What impressed you negatively?

"My interview was pretty haphazard...one guy didn't show up at the appointed time, and wanted me to wait around. I suppose I should be grateful that I got two one on one interviews instead of a two on one interview, but the interveiw day was pretty long, so it was hard to stay peppy for an interview last thing." -Posted 02/20/2004 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There is a lot of free time. The other prospectives are both amazingly accomplished and also not so amazing that I thought I had no chance whatsoever...it was nice to meet the competition, I guess, and to stop freaking out about them." -Posted 02/20/2004 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Harvard is an amazing school, and the people work hard to make sure its shown in its best light.
