Today, Christine gives you all the details on Fletcher’s evaluative interview program. Remember to check this page when you plan your interview!
The Evaluative Interview program has kicked into high gear! Appointments are starting to fill throughout the fall, leading to many happy interviewers, who are eager to get to know you!
By now you may be thinking, how can I interview and meet one of Fletcher’s highly trained student interviewers? Well, I am here to answer your interview-related questions.
What is an evaluative interview? Great question! A personal evaluative interview is a valuable way for you to share information about yourself and learn how The Fletcher School will meet your academic and professional goals.
Should I interview? The interview is recommended, but not required, for all applicants; however, PhD applicants are encouraged to interview.
When should I have my interview? Interviews should generally be completed at least one week prior to the application deadline. The interview program kicked off on September 23 and will run through Friday, December 6. Interviews are offered Monday through Friday during business hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Additional interviews will be conducted on a very limited basis until January 9.
When should I schedule my interview? You should schedule your interview as soon as possible, once you have an idea when you would like to visit. We have a good number of appointments available, so it is helpful if you can name a few dates that would be convenient for you. (Note, though, that dates in late November and December fill early!) If you are visiting from out of town (or even down the street!), you may want to schedule your interview in conjunction with an Information Session. More details regarding Information Session dates and times can be found here.
How should I schedule my interview? Please call the office directly at +1.617.627.3040. You should have dates and times in mind when you call, to allow us to best schedule you! If you are unable to call, you can also schedule your interview by email, though this can involve a long back-and-forth process until we find a convenient date. Scheduling by phone is more efficient.
I’m all scheduled! Now what? Once you have scheduled an appointment, you will receive an email confirmation with the date and time of your interview. Make sure you save and read this email thoroughly as it includes directions to the school, as well as what to bring with you (your resume!), practical suggestions (how to dress), and even hints as to the interview content!
If you have questions about the interview program or anything else Admissions related, please call us at +1.617.627.3040 or send us an email.
