The Admissions Interview

By: Crissi

The admissions interview is an important component of your application.  It is an opportunity for the Admissions Committee to get to know you better as a person. More importantly, it is a time for you to get a clearer picture of what Simon has to offer you, and how you will fit in within the Simon Community. Once you have completed and submitted your application, the Admissions Committee will make a determination about the interview. Here is a brief description of each interview format:

On-Campus: We in the Admissions Office love to welcome applicants to Rochester for a visit. If you choose to interview between Monday and Thursday – when classes are in session – you will also have the opportunity to go on a campus tour with a current student and sit in on a Simon class.

Phone: This is a 30 minute call where you will be interviewing with an Associate Director of Admissions or a Simon Alumni. At the conclusion of the interview, you will have the chance to ask one to two questions of the interviewer about the Simon community and life in Rochester.

Event: The Admissions office holds events year-round. Events are a great chance to learn more about Simon along with others, and meet with staff, faculty and current Simon students.

No format of interview has any advantage over the next. The most important point is to be well prepared for your interview, relax and allow your interviewer to get to know you. Remember, you were already chosen to take part in an interview.
