Personal interviews are not required in order to apply to WPI, but are a great opportunity for WPI to get to know you better one-on-one, while you can learn more about WPI and get questions answered. WPI offers interviews domestically and internationally.

If possible, a campus visit and on-campus interview is often the best way to get to know WPI on a personal level and find out if you can see yourself here.

Key Questions

  • About Personal Interviews
    • Your interview will become part of your file and may influence your admissions decision. If you are unable to interview, your chances for admission to WPI will not be affected.
