The interview is the second portion of the application process and will inform final decisions regarding admissions and acceptance. Once the program’s Application Committee has reviewed and evaluated all submitted, complete applications, exceptional applicants will be invited to interview. Should you be invited to interview, you can expect to be contacted by mid-January. Interviews will be conducted virtually. Most programs have multiple interview date choices. Accepted candidates will have the opportunity to visit St. Louis and Washington University in February and March.

Find out more about our interview process in the Interviews section of “What Makes an Application Strong“.
