First-year applicants may express an interest in meeting with a UChicago alumnus/a in their area. These interviews serve as an opportunity to have a casual conversation about the University of Chicago. Students should come prepared with knowledge of UChicago and a few questions for the alumnus/a.
Applicants may express interest in an Alumni Interview via their UChicago Account after they have begun their application to UChicago. “Interested in an Off-Campus Alumni Interview” will appear near the bottom of your UChicago Account screen under “Forms.” You will not be able to express interest in an Alumni Interview if you have previously interviewed on campus.
After expressing interest in an interview, applicants may be contacted to schedule an appointment based on the availability of alumni in their area, but only after they have submitted their Common Application or Coalition Application, or UChicago Supplement.
