Deferred from last cycle and thought I'd get things rolling given the dearth of school-specific threads right now. Will happily cede OP control to a deserving applicant as the cycle progresses.

Happy to answer any questions. Good luck, all!

Even just checking in to the thread I can feel the tingle of Harvard prestige. High hopes, but this is the land of no guarantees.
