Ok her latest thing is totally making my head hurt. How can anyone possibly think that they have only to apply to get into a grad program?? Man oh man.
There are some universities/programs that don't require an interview for acceptance into graduate school. An interview might be recommended, but not required, or even not mentioned at all. This was the case for my Master's degree--I never set foot on campus until the first day of classes. I applied and sent in all the required paperwork, and a few months later received an acceptance letter.
But a wise applicant will know the requirements for every institution she is applying to, and keep them straight in her head, so as not to make embarrassing comments, or to reveal her own lapses in memory/judgement.
