Anybody Got Call From HARVARD?

Postby lawbull335 » Wed Feb 03, 2010 4:44 pm

Apparently I'm getting a phone call from someone at Harvard soon.

I'm freaking out because I have NO IDEA what I wrote in my application and will be completely incoherent. I am NOT GOOD at talking on the phone and will sound like an idiot. (Slight exaggeration, but still...)

Has anyone else gotten one of these? Or even the email warning?

there's a ton of information on this stuff if you search Harvard and interview.

but basically to be admitted you have to be interviewed on the phone first. The call is from the dean of admissions and he only calls those Harvard is actually interested in so it is a really good sign that you got one.

I had mine yesterday and it is fairly informal (but that didnt keep me from being nervous as hell). he asks why harvard, why law school and if you have any questions for him. it only lasts about 5 minutes.

I am terrible at talking on the phone too but I think it went ok and a lot of people have reported that they rambled and were very nervous and they still got in. so dont worry too much. good luck!

just had a quick look at your other threads, and it looks like you're trying to tell about 3 different stories at once. since this is obvious bullshit: why waste people's time? i don't really understand the motivation

Just to clarify the bullshit-factor here from the OP:

I plan to apply during the next cycle. So, here's my story. I hate letters of recommendation. Since high school (applying to college), LORs have been the bane of my existence. I'm an independent learner, and I don't suck up (at least as much as a lot of people seem to). I'm not saying that you need..."
