When you schedule your interview, you’ll receive a confirmation email. You may want to review the helpful advice our Admission staff and senior interviewers have compiled as your prepare for your admission interview.
People don’t join the Hamilton community for just four years; they belong for a lifetime. For many students, membership in that enduring community begins with the personal interview. Furthermore, because the admission committee works hard to ensure “fit” with Hamilton when determining admission decisions, personal interviews are strongly encouraged.
An interview will not only provide us with a strong sense of your personal strengths and interests that may not be obvious in an application, it will also give you a chance to ask questions and learn more about Hamilton in a personal setting.
Personal interviews are conducted by admission officers or Hamilton seniors who are carefully selected and trained for this purpose. Hamilton offers two options for personal interviews, a video option or an in-person interview on campus.
Video interviews are available on weekdays during the day, most Thursday evenings, and select Saturdays through December 17. Schedule a video interview.
A limited number of in-person interviews are available on campus on select Saturdays in the fall. These interviews are open only to individuals who have received the COVID-19 vaccine (both doses of a two-dose vaccine, or one dose of a single-dose vaccine) and will be held outdoors, weather permitting. Interviews are scheduled at 10 a.m., 10:45 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 12:15 p.m. All times are EDT. Schedule an on-campus interview.
