Interview Prospective Students

Admissions ambassadors evaluate and inform. They interview prospective students—in person or remotely—to provide the Office of Admissions with greater insights into applicants’ achievements, and they enrich applicants’ understanding of the Dartmouth experience. Meeting with a prospective student and sending a report to Dartmouth takes about an hour—and it’s work that has tremendous impact.
