Interview Options

Take some time to learn more about Bryn Mawr while we learn about you.

While interviews are not required*, we strongly encourage you to interview if you can. Interviews help us learn more about you beyond your transcript and your essays. It’s also a great time to ask questions about Bryn Mawr from a member of the community.

Interviews must be completed by the deadline under which you are applying. Interviews for rising seniors will begin in June.

*We reserve the right to require an interview for students who are homeschooled, graduating early, or attending cyber school.

"Bryn Mawr interviewers simply want to have a conversation with you. They genuinely want to learn who you are and why you’re interested in being a part of the Bryn Mawr community."
