Carnegie Mellon Interviews?

Hello, I'm in the process of applying to Carnegie Mellon. Just curious if they conduct interviews as part of the admissions process. Thanks for any insights!

Hello! Carnegie Mellon University does offer interviews as part of the admissions process, but they are not a requirement nor do they guarantee an interview for all applicants. Interviews are typically conducted by alumni volunteers and are offered during specific time periods during the application process. At CMU, interviews are seen as a way to learn more about an applicant's interests, experiences, and goals, as well as an opportunity for applicants to ask questions about the university.

Keep in mind that interviews can vary depending on the specific college or program within Carnegie Mellon that you're applying to. Some programs may have more focus on interviews than others. To request an interview, you'll want to follow the instructions provided by Carnegie Mellon in your application materials or on their website. It's important to make sure you meet any deadlines or requirements related to requesting an interview.

While interviews can be a great way to make a personal connection and help the admissions committee get to know you better, remember that they are only a small part of the overall application, which also includes your grades, test scores (if applicable), essays, and extracurricular activities. Good luck with your application!
