In Your Area
Let the connecting commence!
You’d like to know more about Wellesley you say? Great! We’d love to give you more information.
“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, click the button below to request an off-campus interview with an alumna near your hometown (if one is available). Otherwise, we’ll coordinate a virtual interview.
What should I expect?
You’ll be interviewing off campus (or virtually!) 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.
When should I request my interview?
Pro tip: the earlier the better!
|High school seniors||June to early December|
September and October
|Fall Transfer or Davis Candidates||January and February|
See the interview request form for the interview request deadline.
Please note, applicants may only have one interview.
On the Road
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.

The deans and directors of admission at the Sister Colleges invite students yearly to join them to learn about our outstanding campus opportunities—internships, research, leadership development, career preparation and social life. Discover how these elements of a liberal arts education translate into powerful outcomes for our alumnae.
We know that you’re busy (you know, with … school, studying, family, friends, extracurriculars, practices, Netflix) and that visiting campus may not be possible. Fret not! Via the miracle of the internet we bring Wellesley admission counselors to you!
Well, virtually at least.
