Just an email from the admin team saying that an alumni will contact me for a further interview and that they have shared my CV and personal statement with them. I had my initial interview in one of the first few slots so probably why I'm on the earlier end of invites
 
Question what country are you applying from, also others who got second round interviews. Have any American students gotten interviews yet or just international?
I'm applying from the UK. 3 of my mates from US have received similar offers. Had my first round interview on 7 Feb
 
So it seems like a handful of people have gotten the second round invites. Does anyone know how many people still get in without this?

Hey,
I know people who have got in without this. I just talked to an alumni I knew and he said that there wasn’t suppose to be an alumni round this year. I’m not sure what to make from that but I believe they gave it to a few that they might need more info about but it’s just a guess. If they only give out 20 alumni interviews it doesn’t mean only 20 are getting in so I would message Wendell this week and still feel strong depending on how you did in the first interview.

Just had my alumni interview and it seems that alumni interviews are in fact happening this year. Perhaps the alumni that you were speaking too was mistakenly left out of the loop. A quick chat with successful applicants of the Princeton Mfin programme (from a small sample size of 8) showed that all of them had in fact had an alumni interview. I've yet to meet anyone who was admitted into the programme without an alumni interview. I am just an applicant like all of you guys so do take my word with a grain of salt. I am as unsure of the application process as all of you.

Thanks for this update.

What do you mean by you know people who got in without the 2nd round? How many do you know? And any idea why they got in without alumni interview?
