I think she knows its unfair to ask "Will you attend if admitted" especially since its June and they are really messing up everyone's plans (and i mean everyone...if there is in fact movement..this will affect other lower ranked schools) but she has to get the answer indirectly no matter what...
The question i thought was iffy was "what school did u deposit at?' If someone was in at Stanford and really wanted to go to Harvard...this might mess him/her up. My friend thinks they asked the question to do a background check with other schools and make sure u can withdraw from that school and actually attend Harvard in the fall. i don't think they have time for that.
I know, this one threw me a bit. For me she was even like "i see you're deposited at columbia" and im like, um no, that was last year... this year I'm deposited at X" and she went oh i see and moved on real quick haha.
and that was the part of the interview i kept repeating later being like, i wish i'd used that opportunity to say more about how harvard really IS my first choice as is evidenced by the fact that im applying for the second time around.. blah blah. but hey. nothing i can do now.
but yea, i found that weird.
