ABOUT THE INTERVIEW
An interview is required to be considered for admission. Interviews must be pre-scheduled using our online reservation system. In-person interviews are held on campus in Chicago and in select regional locations. If an in-person interview cannot be scheduled, phone and Skype interviews are also available.
You will interview one-on-one with a faculty member from the department to which you are applying. We believe that during the interview, the questions you have for us are as important as the questions we have for you. There is no fixed format or schedule of questions for the interview, so you will be evaluated as an individual by an individual. The faculty member who conducts the interview will be interested in your theatre experiences, academic record, personal achievements, extracurricular activities and plans for your artistic future (especially as they relate to playwriting.) The best preparation for the interview is to be curious; come with plenty of questions about courses, instructors, student life and anything else you would like to discuss.
