews will last approximately 25 minutes. They are evaluative and will become part of your application file, so be prepared for a thorough and thoughtful interview – ranging from topics such as your high school and classes, your academic interests and most treasured books, to your talents and service work, to what you think about and what you do (when you aren’t studying!), to current events.

  • Are interviews required?

    No; they are optional. This is simply another opportunity for us to get to know you better. Plenty of people will be admitted without an interview. Again, it is not required.

Campus is currently open to visitors who would like to take a self-guided tour. Student-led tours will start on July 7 by reservation only.
