On weekdays during the summer tours typically leave at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm. These student-led tours will last approximately one hour, and afterward students are encouraged to meet with an Admissions Counselor to answer questions and go into greater depth than what is discussed on tour. These meetings are separate from interviews and are solely informational.
After students apply, they are encouraged to schedule an interview with their Admissions Counselor. Interviews are both informational and evaluative, and can be conducted either on campus, over the phone, or via Skype. Typically, a student will interview to add qualitative and anecdotal information to otherwise objective criteria.
