An admissions interview is a valuable way for you to share information about yourself and to learn how The Fletcher School will meet your academic and professional goals. The evaluative interview is a recommended, but not a required, part of the admissions process. PhD applicants, in particular, are encouraged to schedule an interview.
We offer both On-Campus and Skype Interviews. Interviews are evaluative, not informational, and a report of the interview will become part of the interviewee’s application record.
On-Campus Interviews can be scheduled online up to 24 hours in advance. If you wish to schedule an appointment with less than 24 hours notice, please call the Admissions Office during business hours.
Optional evaluative interviews via Skype are available on a limited first-come, first-served basis. Skype interviews are intended for applicants who plan to enroll in January or September of the coming year, who are outside the Boston area, and who are unable to travel to campus for an interview. Most interviews will be conducted by current Fletcher students. In order to be eligible for a Skype interview, you must upload a copy of your résumé (c.v.) and provide your Skype user name during the registration process.
