I am thinking I would like to go to Harvard, mostly because they have excellent programs in the sort of thing I like (mythology, philosophy.) In fact, they are one of the only schools I know of that had a Folklore and Mythology concentration. What do ya'll think my chances are, and would an EA app help? I know EA isn't as good as ED, but I would be showing clear interest.
