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. Online interviews are available as follows:
Weekdays: 9:15 a.m., 1:15 p.m., 2:15 p.m., 3:15 p.m., 4:15 p.m., 7:15 p.m. (except for Fridays)
Saturdays: 9:15 a.m., 10:15 a.m., 11:15 a.m., 1:15 p.m., 2:15 p.m.
All times are EDT.
Interviews must be completed by the following deadlines for each admission option:
