Your Admissions Interview

We want to get to know you: what you’re passionate about, your favorite activity, the last book you read, anything that helps us understand what you love to do. That’s why we require an interview for all applicants. It’s a two-way conversation, so bring your own questions. We want you to get to know us, too.

Interview appointments must be scheduled by Jan. 15. We offer interviews on and off campus.

On-Campus Interviews

We encourage you to visit campus whenever possible. Please complete our online inquiry form prior to your visit. 

Candidates applying for fall 2020 can schedule their interview and student-guided tour now through January 15th.  Please plan on two hours for the visit. 

We request that candidates interested in fall 2021 or 2022 check back after April for our spring and summer schedule.

To schedule your on-campus appointment, please access our portal.

Off-Campus Interviews

If you can’t make it to Exeter, don’t worry. Simply submit the candidate profile (part one of the Gateway online application) and you’ll receive an email with instructions for setting up an off-campus interview.
