Northwestern Interview

    Here's what seems to be the bottom line on interviews:

    1.In the grand scheme of admissions they don't mean too much.
    2.Does this mean that they can't help an applicant? NO! An interview can help an applicant convey a new side of themselves that they didn't in their application.
    3.Will a person without an interview have any disadvantage? No.
    4.Could it help to request an interview directly from the admissions office, to show interest? Yes, it would be about as relevant as touring the school I assume.

    As my final point:
    If you do have an interview, try to do a very good job with it. Your interviewer does write a report about you (in most cases), so give them something to write about.
