Admission Interviews

Interviews are not required but are strongly recommended. 

Interviews help us to get to know you better than an application alone might allow. Interviews are casual conversations that give you a chance to tell us about your interests and accomplishments, as well as your college search and interest in W&L. During the interview, students have the opportunity to ask questions one-on-one of an admission staff member. 

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.

Schedule an Interview

With Admissions Staff

May 1 (of junior year) - November 30 (of senior year)

Until it is safe to resume in-person interviews, we will be offering interviews with our Admission Officers via teleconference. Schedule your interview using the link below.

With an AAP Volunteer

September 1 (of senior year) - January 31 (of senior year)

Alumni Admissions Program (AAP) volunteers are enthusiastic W&L alumni who provide a local connection to the university within students’ local communities. Students should contact their AAP representative as early as possible in fall of their senior year to schedule an interview.

For International Applicants

Alumni interviews are not available for international students living abroad, except in a few countries through our Alumni Admissions Program (see above). International applicants are encouraged instead to participate in an online interview conducted by InitialView, Vericant, or Duolingo.
