Tips/General Information for the interview:
Be sure to upload your resume with all updates for your interviewer to review prior to selecting interview.

  • Be sure to wear business attire to the interview, regardless of where it is conducted.  

  • Be sure to allot approximately forty-five minutes for the interview even though the interview itself is 30 minutes.

  • Plan to arrive for your interview early. Parking, transportation, traffic or other such obstacles should be planned for. We will be maintaining a tight schedule for On-Campus interviewing so accommodating late arrivals may not be possible.

  • Be yourself - the interview is an opportunity for the Admission Committee to learn more about you. It is important that you share your stories with us, and avoid telling us what you think we would like to hear.

  • All interviews, regardless of the interviewer, are weighted the same. You may be interviewed by an alumnus, admissions committee member or a current second year admissions fellows.
