Personal interviews are your chance to meet one-on-one with an Admissions staff member. We'll have the chance to learn more about you, and we can answer specific questions you may have regarding the admissions process or WPI in general. Interviews are designed to be informational but information shared is added to students' application files.

If you live locally to WPI or plan to visit the campus, we encourage you to schedule your interview on campus.

Scheduling an Interview

Interviews are offered off campus for seniors in high school. Dates and locations for Fall 2019 are below.

What to Expect

  • Off-campus interviews are conducted by a WPI admissions counselor and last approximately 30–45 minutes.
  • Students interested in interviewing will be granted only one interview, whether on campus or off campus.
  • For your interview, be prepared to talk about yourself, including your senior year academic schedule, your interest in WPI, and why you feel that you are a good match for our programs.
  • You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and share additional personal information.
  • A summary of your interview will become part of your admission file and may influence the admission decision we make.
  • If you are unable to schedule an interview your chance for admission to WPI will not diminish.
  • Please note that interviews are intended for students only. Parents and family members are invited to relax during your student’s interview. Parents will have the opportunity to speak with the admissions representative after the interview has concluded.
