Given the time-costly nature of scheduling and conducting interviews, not all students are guaranteed an interview. In general, admissions officers only request interviews from potential candidates who demonstrate strong potential to be a good fit for the university.
However, some students may not receive an interview invitation despite having a good chance of being admitted. Oftentimes, colleges attempt to match students to interviewers who live in a similar time zone to the student. If the university has no interviewer present in the applicant’s time zone, the applicant may not receive an invitation due to the difficulty of having such an interview take place.
If you do not receive an invitation to interview, do not worry as there are many factors that go into the undergraduate admissions process. If you would like to share your situation with one of our seasoned admissions consultants for some advice, you may do so here.
