Admission Interviews

Interviews are not required but strongly recommended. 

Interviews are casual conversations that give you a chance to tell admissions staff about yourself, your accomplishments, college search, and interest in W&L. It also gives students an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about W&L or the admissions process. Students who are unable to travel to Lexington may be able to conduct interviews with an Alumni Admissions Program (AAP) volunteer in their area. 

Interviews with an admission staff member and interviews with an Alumni Admissions Program (AAP) volunteer are valued equally in our admissions process. A majority of students complete their interview with an AAP member. Students may only complete one interview.
