Admissions Live!

The WPI Office of Admissions provides multiple opportunities for prospective and accepted students to connect with current WPI students to ask questions and learn more about the university.

Events are primarily held through a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) thread on WPI's subreddit. AMAs give you an opportunity to post questions in a thread, receiving direct answers. We also host an Accepted Student livestream every April offering another forum to ask questions.

Missed the event or can't wait? We're happy to answer questions at any time. Send an email through our form to request a chat with a current student, faculty member, graduate, and an Admissions or Financial Aid counselor.

Reddit's "Ask Me Anything" sessions

Reddit AMA for interested students: October 9, 2018

"I will be honest in saying that WPI was not my first choice, but after ending up here, I would choose WPI every day. One word that I would use to describe WPI is community. This campus is so supportive and encouraging, and pushes you to grow every day into a self-sufficient successful person in STEM."

Current students at WPI hold AMAs 2-3 times a year. Check out the archives if you want to read more of their answers!
