Visiting Fletcher/Interviews

Can I visit Fletcher?
Yes. Prospective students are highly encouraged to visit the School, sit in on classes, tour the campus, and meet with current students. Small group information sessions for prospective applicants conducted by current students are regularly scheduled on most Mondays and Fridays during the fall and spring semesters. Please check our schedule to ensure an information session is scheduled on the day you want to visit.
Do you give campus tours?
A Fletcher Information Session includes a tour of the Fletcher complex. We do not offer tours of Tufts University, though it is easy to make arrangements for a tour with the undergraduate Office of Admissions.
Are interviews required?
The interview is highly recommended, but is not a required component of the admissions process. Interviews are offered both in person and on-line. Personal evaluative interviews are an excellent way for applicants to share information and to learn how The Fletcher School will help them meet their academic and professional goals.
How do I set up an interview?

On-campus interviews may be arranged by contacting the Office of Admissions (+1-617-627-3040 or  fletcheradmissions@tufts.edu). Because only a limited number of interviews can be accommodated each day, you should try to schedule your interview well in advance of the date you wish to visit.

Virtual interviews need not be scheduled and are completed at your convenience.  

For more details about interview availability, see our interview page.

I can't come to campus. Can I still have an interview?
Yes, we encourage you to complete an interview through our on-line interview program. 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. Please see further details about video interviews.
Do I schedule an interview before or after I submit my application?
All interviews, both in person and on-line, should be completed one week before your application is submitted. In person interviews are generally offered from September to December, and on-line interviews are offered year around.
Who conducts admissons interviews?
Evaluative interviews are generally conducted by carefully selected and trained current Fletcher students, though members of the Admissions staff also conduct interviews when there is a large number of visiting applicants. The interviewer will ask about your goals and ability to succeed at Fletcher and the interviewer’s notes will become part of your application file.
How should I prepare for my interview?
We recommend that you research The Fletcher School and its programs prior to the interview. Please come prepared to discuss your past experiences, your career goals, and why you are interested in the Fletcher program. Please dress as you would for any job interview and bring a copy of your résumé or curriculum vitae.
