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. At this time, interviews are only open to applicants who have received login credentials for their applicant portal.
Video interviews are available on weekdays at: 9:15 a.m., 1:15 p.m., 2:15 p.m., 3:15 p.m., and 4:15 p.m.
All times are EST.
Interviews must be completed by the following deadlines for each admission option:
Fall 2022 Admission
Early Decision 2: January 15, 2022
Regular Decision: January 25, 2022
Fall 2021: April 16, 2021
When you schedule your interview, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a link to meet your interviewer in an online video platform. You may want to review the helpful advice our Admission staff and senior interviewers have compiled as your prepare for your admission interview.
