    I agree with @Bumalicious and @skieurope

    There's just one catch here regarding semantics for Interviews. While all other schools say 'at no disadvantage/no negative effect' for having no offer interview, Harvard says 'no adverse effect'. This might imply a slight difficulty/setback while evaluating the apps 'profile ranking'. I'm sure everyone her's familiar with Harvard's 6 point per aspect app eval system?

    What if an admissions officer could confidently determine an applicant's "personal qualities" ranking without the use of interview feedback?

    What if Aunt May were bitten by a radioactive spider? These are the kind of scenarios that have no set answer, but which inspire countless debates. You'll find out the answer to your question (or the result anyway) in 5 weeks.

    @mattm2019 They have to try their best. They are trained to make the best of what data they can possibly get their hands on regarding you (which is any material submitted by you). There is confidence due to years of experience, but quite some times, the AdCom makes the most plausible decision and then acts according to the results.

    I applied to UC Berkeley, UCLA, UCSD, UCI, UCSB, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, MIT, Columbia, Caltech, Cal Poly SLO, SDSU, Stanford, and USC.

    So far I’ve gotten rejected from Stanford, but I’ve been accepted to UCI (CHP), UCSB (Chancellors), and SDSU (Honors College)

    Waiting for the rest

    I applied to UCB, UCLA, UCSD, UCSB, UCD, Harvard, Columbia, Penn, UChicago, Vanderbilt, Northwestern, WashU, Emory, UVA, BU

    So far, I've been deferred from both Penn and UChicago, and accepted to UVA as an Echols scholar, UCSB (through the Chancellor's invite), and I guess(?) unofficially accepted to UCLA through the regents invitation

    Quick question: Do you guys think I have a lower chance of admission if someone else from my school was accepted EA? It's a fairly small Midwest high school. (130 class)

    No. There is no min/max/quota per HS.

    When is the last possible day I may receive an interview from Harvard? I am an international student, and have heard that they are selective about who gets an interview.

    @ThanosPrabhakar: As per Harvard's website; https://college.harvard.edu/admissions/application-process/what-we-look/interviews
    If you are located in one of these countries, you are in an area where we have a limited number of interviewers. If the Admissions Committee requires more information about you, you will be contacted by the Admissions Office. If you are not interviewed, it will not adversely affect your candidacy:

    Albania, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Bermuda, Botswana, Brazil, Bulgaria, Burundi, Cambodia, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Ghana, Guatemala, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Japan, Kenya, Korea, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, Malta, Marshall Islands, Mexico, Monaco, Morocco, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Poland, Peru, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Tanzania, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda, Ukraine, Venezuela, Vietnam, Zambia and Zimbabwe

    If you live in one of the above countries you should NOT expect to receive an interview.

    FWIW: The Financial Aid Committee must put together a FA package for those accepted students who requested financial aid -- and that takes about a week. As such, the Admissions Committee must complete their deliberations about a week before acceptances go out. So I imagine all interviews -- if a student were to receive one -- would need to be completed at least prior to acceptances being released.

    Idk @COnFusED4sur

    Due to the lawsuit, they mightve changed their eval policy/material policy and are being cryptic over email responses.

    You never know.
