On-Campus Interviews and Tours
Fall/Winter Schedule: September 15, 2014 - January 31, 2015
We are now interviewing on campus for Fall 2015 admission.
A personal interview is a required part of your application. If you are both touring and interviewing, please allow for a two-hour visit. If you are only touring or only interviewing, please allow for a one-hour visit.
An appointment is necessary for an interview and/or student-guided tour; we cannot accommodate walk-ins. Experience has taught us that scheduling is easiest by phone. Please call 603-777-3437 to schedule your appointment.
If you arrive on campus without an appointment, please feel free to take a self-guided tour. You'll find maps just outside the Admissions Office.
We offer multiple options for tours and interviews in the morning and afternoon, Monday through Friday. We are open several Saturdays for a half day.

When should I interview?
All interviews must be scheduled by January 15, 2015 and conducted by January 31, 2015 in order to receive a March 10 decision. We encourage you to schedule your interview appointment well before the January 15 deadline. It is not necessary to submit an application before scheduling your on-campus interview.
What can I expect?
Tours take about 45 minutes. A current student will take you and your family around campus and answer any questions you might have.
The interview will last about 45 minutes and is meant to be a conversation to get to know you. We'll speak with your parents afterward, so they have a chance to ask questions or voice any concerns they might have.
What are you going to ask me?
We want to meet the person behind the application. We'll ask about your favorite classes and why you like them, your hobbies and extracurricular activities and what you like about school.
