Personal Interviews (approximate time 45 minutes)

At a small, residential, liberal arts college, students are the center of the community. At HWS, we care deeply about the members of our community and those who will choose to join us in the future.

In an effort to enhance our community, we offer students the opportunity to discuss their academic curiosity, personal strengths and goals for the future while learning more about the HWS experience. At the same time, we come to know more about who you are as a person from these conversations, and that’s important to us. Interviews are available on or off campus starting May 1 for high school juniors, and we stop offering interviews for seniors at the end of January.

While not required, we strongly recommend a personal interview. Without one, some students may be at a disadvantage at the time of admission selection. If you are applying for our Trustee and Blackwell Scholars Programs, a personal interview is required.
