    Interview with Your Bennington Admissions Counselor

    Bennington College

    Cristina Perez Ayala Cano, Assistant Director of Admissions

    Cristina works with First-Year students from KIPP high schools and high schools in AL, AR, AZ, CO, LA, MS, NM, OK, TX, UT, all US Territories, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean

    The Bennington Interview is open to rising seniors and transfer applicants. It is an optional part of the application and a chance for us to get to know you beyond what exists on paper. It’s not just another hoop to jump through, but rather an opportunity for us to have a real conversation about you, your interests, and your ambitions for your college experience.

    If you aren't ready for an interview, we strongly encourage a virtual information session and/or a student-led virtual tour.  They are small group conversations open to students and family members at any point in the college search process.  We also have Virtual Open Houses throughout the year.  Check out what's available here.

    If you are able to visit campus in-person, you can find the campus visit calendar here.  

    If none of the available dates will work, please contact her directly to find another interview date and time. All times listed are in Eastern Time (ET) so be sure to adjust for your time zones accordingly. 

    Additionally, consider these interview deadlines for all of Bennington's application rounds:

    Early Decision 1: interview by November 30
    Early Action: interview by December 15
    Early Decision 2: interview by January 30
    Regular Decision: interview by January 30

    Please note that applicants for Early Decision 1 and Early Action may not interview in January.
