Interview

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

We will match you with a nearby interviewer (thanks to our global network of over 30,000 alumnae😊) who is excited to connect with you through the magic of a video conferencing app. Applicants may only have one interview.

What should I expect?

You’ll be interviewing 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.

On the Road

Based on COVID-19 recommendations from the CDC, the College has suspended all in-person and on-campus events until further notice. 

Wellesley admission officers will offer sessions at virtual fairs hosted by schools or other organizations around the world. We will email you once these events have been confirmed so you're the first to know! We look forward to connecting with you and your parents at these events. 

Every fall and spring, Wellesley’s admission counselors travel across the country visiting high schools, attending college fairs, and hosting informational meetings for you and your parents.

In some areas, our terrific alumnae volunteers—as representatives of our office—attend fairs and host events as well. This is a great opportunity to meet an admission counselor or chat with an alumna about her experiences at Wellesley. 

Check out if we’re in your area coming up!
