Yeah, I was.
I wasn't, nor was I asked "why Harvard" but I think that's because I already mentioned what program and prof I wanted to work with in my prior, "what type of law" question. I heard her say "great" and write something when I said it and then it was over.
Soj, did you get something specific or just the general "Why Harvard?"
For those getting nervous, it is very brief. Unless you can't answer why law in a coherent way or articulate some reason for going to Harvard, you're going to be fine. She even said in mine something to the effect of "What type of law do you think you might be interested in? It doesn't need to be anything terribly specific and its ok if you're not sure." I really don't see how the interview can change your chances too much one way or the other, based on both brevity and generality. I stumbled on and thought mine was awful, and I know of at least one other TLSer who got a KB2 that had the same feeling (we had a discussion about how badly we miffed up). So relax, be as clear and honest as possible and then settle in for the wait. Sdwhodat had a 4 minute conversation. All with the same result. Even if you don't get a KB2, I have a feeling it will have far more to do with what you've already submitted than with what you say in the interview (barring saying something stupid or being plain weird or what not).
