<p>"I have scheduled an interview, I will be having an interview, I do not want an interview. "</p>
<p>I have no clue why they give you the "I do not want an interview" option unless this year they changed the procedures about interviews.</p>
<p>I can't imagine either why any applicant wouldn't want an interview.
As for the other questions, perhaps Harvard is trying to track whether it needs to nudge the Schools Committee members into scheduling applicants for interviews.</p>
<p>I am not the head of my local schools committee. However, I do know that Harvard, not students, contact our committee head, and sends basic info (address, name, h.s., phone number e-mail) to the local committee head, who forwards the info to the alumnus who'll interview the student. The alum then calls the student to schedule the interview.</p>
