    Are internationals likely to be admitted if we interviewed only with an alumnus, but not an adcom?
  • indianhopeful24indianhopeful24 Registered User Posts: 9 New Member
    @worldwide1 I spoke to my counsellor about this because I got quite stressed about now having an interview with an adcom. She said as long as you've interviewed with someone, it should not matter. Some people on the thread have not even gotten interviews with alumni so I guess we should be happy with what we got.

    @independent413 Hey!
    My IB predicted is a 44, 33 ACT, superscore 34, 700+ in 4 SAT 2s
    IB term grades were 42/42, 42/42, 41/42, 41/42 and mid year report will also be a 41/42
    Did you end up getting an interview? I really hope you did. From what I read, there was another Indian waiting for an interview offer as well
    I'm as stressed as anyone here on college confidential. Really rooting for all of us to get in

    No int'l applicant (and few domestic applicants) are "likely to be admitted." If your question is "Can an int'l applicant be admitted if we interviewed only with an alumnus, but not an adcom?" then the answer is yes.

    I see absolute majority of posts here are about interview. What about countries not listed at Harvard interviews site, as UAE for example? It said: "If your country is not listed on this page, we do not have local interviewers available. The lack of an interview will not affect your candidacy."
    But how it is in reality? Must we make some attempts to get interview or just sit and wait? And does it bad sign that nobody contacting? Because I see common opinion is that impossible to be admitted without interview despite statement at site.

    @Alezzz They specifically stated "local interviewers", so it's likely that any students they're seriously considering would be contacted for an adcom interview around this time, judging from past threads.

    Ok, let's see

    Did any of you happen to receive an interview? I'm from Lebanon and still haven't received one.
  • worldwide1worldwide1 Registered User Posts: 50 Junior Member
    Has any international student received an adcom interview after an alumni interview?
  • worldwide1worldwide1 Registered User Posts: 50 Junior Member
    For post #56, I mean for this year.

    @worldwide1 I haven't. IMO, if someone already had an alumni interview, I think the committee would have enough information to base their judgment on - unless there were two or three borderline applicants they had to choose from.

    @salamandereyes Are you from Spain? Your name reminded me of the little salamander we tried to find in Salamanca, which legend says bringing good grades to students and definitely proved to be true, haha.
