Carnegie Mellon Hometown Interviews provide high school seniors with the opportunity to interview with a member of the admission staff in your hometown. During the 30-minute interview, we’ll discuss Carnegie Mellon’s areas of study, admission requirements and student life. This is also an opportunity to discuss your educational objectives and career plans with our staff. Although Carnegie Mellon doesn’t require an interview for admission, it’s highly recommended. Dress is casual. (If you’ve already had an interview with our staff, there’s no need to also attend a Hometown Interview.)

Our Fall 2016 Hometown Interview locations are listed below - Fall 2017 locations and registration will be available by August.
