Alumni Interviewing

With early decision applications up 13.5%, Dartmouth Admissions needs your help more than ever to interview the high-quality applicants for the class of 2022 and provide them with a more personal feel for each applicant.

Alumni interviewers serve a critical role in the process, offering a better understanding of an applicant’s character and often helping Admissions to make razor-thin decisions between an admit and denial. In addition, alumni interviewers are often an applicant's first real connection with the College so you play a crucial role in helping applicants truly understand what makes Dartmouth so special.

You can schedule the interviews at your convenience, including via Skype or Facetime, or volunteer to attend one of the super-interview sessions where you can show up and meet multiple applicants. In just an hour of your time, you can meet with one of these impressive applicants and learn about their accomplishments, while sharing what makes Dartmouth unique.

To volunteer to meet these superstars, please email your name, graduation year, and area where you’d like to interview to We will help get you set up to interview and answer any questions you might have.

Join us for a fun night of dinner, dancing, cocktails, casino gambling, and silent auction at one of Southern California's premier movie studios, all to benefit the Lupus Foundation of America. Lupus is an autoimmune disease that affects 1.5 million people living in the United States.

When Josie Pearce '20 was fifteen, she was diagnosed with this debilitating disease. She was a sophomore at Los Alamitos High School and suddenly her world changed forever. Josie came to terms with her diagnosis with help from family, friends, and the Lupus Foundation of America. She soon realized her experience could be used to help others suffering from the same disease, so she became involved with this foundation.

Josie '20, now a sophomore at Dartmouth, is working with the Lupus Foundation of America to be a warrior against lupus by hosting "CHIP" to Make a Difference. Josie is the reigning Miss Berlin-Gorham, NH. She is competing in the Miss NH Pageant of the Miss America organization at the end of April in Derry, NH where her platform is combatting Lupus. 

Join Josie, her family and friends, and Dartmouth alumni as she raises funds, raises awareness, and helps put an end to this cruel and mysterious disease.

Ticket includes dinner, dancing, drinks, and casino gambling. Dartmouth alumni receive 25 extra casino chips! Early bird price of $50 until January 31st.

Thank you for your support! For information on sponsoring a casino table for the event, please contact Tracy Pearce P'20 at
