FAQ

Admissions Events and Visits

Q. Will failure to visit campus negatively affect my candidacy?
A.

No, but we encourage you to visit campus because it is the best way to learn about the program, the university and Nashville, and to meet members of the Owen community. We strongly encourage you to visit before you make a final decision about attending Vanderbilt. Most candidates prefer to visit during the academic year so that they can visit while classes are in session.

Interview Process

Q. How important is the interview in relation to the rest of the application?
A.

The interview (by invitation only) is an important component of the application and provides you with an opportunity to share your story, and us with a chance to get to know you! We hope to hear about experiences from your personal and professional life, to get a sense of your interpersonal and communication skills and to learn about your marketing career goals.

Q. How long do interviews last?
A.

The interview usually lasts 30 to 45 minutes. In general, the goal of the interview is to assess your maturity, judgment, professionalism, initiative, interpersonal and team skills, communication skills and ability to think critically.

Q. Is there an advantage to interviewing on campus?
A.

An on-campus interview provides an insider's view and is the best way to gain a realistic impression of life as an Owen student. Visiting campus gives you the chance to attend class, have lunch or coffee with a current student, meet with our career management staff and, if approved, conduct your evaluative interview in person.

Q. What can I expect during the interview?
A.

We conduct a structured conversational interview. We are interested in evaluating all candidates on a common set of criteria, but we also want to discover your individual story, unique talents and personal ambitions. Your interpersonal skills, communication abilities and professional presence are at least as important as the specific content of the interview. We expect that you will wear business professional attire.

Q. Do I have to come to Nashville for my evaluative interview?
A.

No. We recognize that it's not possible for everyone to travel to campus, so we can conduct an online interview.

Q. What is Vanderbilt's policy on interviews?
A.

An evaluative interview is required before an offer of admission can be extended. Interviews are by invitation only. You may interview with an admissions director on campus or online. If you are invited to interview, we email you with instructions for scheduling an interview.
