I have a Harvard Interview tomorrow! [:)] I'm really excited & nervous, what should I do to prepare?

For example:

What should I wear?

Make-up or no?

What to bring? or what do I NEED to bring?
(like: paper, pen or pencil, notebook, application copy, ID, a little card or gift for the interviewer, the letter they sent me....etc)

What kind of quesion do they ask?

Do I need do some research about Harvard University?

Do I need to know much about the Politics? (since everyone said their interviewer asked them political questions)?

What kind of question do I have to ask him?

Should I be serious or friendly?

How important is the interview?

and, please list the Do's and Dont's during a interview....

Thank U SO much!!!!!!!
[:)]

If you want, bring a resume. Other than that, be prepared with some questions about Harvard, and make sure you know of reasons for:

Why you want to go there
What you have to offer Harvard
Why you're interested in what you're interested in
What your academic/career goals are
Etc.

Show harvard that you're a real person, not just someone who gets good grades but has no personality.

In short, just be yourself on your best day.
