Alumni Interview vs on campus interview [#permalink]
14 Dec 2007, 12:11
I need to schedule an interview with Cornell in the next couple weeks. I live in San Jose CA, and can do an alumni interview out here. They say that they weigh on campus and alumni interviews equally, how much should I believe this?
Do you think the admission staff will be more likely to admit me if I were to do an on campus interview?
Cornell seems to be a school thats put an emphasis on a visit. A lot of the schools outside the elite/ultra elite tend to because they want to see who is serious and who is using them for a safety school.
If you have the means and time I would say go to the campus unless you have already gone to the campus.
Yes, Cornell is very yield sensitive. Of course, if you have already visited, then it doesn't matter as much (especially if you emphasize it in your essays and your interview). If you have never visited, then DEFINITELY visit to show your interest.
For UCLA (which is also very yield sensitive), I visited twice and mentioned it in my essays/application. Then I emphasized it again at my interview (off-campus, alum) because I didn't have time to go down there again.
