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.
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.
- We strongly recommend interviews for home-schooled students. We are unable to offer interviews with transfer candidates.
- Interviews are intended for students only. Families can relax during the interview and will have a chance to speak with the admissions representative after the interview.
Scheduling an Interview
- Dates and locations for Fall 2019 are available in the next section below.
- Interviews are for seniors only.
- Students interested in interviewing will be granted only one interview, whether on- or off-campus.
- Appointments are limited, so click the link for the city in the section below and book as soon as possible.
What to Expect
- Interviews are with a WPI admissions counselor.
- Interviews last approximately 30–45 minutes.
- 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 should feel free to ask questions and share additional personal information.
