In Full (Inter)view

When we began including optional personal interviews as part of our application process, it generated a lot of questions:

  • Why do you do it?
  • What are you looking for?
  • What do you ask?

Plain and simple: we do it because we want to know as much about you as possible in the admissions process. We hope you’ll consider connecting with us for webcam interviews.
