What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Although the students are very friendly and easy to talk to, the same cannot be said about the other interviewees. The entering class is subdivided into 4 societies which become psuedo fraternities, although these groups do not dileneate the student body. They participate in olympics, pranks, and various other fun activities, and the students all seem to love it. " -Posted 12/26/2004 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Everyone at Harvard loves it there. There is enourmous potential to make the most of your 4 or 5 years there; so much so that you really do need an idea of what it is you want to do with your time. Once you know, though, the doors fly open. My first interviewer was extremely friendly and we spent most of the 50 minutes making pleasant conversation with plenty of laughs. My second interviewer was equally friendly and nice to speak with, but he had a much more directed approach with specific questions about my future, my interests, my research etc. " -Posted 12/26/2004 | Report Response
