International Student Interview

Hey guys, first time posting here.

I'm an international student from Singapore and I haven't received any email asking me to be interviewed for Northwestern. Normally, I wouldn't freak out but after contacting a friend who is studying there at the moment, she said she was interviewed (applied Regular Decision) when she applied 2 years ago. Is there anything I can do to set up an interview? The website says that applicants will be contacted if there's any availability and only ED applicants should schedule one themselves but at the same time I have the nagging feeling that only students who the university feels have a shot at getting in are interviewed, and that they choose not to interview some because they are gonna get rejected (at least that is the impression I get from Yale).

    So I don't know how things work at NU.. But since you mentioned Yale, well, I applied to Yale SCEA and got an interview and was deferred. But my friend (who goes to the same HS as me) didn't get one and he was accepted.

    So I suppose it really just depends on interviewer availability, more than anything. I'd say don't worry if you haven't gotten an interview yet.

    I have seen many who had an interview with HYPS didn't get acceptance last year, and I heard that for NU, the interviews do not really change the decision much unless they have a very specific reason. I think this is the reason why not so many people get an interview so you shouldn't really worry...
