Do Ivy League universities interview all applicants?

As I'm working on my Ivy League applications, I'm wondering if I should expect interviews from all of these schools. Do they interview every applicant, or just a select few? Thank you for any insight!

Hello! It's great that you're preparing for the Ivy League application process. While interviews are an important component, it's crucial to understand that not all applicants are granted one. Interviews for Ivy League schools are typically conducted by alumni in your area and are dependent upon alumni interviewer availability.

Given the high volume of applications these schools receive and the limited number of volunteer alumni interviewers, it's not always feasible to interview every applicant. Generally, the process is meant to be informational and evaluative, aiming to benefit both the applicants and the schools. However, rest assured that not receiving an interview will not harm your application.

To best prepare, focus on building a strong application that showcases your potential contributions to the university community, your academic prowess, and your extracurricular involvement. Good luck on your journey in the college application process!
