On-Campus Interviews and Tours

We are currently interviewing for Fall 2016 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 scheduling is easiest by phone. Please call 603-777-3437 to reserve your appointment.

If you arrive on campus without an appointment, please feel free to take a self-guided tour. You'll find campus maps just outside the Admissions Office in the mailbox on the fence post to the right of the steps.

When should I interview? 
All interviews must be scheduled by January 15, 2016 and conducted by January 31, 2016 in order to be considered for 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 guide 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 two-way conversation to get to know you. We will 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.
