    Sign up for an interview


    An interview is strongly encouraged, but not required, as part of the application process. Interviews are available to anyone applying for first-year admission for the fall of 2023. The interviewer guide the course of your give-and-take conversation, and there will be plenty of time for you to ask questions.

    Interviews with admissions staff or students

    A limited number of on-campus and virtual interviews are available with an admissions staff member or trained student interviewer. Choose a date from the calendar.

    Interviews with Bowdoin alumni

    Virtual and in-person interviews are available September through December with Bowdoin alumni across the world. These are official admissions interviews and are a great way to learn more about the College. Sign up for an alumni interview.

    Veterans and current members of the U.S. military

    Request an online interview by using the veteran interview request form. Please refer to the form for deadlines. 
     


    You do not need to have submitted your application before you interview. Only one interview is permitted per student—and no matter how you interview, it will count as official.

    Each Friday morning (by 10 a.m. eastern time), we'll post additional virtual interviews for the following week, if available.
