What are your general comments?

"Unlike others here, I felt Harvard spent siginificant time trying to sell the school to us and repeatedly congratulated us on our selection as interviewees. Overall it has been my best interview experience thus far. I was able to discuss a wide array of my activities and only slipped up on one question. You get the impression that you'll really need to blow the competition out of the water just to get accepted, so if anything that's what makes the interview stressful." -Posted 10/27/2006 | Report Response
