<p>Just curious, how much weight do they hold?</p>

<p>Im not sure, but I think they can do much more to hurt you than help you. I good interview wont get you in if you dont have the stats, but a bad interview can keep you out.</p>

<p>yeah i've heard that they use the interviews to exclude people sometimes not to include people...</p>

<p>I agree with the previous posters, sort of. If you and your interviewer really hit it off, they can "go to bat for you" and really push your admission. If you're someone who's qualified, but maybe on the bubble, this could really help.</p>
