Princeton interview chances?

Hi guys, I applied to Princeton this year and I was wondering what percentage of applicants typically get interviews? I know it's not a guarantee, but I'd like to know if it's common or pretty rare.

Hi! It's important to keep in mind that interviews at Princeton, like most other selective colleges, are partially dependent on the availability of alumni interviewers in your area. That being said, Princeton aims to offer interviews to a majority of their applicants. However, the exact percentage of applicants who receive interviews can vary depending on the applicant pool each year and the number of available interviewers in different regions.

While an interview is not a guarantee, many applicants do receive the opportunity to interview, so it's not rare. If you are offered an interview, use it as a chance to share your experiences, interests, and aspirations with the interviewer, and ask any questions you have about the college. Just remember that while interviews can be helpful in showcasing your personality and experiences, they are not the sole deciding factor in admissions. Your essays, extracurricular activities, and recommendations play a more significant role in your application. Good luck with the admissions process!
