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. On-campus interviews are available as follows:

To schedule an interview, call the Admission Office at 800-843-2655. Because our interviews are fully booked weeks in advance, you should try to schedule an interview well before your intended visit.

Off-Campus Interviews

If you cannot visit campus for an interview, we would be happy to arrange for an off-campus interview with an alumni representative during the fall of your senior year. 

We will begin assigning off-campus interviews after September 1 so if you are unable to make it to campus between now and then, be sure to revisit this page in the fall to learn more about how to request an off-campus interview for Hamilton.
