Interviews aren’t required at Wellesley for first-year or transfer applicants, but are required for our non-traditional age applicants and post-baccalaureate candidates. A one-on-one meeting with someone who knows the community well is a great way to discover if Wellesley is the right place for you. We’ll talk about what excites you, what you’re most looking forward to in college, how you like to learn, what you do for fun, and how Wellesley might match your goals and interests. Leave your suit and resume at home, but bring your questions.
On-campus interviews are typically conducted by trained senior students; off-campus interviews are conducted by trained alumnae volunteers.
Wellesley is a little unique in that most candidates interview before they apply - keep in mind the interview deadline for your chosen decision plan.
- On-campus interviews:
