Schedule an Interview

Let’s talk!

“Interview” sounds so formal. This is more of a conversation—a chance for you to talk to an interesting, knowledgeable person about your future.

We can talk on campus, near your hometown (thanks to our alumnae network), or through the magic of a video conferencing app.

Applicants may have only one interview. If you have had or plan to have an on-campus interview, please do not request an off-campus interview, and vice-versa.

What to expect during your interview

If you’re interviewing on campus, you’ll talk with a trained senior student. If you’re interviewing off campus, you’ll talk with a trained alumnae volunteer. Either way, you’ll be having a conversation with a smart, engaged person who wants to know more about 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. We won’t read from a script, we don’t have a formal list of questions, and we’re not looking for “right” answers. This is basically a getting-to-know-you session: You’re getting to know Wellesley, and we’re getting to know you.  

Important note: You don’t need to wear a suit or bring a resume to impress us.
