    @ahardboiledegg Honestly be frank. My why brown essay was literally about the outlets on the lamppost on the quiet green and how I felt that gave me a sense about the laidback vibe at brown and that I really loved it

    really? I wrote about the renaissance and humanism and somehow made it fit

    I took the interview. I didn't want to do a video because I believe that my personality isn't something that can be revealed in a two-minute clip. Honestly, I feel having a single conversation with me accomplishes a lot more if you want to know who I am.

    I contacted the admissions office awhile ago, and they said interview invites haven't been sent out yet.

    Have people who are applying ED already been contacted by alums to set up interview times? I'm starting to get nervous because I chose an alum interview on my portal but I haven't heard anything yet...I emailed Brown interviewing but haven't received a response

    Haven't heard about an alumni interview yet either - I did notice there is a date of 11/9 listed on their website as a deadline to request interviews so maybe they will start scheduling after that date

    Okay, I hope that's why. I've been getting paranoid that I did something wrong and my application didn't submit or something!

    @RedMan108 That's surprising. I haven't, and I'm ED. Where are you from? I live in South Florida.

    Are Brown Alumni interviews selective (some sort of pre-screening) or randomly connected by some system based on the location and available alumni? I recall seeing in one of the forums that someone was accepted w/o alumni interview.

    Are Brown Alumni interviews selective -- NO! NO! NO! (read my FAQ post about interviews stickied at the top of the forum).

    While things have certainly changed this year, some things have not changed. When you hear from an alum about an interview is dependent on the volunteer interviewers. Some alums set up interviews the moment they get your name. Others wait because they are human beings with lives or are lazy or forgetful. Same with the alumni who make the assignments. Some wait until all the names are in the system, others will make assignments the moment the applicant's name is posted on the website.

    The Boston area is huge, with hundreds of ED applicants. It is split into a few different regions with different volunteers in charge. Just because one person got an interview in Boston doesn't mean every applicant should have been contacted already.

    I've already interviewed the student I was assigned.

    And every year students are accepted who did not have an interview.

    738 students out of 3502 applicants were accepted under last year's ED round. While this shows an increase in acceptance rate from RD, one has to also consider recruited athletes and other recruited students with these numbers. The majority of students in ED are deferred to the RD round. The results usually come out middle-December, with last years coming out on December 14.

    Do not worry about interviews. My son is a freshman at Brown. He and his interviewer were never able to hook up. He got in. It became a big joke when they met after he got in. I’m inclined to think the interview doesn’t matter much.
