University Interview, Cornell

I have been getting emails from fellow ReComers who always had the misconception that having to seat for interview for U.S. universities would reduce their chance.

In fact, in reality, it is definitely not true. It provides you with another opportunities to impress the university. This interview or called by other names for various top U.S. universities would have its alumni to take a look at you, and if you perform well, the alumni would be able to provide feedback to the universities about you.

Application is a win-win situation. And hence, it must be where the university would benefit having you in the university, as well as for you to benefit. it is not a one-way traffic.

So, do definitely try to attend the interview, and impress the university alumni, who can help to pitch for you. It allows you to highlight things that you can't really highlight using papers. It allows you to show the alumni unique stuff that you have, for instance your art work, design etc. It allows you to explain a unique situation that you are in etc.

All these would be possible in the interview and do definitely make full use of it.

After all, every little bit that you can work on to improve your chances of getting into a university should be making full use of.

For those who are applying for Cornell, definitely hope that you would make full use of the opportunities. Definitely look forward to more people applying to my alma mater, as well as more people getting admitted!

Cornell is a very diverse place, with 3,000 international students from 130 countries, more than 4,000 choices of courses each semester, more than 1,000 clubs/societies etc. It would be a paradise of choices.

Good Luck~!
