Interview with Admissions

We want to know what you’re passionate about, what your dream career is, and what you’ve been doing to make it happen. This is your chance to set yourself apart from other applicants. Interviews, though not required, are strongly recommended. Senior admissions fellows and admissions counselors conduct on-campus interviews during the spring, summer, and fall.
