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.

On-campus interviews

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.

To schedule an interview, please use our online registration form. 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

If you cannot visit campus we would be happy to arrange for an off-campus interview with an alumni representative during the fall of your senior year. Our off-campus interview sign-ups are now closed until next fall, but you may still request an on-campus interview.
