The Admission staff and our senior interviewers have compiled some helpful advice to consider as your prepare for your admission interview.
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. On-campus interviews are available as follows:
- Weekdays: 9:15 a.m., 10:15 a.m., 11:15 a.m., 1:15 p.m., 2:15 p.m. and 3:15 p.m.
Select Saturdays in the fall: 9:45 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 11:15 a.m., 1 p.m., 1:45 p.m.
On-campus interviews are available to seniors through January 31 and become available to juniors starting on February 1. Because our interviews are often booked weeks in advance, we encourage you to allow adequate lead time in arranging for your visit.
Off-campus interviews are only available to students after the submission of their application for admission. The deadline to request an off-campus interview for the 2018-19 application cycle has passed.

Interviews for transfer applicants
While a personal interview is not required, it is strongly recommended. The interview is informative for both the student and the admission committee. We encourage transfer students to interview on campus. Students who would like to interview but are unable to make it to campus can arrange a phone or Skype interview by contacting Chris Flores, coordinator of transfer admission (email@example.com). The deadline to request a phone or Skype interview is April 19.
