Interviews for High School Seniors

Put Your Personality Into Your Application ... Literally

Paper applications are two-dimensional. On-campus interviews allow you the opportunity to make your application three-dimensional. Interviews are offered in the summer for rising high school seniors and in the fall for current high school seniors. The interview is an optional component to the application, and the absence of an interview will in no way be a disadvantage in the application process.

Interview Waitlist Protocol

Interviews are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. If a particular interview appointment is full, you will have the option of adding yourself to the event waitlist. As cancellations arise, those on the waitlist will be automatically added to the appointment for which they are currently on the waitlist. The waitlist is limited to 5 students and the interview appointment will no longer appear if the waitlist is full. An automated email will be sent to notify you that you have been removed from the waitlist and confirmed for the appointment.

"I believe this opportunity allowed me to articulate qualities about myself that a paper application just cannot convey. This experience really allowed me to add something substantive to my application and allowed me to get a more intimate feel for the College. The interviewer answered all of my questions and really allowed me to see a more personal side of William & Mary!"      -Summer Interviewee

"Thank you very much for offering me the opportunity to interview. I feel like I really made a contribution to my application. Meeting with a current student was an added bonus. I feel like I learned so much about this university and its students. The whole experience was superb!"   -Summer Interviewee
