How do I arrange to have a local interview?
Applicants do not arrange their own interviews. In many parts of the United States and around the world, Yale Alumni Schools Committees (ASCs) serve as liaisons between prospective Yale students and the Undergraduate Admissions Office. The ASCs conduct all local alumni interviews. As admissions applications are processed, each ASC receives the names of local applicants and schedules individual interviews over the course of the application season.
After you submit your freshman application, Yale will send you an email to acknowledge that we have received it. That email will also indicate whether an ASC covers your area. If an ASC member can meet with you, he or she will contact you directly to schedule an interview.
You will not be offered an alumni interview until after you have submitted your application.
ASC interviews are available in most regions of the United States and in many other countries, but there are some areas where we are not able to offer them. If an ACS interview is not available to you, please do not worry. It will not hurt your chances for admission. Each year many candidates are admitted without the benefit of an interview.
