    an alum (not in the adcom) deems the applicant as High/Low priority?
    An alum is not making that determination; it comes from much higher up the food chain.
    surely they shouldnt matter in the application process?
    I gave my opinion on this higher up on the page.

    FWIW: The "High/Low priority" directive comes from the Admissions office (NOT the alumni chapter).

    And, as I've replied to you in other posts: IMHO, the interview is just NOT informative but acts to weed out applicants who are not a good fit for the college,

    @gibby Gotcha. @skieurope Thanks for your helpful insights. I understand.

    So basically the low priority ones are the 'weed outs'? I'm speculating here.

    So in this case I'm guessing an interview helps aid the overall personality of the applicant portrayed, and thus help give them a high/low priority as a result?

    Thanks!

    Did Harvard say more than 15,000 alumni/ae help them recruit students from all 50 states and from around the world? I think there are plenty alumni for the interview, at least within the State. So no need to over analysis it.

    does anyone know when RD for Harvard comes out? I saw on my Yale portal that they are releasing on March 28 do you think that is Ivy Day for this year?

    @fanofthemcu Id say it depends on alum avail. but mainly on the adcoms need of additional data from you.

    I'm a little confused about this. Why would Harvard send out any LLs at this point? If you are accepted elsewhere you don't have to make a decision until May, so what does Harvard gain?

    what does Harvard gain?
    Taking athletic recruits out of the equation, because the purpose of LL's makes more sense for them, the reasons are:
    A. Because everyone else does
    B. Ostensibly, it's a recruiting tool to reach out to their desired top applicants.

    However, with yields in the 80's, I'm still going with A.

    They do (in general), but they also get LL's in the SCEA round because (short answer) Ivy League does not participate in National Letter of Intent. Harvard then sends about ~100 LLs in the RD round; those are not for athletes.

    @skieurope So how many are athletic studends in those 900 some kids who got in early (SCEA)? Are you saying RD round of LL is only about 100? When people said 300is in total has included those 230 who got in at early around, right?

    Ivy League colleges can recruit up to 230 student-athletes per year. Not all go that high. Yale for a while was targeting 177 as an example.

    Harvard has never said how many slots it uses. My guess (based in part that it has the most teams) is that it is amongst the highest of the 8, but still a few shy of 230 (I think it's ~ 205). Athletic recruits are encouraged to apply SCEA and I think most, but not all, do.
    When people said 300is in total has included those 230 who got in at early around, right?
    The 300-ish includes the SCEA number, whatever that number is.

    Of course not. I just means that there wasn’t an available/registered alumni to interview you. Or there may of been a lot applicants in you area.
