Admissions Interviews

General Information

Interview Format 

All interviews will take place virtually for the 2021 admissions cycle.  We share your disappointment that we are not able to provide the full experience of visiting the University of Louisville.  However, the health and safety of all our applicants as well as our current students, faculty and staff is of utmost importance.  We hope to offer a virtual experience that provides many of the same benefits as an in-person visit.  You will still have the opportunity to interview and meet with faculty, administration, and current students. 

The interviews and activities will take place over Zoom. You will receive a meeting join link with your invitation. Applicants who anticipate problems with internet connectivity or connecting to Zoom should let us know by email or in the pre-interview survey so that we can make appropriate accommodations.

Dates

Interview dates for admission in 2021 are Thursday, January 21, Friday, January 29, and Wednesday, February 10.  The virtual sessions will take place from 8:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.  Applicants are only expected to attend one interview day and will have an opportunity to indicate date preference with your invitation. 

Dress

Formal dress is not required for the interviews. We suggest business casual attire.  We suggest a plain background for your Zoom, you are welcome to use a virtual background if you have that capability.
