No Harvard Interview yet...?

I applied Early Action, submitting my application October 19th. It’s currently November 30th, and I haven’t gotten a request to interview. Should I be worried?

    I received an interview notification two days after I applied from the President of my local Harvard Club. If you didn't get a notification for an interview, it probably just means there's not an available alumni or faculty member nearby to conduct the interview.

    Every source- including from the college themselves -says that not getting an interview will really have no effect on the rest of your application, so unless you were on the edge, I wouldn't worry about it. My guess is that if they really do need an interview an AO might want to do a Skype interview or something, but otherwise I wouldn't worry.

    Same here for me. I thought I would be decently completive being a URM with above average ECs. I also live like 45 min away from Harvard which freaks me out since I wouldn't think availability is a problem. I've heard that an acceptance is practically impossible without an interview, it it true?

    In the court document is says “it’s not a prerequisite for admission, but in practice, applicants are rarely admitted without one. Maybe ask someone someone more knowledgeable like @gibby, since I’m not expert.

    true they all say its not prerequisite but factually there may be .0001 chance of admitting without an interview
