Only those candidates deemed highly qualified will be invited for an on-campus interview in the months of June - September. Interviews are mandatory and by invitation only. Selected students will be notified electronically if they are selected for an interview. Candidates should NOT call and request an interview. The interview will be extended by the College's Admissions Office at the approval of the Admissions Committee.
