Visit Activities:


Admissions Interview: Yes - My interviewer only graduated from Wellesley this past spring, so I don't think she was very experienced with conducting college interviews. She didn't seem very enthusiastic, which made me

Information Session: Yes

Campus Tour: No - It was raining, and my dad and I had already wandered around campus enough trying to find the admissions office to get the general feel of the place.

Campus Visit Notes for Wellesley College


Visit Description:

If it hadn't been for the rain, I think I would have had an excellent time. I was very impressed with the info session and the campus. Even the less-than-great interview won't deter me from applying. It's a very good school :)
