Hey guys !

 

Happy to finally see a thread on Harvard MDE on Grad Cafe. I had a chance to interact with a current student who was called for an interview last year. 

I was told that MDE interviews a few candidates to just get some clarifications. In the final list of admitted students there, a people who have directly been admitted without an interview and there are also people admitted after an interview. Like you guys have already discussed, not getting an interview in no way means you won't be on the admitted list.

Cheers

@BaeHH and @designtown944 Good luck with your interviews. Would be happy to know how they have gone and what is it that the ad-com is looking to know through these interviews.

I got an interview request yesterday and it is on coming weekend.

As @pensivefont said, it is not required and I believe it doesn't mean much.. so no worries.

 

But...I would like to know if anybody else got the request too..

if did, who are the interviewer? are you an international student? designer?

@BaeHH Good luck! Hope it goes well. 

Wondering why they have interviews if those aren’t required. Has anyone been accepted in the previous years without an interview?

I do believe that is the case. Just because you didn't get an interview doesn't mean you won't get accepted.

@designtown944 thank you ?! I applied Mdes also, MIT media lab,  and CMU Miips. I haven't got any email from them. 

how about you ?? 

@Raphaellin hmmm... me too.... I am designer working in different country although i have US undergraduate degree. 

I am starting to think that reasons for the interview are to see our sufficient eng. skill and how can we collaborate with other departments?

@BaeHH: This year, only applied to MDE. If that doesn’t work out will probably apply to more next year. Interview process is interesting to say the least given it’s technically not required. Hope it goes well for you guys!

I got a chance to connect with a previous applicant. She told me the interview was pretty chill and they just wanted to know more about our background. No intense questions or technical questions were asked.
