COVID-19 Announcements for Interviews

Virtual Interviewing

Applicants selected for an interview will receive direct communications about the virtual interviewing platform and process.

Interviews will have both asynchronous (recorded) and synchronous (live virtual) components to be completed within their selected interview week.

Interviews will be standardized and reviewed/scored by a faculty member and by a community member, just like our in-person process.

Virtual interviews may be done via mobile device or computer. PC or Apple products are acceptable.

The entire interview season will be virtual and all selected applicants will be subject to the same interview format and review. Due to the nature of this new process, applicants will no longer be given access to the 50 question bank for preparation, but instead will receive a smaller sample of questions for preparation.

In addition, applicants will get presentation content, normally delivered on an in-person interview day, regarding our school and degree program. Opportunities to also speak with Student Ambassadors and staff will be included in the schedule.

For questions or concerns, please contact us at
