How did you prepare for the interview?

"Standard preparation (amcas, hms webpage, read over my papers, rest, breakfast)" -Posted 01/11/2008 | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Unlike most others, I found the interview experience here very endearing, even the breakfast bars (which I didn't eat). All the people, including the admissions staff, were very friendly, and all were very down to earth. For sure, no one tried to wow us, but that is what I truly liked about HMS. It is Harvard and I already know they are the best; why do people feel that they need to be dazzled by the school on the interview day? The school already wows me with their amazing medical discoveries. The down to earth nature of individuals here is a trait that I always liked about Harvard people in general." -Posted 01/11/2008 | Report Response

"I feel that there is so much more about Harvard that I didn't know and that I'm sure I don't know even after the interview day. I say this because the resources and facilities at this school are simply outstanding." -Posted 01/11/2008 | Report Response
