Schedule Your Interview

A Bates interview is your opportunity to discuss your interests and ask questions about both Bates and our application process. Please see below for more information, including deadlines to request an interview!

On-campus interviews last 30-45 minutes and take place in Lindholm House at 23 Campus Ave. This fall, interviews will be available Monday through Friday, and on Saturdays from September 26-November 14 (excluding October 24). We encourage you to schedule an interview with a representative from our Admission office by calling 207-786-6000 or 1-855-228-3755.

If you are unable to schedule an on-campus interview, you may interview with a Bates alumni representative. Alumni interviews are available both domestically and internationally, and carry the same weight as an on-campus interview. To request an alumni interview, please fill out our online request form here.
