What are your general comments?

"When you arrive, there's no one to greet you - you just help yourself to your folder, granola bars, and water. Then, a student comes in to see if we have any questions, and two admissions people talk a bit about the school and the day. Then, you're off on your own - we all went our separate ways at that point. Most of us had one interview in the morning and one in the afternoon. Both were about an hour long and both very relaxed - no grilling. Lunch was kind of gross, since there was literally no selection, but the med students were really nice and really great about giving super-detailed answers to our questions. After lunch is the short tour (about 30 minutes) and then some downtime before our second interviews. I'd recommend going to the library if you have time - you can check your email there and they have a cool museum on the 5th floor. All in all, the day was very different from most others in that you were very much on your own, but I was still very impressed by the school (obviously, I mean it's Harvard!)." -Posted 12/13/2006 | Report Response
