Interview Weekends

After all applications have been received and reviewed by our Admissions Committee, qualified candidates are invited for one of two virtual interview weekends hosted by PIBS.

Prior to your interview, you will have the opportunity to review and select faculty with whom you would like to meet and be introduced to your student host via email. A complete itinerary will be sent to you before the day of your interviews.
