The interview process is designed to give applicants a robust, in-person experience of our experiential and relational learning community and curriculum. Interviews include a small group component where applicants are divided into groups of 5-7 to engage in discourse facilitated by a member of our instructional staff.

Your application and supporting documents must be complete to participate in a group interview. Interviews are required for all applicants. Please register for an interview date below.
