Alumni Schools Committee

The Yale Alumni Association of the Northwest maintains an Alumni Schools Committee which NEEDS alumni from any Yale school interested in interviewing prospective Yale College students from all parts of Minnesota, western Wisconsin and along the Dakota and Iowa borders.

Interviewing has proven to be an excellent way to connect with the next generation of Yale students. We hope you can join us and the many other alumni interviewers. Resource and training materials are available.

Time commitment – on average, four applicants per year. For more information, please email:

YAANW has about two hundred volunteer interviewers seeing close to four hundred applicants annually. Currently about six percent are accepted. The interviewers work closely with those accepted with over 80 percent on average attending Yale.

Yale Admissions staffers visit each fall leading sessions open to prospective applicants and parents and visiting selective schools.

All four region leaders welcome more volunteers! For more information, please contact the leader of your region or for general questions contact Malcolm McDonald.
