Discus: Ivy League Schools: Harvard University: 2004 Archive: Interview? How do I ask for it?

I sent the common app w/ the supplement to Harvard.

I said I'll make an appointment, but since I live in Korea and because I'm a home schooler, I am worried.

Now I know it's a dumb question, but what should I do now? Help me out please, your input is greatly appreciated. :-)

After you apply, if an interview is possible, then you will be contacted anywhere from 2-4 weeks after your file is complete with all materials. Check the online status of your file if you dont know if Harvard has all materials. Just wait it out. "Don't call us, we'll call you" is the motto here.

Hyosobee: Since you are a nonBritish/Canadian international, you have to make an appointment with an interviewer. Check the booklet about this that Harvard sends international applicants and check this website: http://www.admissions.college.harvard.edu/prospective/applying/international/interviews/

US, British and Canadian applicants should be contacted by alumni interviewers by Feb. 1. If you aren't contacted, e-mail the admissions office and ask about obtaining an interview.

Dear Northstarmom, thank you for your consideration. However, Korea is NOT on the list of nations that have an alum association. I have already sent an e-mail message asking for advice to Harvard Univ. but I don't think I would be getting a reply shortly... maybe never hehehe.
Should I just make a call? Or should I wait for it? Please help me. Thank you.
