The emails have gone out. Post here when you get the call.

I don't think there have been any today?

Wow -- it has begun. Congrats. How was the conversation otherwise? Pretty relaxed?

I've been waiting, but so far no call today. He's been known to call slightly past business hours before, so I'm still hoping. Otherwise, tomorrow is a brand new day. :-)

Just got off the phone with him. I thought everything went smoothly. First thing he asked me was "So what's taking up your time these days?" Then he asked me something about a minor activity on my resume, which kinda surprised me. Then he mentioned something about my academic transcript. I responded, and in his answer he segued into some things that make Harvard great. In his answer, he mentioned one of the things that I had been planning to ask about (opportunity to register for classes outside of the law school), so when he proceeded to ask if he had any questions I moved to my back-up question, which was about student housing. Then I said my only other question was how things are in Boston on the day after. Then he mentioned the Patriots, and I said my Steelers would beat them. Then he thanked me for my time. Total time: eight minutes. I give myself a B.

I got the email last Thursday.  The conversation was pretty informal.  He was very approachable and easy to talk to.  I was kind of nervous and probably spoke a little too quickly, which might explain why it only lasted about 6 minutes.  Best of luck to all you with calls on the way!  I'm sure I'll make you look good by comparison.

Hahaha. I felt like we're two guys, so I couldn't go wrong with sports banter. I think he liked it.

I would sell my firstborn for that email.  On that note, sounds like you all did great.  Good luck!
