Is it proper to "ask" for an interview if you know you are on hold for one?
A better approach would be to send a sincere letter of interest discussing why you would be a good fit for the school.
thanks! that sounds like a better approach. i'll try that and see what happens...
You've got nothing to lose, just make sure you do it right. Be polite and thoughtful, and make an argument as to why you should be given one.
I wrote a Letter of Interest two days ago, requesting the opportunity to interview, at my first-choice (of remaining schools. )
I'll keep this thread updated as to whether anything happens!
I think it depends on the circumstance. If you are OOS and are flying in to interview somewhere close by, you could call or email them saying you will be in town on such and such date and if possible would like to interview. I did that with Baylor and it worked (note: I did have an interview at another Texas school, I wasn't making things up just to get an interview). Unfortunately, I don't know if this will work at this point in the process since things are winding down.
Did you talk to the admissions office or the dean or someone else? I talked to the admissions office at Drexel, and I was given the e-mail address of the lady who does interview scheduling. She never wrote back, so I wrote an e-mail to the admissions office, and someone responded saying that if I get an interview, I can try to schedule it during the same time as when I'm going to be in town for a different interview. It sounds like it didn't work for me, but we'll see I guess.
I sent an email to the admissions office and about two days later the interview invite came by email. I was shocked that it worked. It did not, however, work for UT Southwestern.
