Yale Interview Process

Hi all! Quick question: Does everyone who applies to Yale University get an interview, or are interviews offered based on certain qualifications or location? Any insights would be much appreciated!

6 months ago

Hi! The Yale interview process is designed to provide applicants with an opportunity to share more about themselves, as well as learn about Yale from someone who has experienced it firsthand. Yale interviews are conducted by alumni volunteers around the world. However, not all applicants will be offered an interview.

Interview opportunities largely depend on the availability of alumni interviewers in your area. Since this is based on alumni volunteers and geographical distribution, some applicants might not get an interview due to limited resources or lack of alumni in their region. It's important to note that not being offered an interview does not put you at a disadvantage in the admissions process. Admissions officers will still thoroughly review your application, even without an interview.

If you are offered an interview, it is typically a great opportunity to connect with a Yale alum, ask insightful questions, and share more about your background and interests. Remember that although the interview does provide additional context for your application, it is just one of many factors considered during the holistic admissions process. Good luck with your application!
