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. Interviews are should be completed at least one week before your application is submitted. We offer both on-campus
Campus interviews are generally conducted by carefully selected and trained Fletcher students, and occasionally by admissions staff. The format is relaxed and allows you to share information that may not have a place in the application. The interviewer will take notes which will become part of your application file.
Interviews are generally conducted Monday through Friday from September through December 7th, and on a limited basis until January 9th and during the summer months. As availability is limited, we encourage you to schedule your interview well in advance of the desired date.
To schedule an interview, please call the Office of Admissions at +1.617.627.3040.
Fletcher is pleased to offer the opportunity to submit a video interview to share information about yourself and explain how The Fletcher School will meet your personal and professional goals.
While video interviews are optional, they can provide valuable supplemental information to your application, particularly if you were unable to complete an on-campus interview. If you completed an on-campus interview, you are still welcome to submit a video interview as well.
The video interview allows you to respond to pre-recorded questions from current students. Each response may be up to two minutes, and answers are recorded. The entire process can be completed in 15 to 20 minutes.
