For example, this from Yale: https://asc.yale.edu/samplereports
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:
Update on interviewing for Yale. I met w/my area alum coordinator recently. Due to the # of apps, indivdual regional coordinators are submitting a "high priority" list and a "low priority" list to the directors in late January. Obviously, the high priority people are definitely under consideration and Yale would like more info. Don't know if the Low people are definite rejects on early read or not....
Thus the landscape changes due to the overwhelming # of apps vs interviewers.
an alum (not in the adcom) deems the applicant as High/Low priority?
surely they shouldnt matter in the application process?
I'm speculating here.
