Which T-14 Schools Have Interviews?

I've been searching for hours but haven't been able to find a useful or remotely comprehensive list. It seems like Northwestern and Georgetown do in-person interviews, and Harvard, Columbia, and UChicago do videoconference interviews. Does anyone else know about the other schools? I mainly ask because I'm debating whether I should even apply to the schools that require in-person interviews, as I will be out of the country next winter/spring and wouldn't be able to fly back without the school actually subsidizing my travel.

Thanks in advance for any useful info!

EDIT: Probably easier to organize by school and update as we get info.

Harvard: Video interview
Yale: No interview
Stanford: No interview
Columbia: Video interview
Chicago: Video interview
Penn: ?? (their website says their admissions committee occasionally asks to interview candidates, but it seems uncommon)
NYU: No interview
Berkeley: No interview
Michigan: No interview
Virginia: Interview (phone? video? in-person?)
Northwestern: In-person interview
Georgetown: In-person group interview
Duke: ??
Cornell: ??

    Yale: No
    Michigan, VA, Duke: yes (at least I did)
    Cornell: Technically yes, but it's an online interview where you give them a combo of recorded video responses and short written essays. This was rather annoying since if the internet crapped out, you'd have to start the whole thing again.

    Georgetown is T-15 now:) I think it doesn't have interview.

    I did not have one from Michigan and got in. Had one from UVA though - all admitted students have to have an interview. Of course, plenty of people who are not admitted get interviewed, as well.

    As far as Gtown is concerned, the dean showed interviewee some random applicants' applications(resume/essay) and asked if you would accept/reject based on the info.; then asked the reasoning for the decision.

    If you gogole TLS with interview keywords, you can probably find more real interview questions from T14 applicants past cycles.

    Hope that helps.

    Northwestern interviews but you have an option between in-person on-campus, in-person in a different area, or you can also do a video interview. Fyi. I believe the deadline has passed to request an in-person interview in your own area though. But video interviews are always accepted.
