Facilitating and Supporting the Alumni Interview Program
As the number of Chinese applicants to Penn rises, alumni interviews play an increasingly important role in the admissions review process of Penn. Penn alumni speak one-on-one with an applicant, allowing the Alumni Interviewers to share information about Penn and their student experience there and to learn more about the applicant. If you are interested in meeting future Penn students and helping more great Chinese high school students learn about Penn, please visit Penn’s Alumni Interview Program page.
