What impressed you negatively?

"The school, the personnel, the interviewers. This was by far the worst interview I had ( and I have had quite a few). The whole process was cursory and I had the feeling that it was a waste of my day. Every other school treated me like I was a human being/a real person, at Harvard it seemed like they felt that they were doing you a favor. My second interviewer was horrible, he asked me what my plans were for in the next 25 years and when I told him (mind you I said that I hoped...) he basically called me a liar and said that I could not do this. If this is not a dream killer I don't know what is. In my essay I talked about a very close family member being critically ill, at every other school they at least asked how he was doing, not at Harvard. My overall feeling was that the school has no personality, if you are going there for the name then fine, if you want somewhere that you are valued and treated as a person then forget it" -Posted 02/09/2005 | Report Response
