Interviewing is like having a chat to uncover your story. It’s not just about what’s on paper; it’s about delving into your adventures, dreams and ambitions for your college journey.
Interviewing is a great way for us to get to know you better and to help us gain insight into your personal experiences, passions and goals. Your interview at Dickinson is also an excellent opportunity for you to explore the college, get vital questions answered and enhance your application.

Participating in an interview is optional and not required for admission to Dickinson.
If you wish to interview, you must do so before your application deadline.
Interviews are available to current or rising high-school seniors or prospective transfer students.
Virtual interviews are typically conducted by students’ admissions counselor via Zoom. Students can contact their admissions counselor to request an interview. Virtual interviews are only available to high school seniors at this time.
Dickinson looks forward to sponsoring in-person, off-campus Interview Days in the future. These programs provide great opportunities to connect with admissions staff and alumni and parent volunteers. Check back for Interview Day locations and dates.
WHAT IS AN INTERVIEW LIKE AND SHOULD I HAVE ONE?
Interviewing (offered both in-person and virtually) is a great opportunity to tell us more about you, your interests, and your fit with this school. Interviews can help us assess personal experiences, motivation, maturity and your potential fit with Dickinson.
