Interview day is an important part of the ICO application process. We review our candidates holistically, this gives us a chance to get to know one another.
We look forward to meeting the highly-motivated and passionate person you are. Interview Day gives you the ability to meet current students, faculty, and staff, as well as to participate in an interview and get your own questions answered.
Interview Day Setup
During interview day, you will receive information on academics, career services, financial aid, and student support services. You will also take a campus tour and have lunch with current students.
You will have a one-on-one interview with a faculty member or a member of the admissions committee.
I really never thought I would be a city person (in the sense that I want to stay in the city forever.) I never want to leave such a great area. There's constantly something new to do in Chicago.

Stay at ICO
The night before your interview, you can stay in our Residential Complex (RC) at no cost. An RC Ambassador will host you and answer all your questions. One guest may accompany you in your room at the RC during your one-night stay.
