I am going to apply to Mudd (Regular Decision) but I only looked into the interview details just now and it seems like interview requests are over....
(I live on the East Coast so an on-campus interview isn't really viable for me.)
How badly will this impact my application? Though they technically aren't required the website makes interviews seem very important
"Interviews are not an application requirement, but are highly encouraged. A written record of the 20–30 minute conversation is added to your admission file and provides an opportunity for you to add a personal touch to your application."
I have a lot of other places I'm applying to so I won't be devastated to hear that it'll have a major impact on my standing, so whatever your honest opinion/knowledge is feel free to say it. Thanks
