Summary of Application Experience
Wasn't planning on submitting one of these, but the site was helpful for me so I thought I'd give back.
I applied early, and I think that helped me to get a handful of interviews before the new year. The interviews I have been to so far have been very stress-free...although some were more lively than others. I was definitely about to fall asleep during my WashU interview. I have only had one interview since Dec. and that was at stanford.
I waited and waited to send my Harvard app thinking I would eventually write the essay for hst, but I ended up not applying to hst...so my application for new pathway was later than I would have hoped. I think for a borderline Harvard candidate, applying EARLY is a must!
That's all for now...if you have any questions, post 'em up on my profile and i'll be sure to answer.
