On-Campus Interview

JD program applicants are encouraged to participate in an on-campus interview. On-campus interviews are conducted by either an admissions staff member, alumnus, or current law student.

Please be aware that additional appointments are added to our interview calendar throughout the cycle, so we recommend checking availability regularly.
