Welcome to the Princeton Club of Washington - Call for Alumni Interviewers


Call for Alumni Interviewers

Become an alumni interviewer for the DC/MD/VA region and help Princeton select the class of 2023!


Are you looking for a great service opportunity in the DC area?


Join fellow alumni as a Princeton Alumni Schools Committee Interviewer for the 2018-2019 school year in the Washington D.C. region. Alumni help Princeton's Admissions Office by interviewing applicants and acting as ambassadors to Old Nassau. Interested volunteers, both new and returning, please let us know if you want to join our team and help Princeton select a great Class of 2023.


High school students have two choices for applying to Princeton: Single Choice Early Action (due Nov. 1st) or Regular Decision (due Jan. 1st). DC area interviewers are engaged with both Early Action (interviewing through the month of November) and Regular Decision (interviewing in January and February). If your schedule only allows you to commit to one of these timeframes we would still love to have your help. Last year our dedicated alumni interviewed more than 1,250 applicants in the DC, MD and VA regions and we expect another record-setting pool of applicants this year. We can really use your help, whether you can commit to interviewing 1, 2, 3 or more applicants this year!


Interviewing an applicant takes approximately one hour. You meet the prospective student, have a 30-minute conversation and then submit your feedback electronically through the Admissions website.  It's that easy!  We need new interviewers every year and we hope that former volunteers will interview again. Recent graduates are welcome and both undergraduate and graduate alumni can participate.  This is a great opportunity to serve Princeton and connect to the future class of 2023.


Similar to last year's interview season we hope to have both EA and RD regional Blitz interview sessions again. These events allow alumni interviewers to gather together in one location and prospective students travel to the central location for their interview. Our Blitz sessions last year were very successful; we interviewed nearly 75 students at each of our 4 one-day events and had a great time connecting local Princetonians.


The Alumni Schools Committee Chairs for our local regions are:

Maryland Suburbs  Jennifer Cannistra '01, Thanasis Delistathis '93, Dwight Draughon '09, Pamela Franklin '91, Lubna Malik '08, Tonya Miles '82, Phyllis Thompson '77
