Is this a good email to send to my interviewer?

<p>Hi! I was deferred from Harvard SCEA, and was wondering if this is an appropriate email to send to my interviewer. We had a good interview and she seemed to like me. </p>

<p>"Once again, thank you for interviewing me. Unfortunately, I was deferred in the Early Action round, and will not have a definite answer until late March. Is there anything you would recommend I do to improve my chances of admission?"</p>

<p>Honestly, I don't see the point. She doesn't have any magic "in" -- what advice is she going to give you that isn't generic/that you don't already know?</p>

<p>My D was deferred from Yale. She reached out to her interviewer and she was happy to hear from her. She rarely hears how the kids she interviews get on. She did have some good advice and some positive things to say to my D. My daughter really connected with this lady her and when she made her final college choice she emailed her to let her know. She lives locally and had seen my D in the local paper.</p>

<p>and no.............. she was not admitted to Yale, but she loves where she landed!</p>

<p>Was it an alumni interviewer, or an admissions staff member? </p>

<p>If it was an alumni interviewer, I wouldn't do it. I am an alumni interviewer myself and I would feel awkward if a student I had interviewed sent me an email like that.</p>

<p>If it was an admissions staff member, it would be OK to do it though.</p>

<p>I'm an alumni interviewer, and I just got an email like that from the ED applicant I interviewed who was deferred. I have absolutely no problem receiving an email like that, and even welcome it. I usually tell applicants that they can ask me questions like that if they are deferred or wait listed.</p>

<p>Sure, but what advice do you have for them that isn't the same kind of generic advice you'd give anyone who was deferred to a RD round?</p>

<p>Well, I emailed my alumni interviewer, and she replied that I should let her know if I have anything to add to my resume, and that she will send them to the admissions office and let them know that I am still very interested. </p>

<p>I could have an award later on, not sure. In terms of written work, which she mentions, I am not sure if it would be beneficial to send a longer version of my research abstract. Anything else wouldn't really be helpful. I am considering sending a rec letter from my math teacher (which I didn't send before) to help counteract a low SAT math score, but am not sure if that would be superfluous as well.</p>

<p>Would it be okay to send her something later in January, because I don't know what exactly I want to send right now?</p>

<p>You would do that anyway, directly to the admissions office. Why would you route that through an alumni interviewer?</p>

<p>The only time my D re-connected with her interviewer (after the thank you note) was to let him know that she got in and would be matriculating.</p>
