"Tell me about yourself."
"I wrote about a ethical problem i faced at work in one of my essays, my student interviewer asked me about it."
"My faculty interviewer asked me what made me to decide to leave Los Angeles for the Bay Area for undergrad (went to UC Berkeley)"
"The interviews are meant to be open file, but my faculty interviewer received my application right before the interview so it was semi-closed. My student interviewer had definitely reviewed my file before hand and had very specific and interesting personal questions, but they were all related to things I had written about or experiences I had."
"none, all were straight forward and conversational"
"this website, the harvard website etc."
"Everyone was super-friendly and laid back, this was my 11th interview so I could truly say that while it is fantastic and it IS Harvard, everyone was sweet and very welcoming, not intimidating at all."
"The tour guide was the only person i met there who wasn't very enthusiastic. they should have picked someone else to do the tour :)"
"When you fill out the taxi voucher that they give you, make sure to write in the final fare before you give it to the taxi driver. "
"This was a fun and wonderful day! It was my 11th interview, but i thought maybe i'd be scared because it was harvard, but i ended up feeling very relaxed throughout the entire day since everyone was very welcoming and friendly. It was a New Pathway interview. Also, it was the only school that paid for your transportation back to the airport (they give you pre-paid taxi vouchers that you just hand to the taxi driver) The facilities are great, the dorm is very conveniently located and the trees in autumn were just beautiful!! I'm from california so I've yet to visit boston in the winter time, but I guess I'll adjust since I just found out that i was accepted!!!! I'm so happy!! I was waitlisted and accepted at some other schools, but my Harvard interviews went so well (better than at most other schools) so I was very grateful and excited to receive the good news."
