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, please call the Admission Office at (800) 843-2655. Because our interviews are often booked weeks in advance, we encourage you to allow adequate lead time in arranging for your visit.
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.
The deadline for requesting an off-campus interview was December 15 and we are no longer able to accept new requests. This deadline ensured a reasonable amount of time for our office to process the request and for an Alumni Admission Representative to arrange and conduct the interview as well as submit an evaluation to the Admission Office before the January 1 deadline. On-campus interviews are available until January 31 and may be scheduled by calling the Admission Office at (800) 843-2655.
