Hi! Now that Northwestern has sent out all its final acceptances and rejections, I am curious- had you taken the optional video interview?
I was rejected from Northwestern even though accepted from all higher ranked programs that I had applied to, which makes me think the video interview counted against me. I was uncomfortable talking to a camera without a person behind it, the camera quality was bad, and I messed it up.
Anyone who looks up this thread next year, my advice would be not to take the optional video interview.
