On-Campus Interviews and Tours
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.
How do I schedule my 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.
I'm in the area, but don't have an appointment. What are my options?
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.
Fall/Winter Schedule (September 16, 2013 - January 31, 2014)

When should I interview?
All interviews must be scheduled by January 15, 2014 and conducted by January 31, 2014 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 interview.
What can I expect?
Tours take about 45 minutes. A current student will take you and your family around campus and answer your questions: What's it like being in a class with only 12 students? What do students do for fun? Is the food really good?
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.
