I have applied to Reed College regular decision for Fall 2015. I'm a Florida resident, so affording travel back and forth to Reed would get pricey, however Reed is one of my top college choices. I applied to 8 schools and it's definitely one of the top 2.
The closest Reed College interview is next week in Atlanta, GA. That's a 5-6 hour drive for me. I'd definitely be up for doing it. However, Reed mentions that I can interview "with an alumni in your hometown, or by phone if all other options are unavailable."
How important is it to have a face-to-face interview with Reed admissions? I would imagine very important. But I'm looking for the opinions of others that have gone through this process.
