I liked how she provided me with the specific sheet/notes she used to “score” my interview. It made it super helpful to know what are the important components she was using to analyze and not rely on my own notes/interpretation of what she told me.
Dr. Chen was an incredible advisor. She knew exactly how to get the best out of my application. In the end, I was accepted into Harvard and could not be happier!
