What are your general comments?

"This was a fun and wonderful day! It was my 11th interview, but i thought maybe i'd be scared because it was harvard, but i ended up feeling very relaxed throughout the entire day since everyone was very welcoming and friendly. It was a New Pathway interview. Also, it was the only school that paid for your transportation back to the airport (they give you pre-paid taxi vouchers that you just hand to the taxi driver) The facilities are great, the dorm is very conveniently located and the trees in autumn were just beautiful!! I'm from california so I've yet to visit boston in the winter time, but I guess I'll adjust since I just found out that i was accepted!!!! I'm so happy!! I was waitlisted and accepted at some other schools, but my Harvard interviews went so well (better than at most other schools) so I was very grateful and excited to receive the good news."
