Please join us at the seminar for an informative and lively discussion on what Harvard College looks for from the alumni interview and on how to conduct an excellent and informative interview.  This year we are especially pleased that Rachel Orol will be able to join our session.  Alumni interviews remain a crucial part of the admissions process – particularly as Harvard continues to extend its outreach to students of any and all socio-economic backgrounds. 


Participation in School Commitee work is open to alumni/ae of Harvard College and our graduate schools.  Important prerequisites include broad knowledge of the College, enthusiasm for your experience as a student at Harvard, familiarity with the Harvard undergraduate experience, and sincerity of purpose in working with prospective college students, their families, schools, and the general public.


If you already interview for us, THANK YOU – we hope to see you at the seminar.  If you can’t come to the seminar, please do contact your area chair to confirm availability for interviewing this upcoming season. 


If you don’t - please consider joining our team.  New interviewers are always welcome!  We have an experienced team of area chairs who will work with you individually to get you up to speed. 


Over 900 high school seniors from northern New Jersey applied last year – and we expect a similar number this year.  Our club aims to interview every applicant – something we can not do without your help. 


Those of us who do interview agree that the few hours we spend with these high school seniors – many so distinguished and inspiring at such a young age – to be among the most worthwhile we spend every year. 



We hope to see you September 24th!
