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—near your hometown (thanks to our alumnae network), or through the magic of a video conferencing app. Applicants may have only one interview. 

To start the interview process, request an off-campus interview with an alumna near your hometown, if one is available). Otherwise, we’ll coordinate an online interview.

What to expect during your interview

If you’re interviewing off campus or virtually, you’ll talk with a trained alumnae volunteer. You’ll have 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.
