Interview slots are limited, so only rising seniors who will apply for the Fall 2021 semester are eligible. Transfer applicants and waitlisted Fall 2020 applicants are not eligible. It is not necessary to have an application on file to secure an interview.
Interview Availability: Fall Update
Interview season has concluded for the Class of 2025.
We know that we were not able to meet with every applicant. If you were unable to schedule an interview, don’t worry. Wake Forest will offer admission to a great number of students who have not interviewed. Please remember that the interview is an optional part of the application.
“What can I do now?” This is a question we hear often.
- First, please remember that there are your essay and short-answer-prompt responses. We look forward to reading them. Our short-response prompts represent questions that are uniquely Wake Forest and thus afford you the opportunity to show us what is “uniquely you.” So, when preparing your essay and your answers to these prompts, take advantage of the opportunity to give us a glimpse into what drives you intellectually. Tell us what you’ve read, what you’ve done, what you think. About what? About anything and everything that is important to you.
- Collectively, the Wake Forest Admissions Committee has over 100 years of experience reviewing applications; we are good at evaluating your stories and seeing all you have to offer. Seek to be as thoughtful with your responses as you believe you would be to questions in an interview. We look forward to learning more about you during application review.
- You are also welcome to submit a short, informal email to your regional admissions representative introducing yourself and giving details as to what you would have shared in an interview.
