  • harvard phone interview
  • Tuesday, October 28 2008 at 05:28 PM

hey elana, only harvard does phone interviews for applicants likely to be accepted...it's kind of a weird aspect of the process that no one really understands. the interview is basically a 5-10 minute conversation with toby stock about aspects of the application, such as work experience, extracurriculars, and such. from what i have heard (though i guess no one has really been able to verify this), no one gets in without getting through the phone call stage first. here is a link from the HLS website, where the phone interview is explained (last section of the page): https://www.law.harvard.edu/admissions/jd/apply/resources/ hope this helps! good luck! looks like we are pretty much numbers-twins :)

  • Optional Essay

Elana, Yes, I did submit an optional essay for Penn, but I didn't do the Why Penn one, actually. Another question really spoke to me, and I also submitted my diversity statement to them as that is another one of the "optional essays." With your numbers you'll need no tidings of luck from me, but good luck none the less!

thanks! ts1 call was fine. i honestly don't think he really even listens that closely. he didn't ask any follow up questions, just said, hmm, very good to almost everything i told him. i think its just a way to make sure you can actually talk about the stuff on your application, to make sure you weren't lying.

Thanks, I'm sure you'll be getting one soon too! I sounded like a rambling, nervous fool, but I'm really hoping that he's just making sure we're not lying or totally crazy. He sounded pretty bored, so I'm hoping that's more a good sign than a bad sign.

It certainly does complicate my decision-making process (in a good way, of course). Congrats to you too on your many wonderful options. I'm sure more are coming!

I got a weird email the day before my acceptance letter came to "welcome me again to Columbia" and instructed me to an admitted students site. Good luck!
