Harvard Interview in Malaysia

getmeintoharvardgetmeintoharvard Registered User Posts: 3 New Member
Has anyone from Malaysia gotten an interview from Harvard for its class of 2023? I'm a Malaysian student who applied RD, and I've heard nothing about Malaysians getting into Harvard this year, in particular.

    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

    As you live in Malaysia, you (or anyone else from Malaysia) should NOT expect to receive an interview.

    Don't know if it applies to other countries, but according to the head interviewer, Harvard shortlists its candidates for Malaysia. The word 'adversely' is so misleading omg.
