Good luck anyhow! I'm excited to see new Malaysian freshmen coming in.
caramel_nut, Dr. Christopher has been doing interview. In fact, for past years, Suresh Thiru (COO of JobStreet.com), Kay Yip (co-founder and Director of JobStreet.com) have been conducting interview for MIT too.
On the credentials of interviewers for various US universities in Malaysia, some of the credentials include:-
a) Former Deputy Minister
b) Former ISA
c) VP of a Government-Linked Companies
d) Director of an Investment Bank
e) General Manager of a 5-star Hotel
f) Founder of Companies
g) CEO/COO/MD etc of Companies
h) Former Speech Writer of Prime Minister
i) Former Special Officer of Ministers
j) Drafter of Malaysia-USA Free Trade Agreement
k) Drafter of Malaysia Budget
l) Former staff of Hong Kong Security Commissioner
m) Former intern at NASA
n) working at Silicon Valley, Wall Street etc
Those are some of the titles of interviewers in Malaysia for US Universities. But they are all very nice people, and when they do this, they are wearing the cap of their university alumni.
