Offered an interview? What?

<p>Hey guys,</p>

<p>I applied to Cornell's School of Arts and Sciences and apparently "interviews are not offered" (<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;). However, I just got a call today from an alumni, who wanted to set up a phone interview date. She said that the deadline for interviews is Feb. 15 so time is of the essence. I looked at my Cornell Application Status Web Page and it says that I'm applying to the School of Arts and Sciences. It's also the only school within Cornell that I applied to. So, when they say "interviews are not offered" do they mean it's not required?</p>


<p>I think the site is referring to official interviews, given by members of the office of admissions to evaluate you.</p>

<p>Alumni interviews are different because they are almost negligible in admissions and are given purely so you may learn more about the college you are applying to.</p>
