What impressed you negatively?

"My second interviewer was pretty ditsy. Really nice, but seemed shallow. Our conversation was about restaurants... I'm just a little worried about what she'll have to say to the committee about me. Also, it's not really what I expecte from Harvard. (but in that aspect, I guess it was positive that there was a "normal" person interviewing." -Posted 11/20/2003 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviews are "open file", but often the interviewers have not had time to read the files before you get there, so they might not really be prepared to ask you much that's relevant to your app. My first interview was my favorite of anywhere I've been. She was intelligent and insightful and asked good questions and was fun to talk to." -Posted 11/20/2003 | Report Response
