We recognize that in-person interviews aren't always possible. Perhaps you won't be able to visit campus for several months, or maybe you'll miss interviewing with an admissions counselor in your area because of a test/game/concert/family-function. Whatever the reason, don't let it preclude you from learning more about Lawrence University and allowing us to learn more about you.

Lawrence offers Green Interviews via phone, Skype, or locally in person with Lawrence alumni or admissions counselors.
 

Helpful Hints on Phone Interview Etiquette

  1. When you register, please provide the phone number where you would like to be reached.
  2. A phone appointment is still an appointment--please be ready when we call (or let us know ahead of time if you need to reschedule).
  3. Please find a quiet place to interview--we can hear more than you imagine (ex. dogs, younger siblings, Ice Road Truckers on the TV in the next room).
  4. Please give the interview your full attention--give your homework and Candy Crush Saga a break until the interview is over. Even though we can't see you, we can tell when we don't have your attention.
  5. Even though this is a phone interview, it is still an interview--be prepared to answer the same questions we would ask you in person, and please be prepared with your own questions (if you have any).

Helpful Hints on Skype Interview Etiquette

  1. When you register, please provide your Skype username.
  2. A Skype appointment is still an appointment--please be ready when we Skype you (or let us know ahead of time if you need to reschedule).
  3. Please find a quiet place to interview--we can hear more than you imagine, even over Skype (ex. parents providing suggestions, Final Four basketball game on TV in the next room).
  4. Please use a computer or iPad on a stand to Skype. Using your cell phone gives us a limited view of you, and is difficult to stabilize if you are holding it in your hands.
  5. Please place the computer on a desk or table and take time to make sure the camera angle is appropriate and flattering.
  6. Please dress appropriately (which doesn't mean formally)--after all, this is video. We can see you.
