Admission interviews are a great way for you to explore—with a Lawrence representative as your guide—how Lawrence University fits with your talents and aspirations.

We offer many different ways for you to have a one-on-one conversation with a member of the Lawrence community, whether it's one of our admissions representatives or alumni ambassadors.

Green Interviews

If you're not going to be on campus soon, or you won't be able to meet with one of our counselors on the road, but you'd still like to have an interview with Lawrence University, fear not: we still have options for you.

We offer Green Interviews via phone and Skype with members of the Lawrence admissions team. We also have Lawrentians all over the world who have been trained to interview prospective students. When you complete a Green Interview request form, we'll be in touch within 5-7 business days to schedule the best possible option.

Off-campus Interviews

When members of the admissions team are on the road, we routinely offer interviews for prospective students. (Please note that priority is given to high school seniors and juniors, as well as transfer students.) Hit that big blue button below to see if we'll be offering interviews in or near your area.

Interviews on the Road

On-campus Interviews

As part of your campus visit, you have the option of interviewing with one of our admission counselors. The two of you can discuss your life inside and outside the classroom, as well as what you hope your life at and after college to be like. (Interviews are offered as part of the Lawrence 201 experience, which you'll see when you jump over to our visit page by clicking the blue button below.)

Alumni Interviews: What to Expect

  1. Interviews with alumni ambassadors will be treated the same as if they were conducted by a member of the admissions staff.
  2. Your interviewer will meet you somewhere in your community, like a coffee shop or a library.
  3. The interview is much a two-way conversation. We want to learn about you while you learn about Lawrence.

Helpful Hints on Phone and Skype Interview Etiquette

  1. When you register, please provide the phone number or Skype Username where you would like to be reached.
  2. Find a quiet place to interview and ensure you have a strong signal or connection.
  3. Please be ready to connect when we contact you (or let us know ahead of time if you need to reschedule).
  4. Please give the interview your full attention--give your homework and phone apps 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. For a Skype interview, dress how you would for an in-person interview. Formal wear isn't required, but it's best not to be in your pajamas.
  6. Be prepared for an engaging conversation. We'll ask you some questions, and look forward to answering whatever questions you might have.
