Interview Help: Advice from last year
pacifica wrote:Had interview with KB today. Don't think I did too hot . Started with specific law school Qs related to my background, which I thought I did well on, but when it got to general questions like "proudest accomplishment," I probably sounded quite vague (and/or repetitive) to her because I was very hesitant about regurgitating my resume, so I went with general themes instead. She was super nice and very pleasant to talk to though. 14 minutes total, about half was her asking Qs, and half me asking Qs.
Best of luck to everyone awaiting! Hope I was helpful. Might be a loooong wait for me for a JS2/KB2 if I get one at all...

Questions I remember her asking:
"Tell me about your job."
"How have your experiences at that job informed your decision to go to law school?"
"What are you looking forward to at Harvard?"
"Is there a particular area of study you find most attractive?"
"What do you think your greatest challenge would be at Harvard?"
"What accomplishment are you most proud of?"
"What do you envision a successful career for yourself would look like?"
"Is there anything you were hoping I would ask? In other words, is there anything not in your app that you'd like us to know about you?"
"Do you have any questions for me?" (Asked her like 4 questions)
Interview lasted about 14:30.
I asked about:
0L Summer Research Assistant positions
The accessibility of the professors
How the clinics compare to those of other schools
How I would fit in given that I don't come from an "elite" undergrad
