Does Northwestern interview transfer applicants?

Obviously the interview is a big part of Northwestern's regular admission process, but do they conduct interviews for transfer applicants?

How does the interview process work for transfers? I never applied for regular admission, so I have no clue.

I think for regular admissions, they have an alum working in the city nearest you interview you and send NU a report. I'd suppose they do the same for transfers.
