    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 2025. The interviewer will guide the course of your give-and-take conversation, and there will be plenty of time for you to ask questions.

    Interviews with Bowdoin alumni

    Virtual and in-person interviews are available September 1 through December 1 with Bowdoin alumni across the world. These are official admissions interviews and are a great way to learn more about the College.

    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.

    Summer interviews slots for Fall 2025 applicants are now open, starting on May 30. 

    Please note that any interview for Bowdoin is optional and not a required component of the application
