The Alumni Schools Committee is a network of alumni who share a passion for Yale and conduct interviews on behalf of Undergraduate Admissions with the goals of: 1. Providing crucial information about applicants to Yale so that the admissions committee can make better decisions as it shapes the freshman class; and 2. Establishing a Yale presence that educates the local applicants and community about Yale’s unique opportunities, values, and character. In many cases, the interview may be the only time the applicants have direct contact with a Yale community member. As a result, the interview can be an influential moment for the applicant, even beyond the application process. This interaction with applicants can illuminate the University’s strengths and ethos, and for admitted students, it may contribute significantly to their choosing Yale over other attractive options.
