Schedule Your Interview

Contact us to schedule your interview

We encourage you to schedule an interview with a representative from our Admission office. The interview is your opportunity to discuss your interests and ask questions about the application process. On-campus interviews last 30-45 minutes and take place in Lindholm House at 23 Campus Ave.


For rising high school seniors

On-campus interviews will be offered starting Monday, June 16, 2014, through Friday, November 21, 2014. Please call 1-855-228-3755 to request your on-campus interview. If you cannot schedule an on-campus interview, you can interview with a Bates alumni representative throughout the U.S. and abroad. To request an alumni interview, please fill out an online request form.


Alumni interviews

Alumni interviews are available throughout the U.S. and in many foreign countries. They carry the same weight as an on-campus interview.  To request an alumni interview, please fill out an online request form.
