Interviewing

Dates: January 24, 30, and 31, 2014; February 22 and 28, 2014

If you meet all of the requirements and satisfactorily pass the introductory course, you will be notified the third week in March that you have been granted a personal interview by video conference call along with the scheduled day and time. Interviews will last about thirty minutes and are scheduled for the final week in March each year. Admissions decisions are made shortly thereafter. We reserve the right to deny an interview to applicants who do not meet the admissions standards.

Possible Outcomes:

Within 2-3 weeks of your interview, we will notify you of the committee’s decision. There are three possible outcomes:

  • Acceptance: The committee decision is that you are qualified to be part of the program
  • Not at this time: The committee feels that you have many strengths and could be a successful student at HUC-JIR, but there are areas that you need to work on prior to reapplying to the program. We will strongly encourage you to reapply to the program once you have worked on the recommended areas.
  • Rejection: The committee has decided that you are not a good fit for our program.
