Interview --> Lol

<p>On MyMIT account there is already the number and the email of my interviewer. I don't know when to contact him, because I have read on the internet that he is going to be one of the canditates for the Nobel Prize for Literature. ( a group of people plus an important person sent a Nomination to the nobel prize foundation). </p>

<p>The Nobel Prize's results usually go out at the beginning of october..
(I am so excited, I am sure it is going to be one of the most interesting talk ever).</p>

<p>Should I contact him before october or later?</p>

<p>Ps: my interviewer is an native italian, in which language should he speak?</p>

<p>Contact him only after he got his Nobel Prize :)</p>

<p>Obviously you have to speak in Italian language :D</p>

<p>I don't think it matters when you contact him. Whether or not he has a Nobel Prize won't particularly affect his opinion of you and whether or not you'll fit in at MIT, and either way you'll be able to ask him about his experiences writing. Your interviewer will almost definitely be fluent in English.</p>

<p>Awesome that you got such an interviewer! I'm excited for you.</p>

<p>Contact your interviewer only after he got his Nobel Prize, otherwise he might not be in a good mood.</p>

<p>If you have problem in speaking Italian, keep Google Translate handy :D</p>

<p>All MIT interviews are conducted in English.</p>

<p>Really? My French teacher said that one of her former students did the interview in French.</p>

<p>^ I would never ask any of my language teachers again!</p>

<p>I don't have any problem in speaking italian. LOL
it would be weird if we spoke english, but that's fine I have never met him.</p>

<p>: )
I will wait for october..</p>

<p>


</p>

<p>Mikalye is an international EC, and is very familiar with the rules for international interviews.</p>

It's not impossible, though it would be a violation of the EC handbook. Though there are 2300 of us, and this wouldn't be the worst violation I've ever heard of. Really, the responsibility is on us to ensure that the student has adequate English. If I was interviewing a candidate who went to a public school in (say) Iowa, then I could quite happily speak Urdu at the interview, as I would have some comfort that the student could function in an academic environment where everyone spoke English. Transport that same student to Italy, and I cannot make the same assumptions.</p>

<p>The key thing to remember about ALUMNI interviewing is of course that we are all alumni. We all went to MIT; we all had to function in an English-language academic environment. I can assure you that whatever anyone's EC's native language might be, we all have at least adequate English, and that is one of the things that we are looking for.</p>

<p>Also I have just spent some minutes doing a little internet research, as I was curious about a potentially nobel-prize winning author as an EC, and I think that it might be a case of mistaken identity. There is a potentially nobel prize winning author who as far as I can work out attended the Catholic University of Milan where he studied law in 1939 (his studies were interrupted by WWII). As far as I can tell, he lives in Milano.</p>

<p>There is another person with the exact same name, who is Neapolitan. He studied electrical engineering at MIT many years later. If you are having your interview in Naples, then I think that it is a different EC. Sorry to disappoint. Have a great interview anyway.</p>

<p>Are int'l transfers offered any interviews ?</p>

<p>If its not possible then,
If I want to have one then how can I have one ?? :confused:</p>

<p>Sorry, it was my fault.
I didn't check where it took his degree. </p>

<p>LoL </p>

<p>Anyway it will be a great interview.</p>

<p>Sorry to revive the thread - I just wanted to confirm that it is indeed a case of mistaken identity. I was interviewed by the same gentleman a few years ago. He was an engineer, not a writer.</p>

<p>

<p>3500 actually (!!!)</p>

I can picture it now...
"Congratulations on your Nobel Prize!" "Nobel Prize!?!?!? WTH!?!?!?"
Great way to start an interview.
(It censors WTH if you use F instead of H)</p>
