We strongly recommend scheduling an interview before you submit your application. Although an interview is not required as part of the MSJ application, it’s a great way for us to get to know you and for you to learn more about Medill as you apply.

If upon review of your application we think an interview would be helpful, we will notify you to schedule an interview.

For applicants planning to apply for summer and fall 2018, you can schedule an interview any time before you submit the application up to two weeks after you submit your application. If you can't travel to Evanston or Chicago for an interview, you can sign up for one via Skype. Medill representatives also meet and interview prospective graduate students in many cities throughout the year. Please check this page regularly to see if we have posted new appointments in a city near you.

Schedule an interview

If none of the listed interview times are convenient for you or if no interview slots are currently posted, contact Assistant Director of Graduate Admissions and Financial Aid Melissa Sersland or Associate Director of Graduate Admissions and Financial Aid Julie Collins to schedule one.
