yeah it was....is this normal???

Dear XXXX,

Thanks for applying to Harvard Law School!

I just read your file and would like to set up a phone interview with you. Our interviews are relatively informal - you and I will have a short conversation about what you've been working on recently and discuss why law school, and Harvard specifically, is the right choice for you.

I'll plan on giving you a call between 11:00 AM and 12:00 PM EST on Tuesday, 11/17/2009. I'll use the number you listed with your present mailing address on your application. If this number won't work or if the time is completely unworkable for you, please reply to this e-mail and we'll reach out to coordinate.

I look forward to speaking with you!

Best,
Josh

Why else would they need to set a one hour time frame if not to get the spysat right over your state?

You'd pass over Yale because of the location? Its only three years and its not THAT bad...

Dont get me wrong, I'd certainly pick H over Y as well, but I have specific reasons for that.

I really dislike New Haven that much.

There are other reasons why I picked the places I applied to, location just happened to be a big factor for me in regards to Yale.

Guys, no nonsense, please...

I PMed a few people I've found, but they don't seem to want to update this thread, so I'll be probably updating some stats on weekend myself, so we can have a condensed version of the Harvard 2010.

I got an interview too. Does anyone know what this means? How many interviews are granted v. those who apply? What are your chances if you get an interview?
