Hi gablesdad - yes Vassar is conducting alum interviews. As an alum interviewer, we had a record number of requests for interviews in 2020/21 in my state. It looks like we will be inundated with requests this year as well.

The interviews are informational rather than evaluative. Every little bit can help, but in my 25+ years of interviewing Vassar applicants, these brief meetings can have an impact on only very rare occasions.

Best of luck!

Thanks so much. D22 registered for an interview and is waiting to hear. Do you recall around what time they get around to doing them?

Hi there - interviews are taking place now until March. Last year, we had a 75% increase in requests for interviews in my little New England state and I expect that we’ll have another year of high demand. If you get an interview - great, your daughter is almost guaranteed to have a fantastic conversation with a Vassar alum. If it’s not possible, don’t worry because it won’t affect her chances.
