Please Join us: Become a Harvard Interviewer!!!

Small Commitment, Big Impact

Each year, many more students apply to the College than can possibly be admitted, but the personal interview reliably provides an opportunity for a meaningful conversation between our alumni/ae and some very inspiring young North Carolinians. This pleasant duty allows us to provide a real service to the Office of Admissions, have a say in Harvard’s future, serve as a resource in our communities, and support quality education in North Carolina.

Intervie11492880_vbvzvrhxzjxiacrikfjdeqcma5wx4dytusc1c6d0zwiws are assigned via an on-line system that makes the logistical aspects of the process simple. The admissions office asks that each interviewer complete from 3 to 6 interviews per year: interviews typically last about 45 minutes, then it takes about the same amount of time to fill out the online report. Depending upon one’s level of interest, a yearly commitment of about 9-15 hours is a reasonable expectation.

Our committee’s rate of interview completion is among the best in the nation, but application numbers keep going up!  We need your help to interview as many of  promising secondary school students and to support Harvard’s outreach to talented students from all locations and backgrounds.
