Got a Harvard Interview? YAY!
Take a deep breath.
The Harvard interview is special. Conducted by a highly trained admissions staff member who has read your entire application and done some addition research on you, the Harvard interview contains 95% point-blank questions: Pointed questions probing deeper on every last detail of what you wrote in your applications and beyond. These questions about you, your story, and your ambitions demand a simple and direct answer. After all, with 100% of classes first year leveraging the case method, they want to make sure you know how to listen, answer a question, make a concise point, and engender confidence in who you are.
The Harvard interview is nothing to be scared of. In fact, if you got the interview invite, you’re probably already ready for the conversation! Don’t let the lists of questions posted on forums scare you. Out of context, those questions might seem impossible. But that’s because they’re not questions the AdCom would ever ask YOU!! Your questions should be easy to answer because they’re all about you!
But if you want help ferreting out the questions the AdCom will ask you based on your unique application and practicing any tricky ones to make sure you’re ready for all the curve balls, we’ve got you covered. We’ll dig through your application and generate a question list we think will match the AdCom’s and then help you construct your best answers so you can be prepared for almost anything.
The Harvard Interview Prep package includes strategic guidance for and review of your “Last Word” essay. Choose the Harvard Package if you want to work on your Harvard interview with us.
We’ll survey your application to the school we are working on together to uncover key talking points, likely questions, and weaknesses to address
In this 15-minute call, your Coach will share their insights on their review of your application, suggest high priority questions for the school you‘re working on and get you set up to complete your interview training as efficiently as possible.
We’re not just lobbing questions at you in a fake interview. Before you even go into your mock interview, you’re going to learn how to answer all four major question types covered in 95% of MBA Interviews:
- The Walk Me Through: Walk me through your resume or Tell me about yourself.
- Future Questions: What are your goals, why do you want an MBA, and why our schools?
- Behavioral Questions: Like tell me about a time you led a team
- Point-Blank Questions: What’s your biggest weakness? Where do you get your news? And many, many more
Through the Interview Hero training program, you’ll learned our innovative tried and true frameworks to approach these questions and construct YOUR ideal answers as you complete the program BEFORE you do practice with your Instructor.
In this in-depth training call, you will practice with actual past questions from your target school with your Coach and get detailed feedback on each one as you go. Your Coach will also recommend next steps to finish preparation between your call and your interview.

What are people saying?
Louise was instrumental in helping me grow my writing, storytelling, and interviewing skills to allow me to bring my best, fully authentic self to this process. She skillfully pulled out my life experiences and helped me transform them into genuine, inspiring stories. I was able to not only get interviews at every school I applied to, but I got admits to 6/7 schools
Class of 2023 Admit
I applied to 4 schools and got interview calls from 3. Got admitted to 2, including HBS. Charli coached me through the interviews – worked on aspects I didn’t even consider important like body language, my speed of talking, etc. This is something that helped me even beyond the MBA applications and changed the way I speak and interact with clients/teams at work.
Class of 2022 Admit
We prepped for my interviews at HBS and GSB, and Charli was my biggest cheerleader throughout. It was amazing how many of the questions she asked me during our mock interviews showed up in the actual interview, which goes to show how much of an expert she really is — work with Charli!

We’re happy to report that these problems very seldom arise. Nonetheless, our world-class customer success team is standing by, and is committed to resolving any issues that come our way. Just contact [email protected] if you have any problems.
After you book a session, your Coach will confirm the booking and be connected to you via email within two business days (keep an eye on spam). Most coaches reply the same day. If you haven’t heard from your coach within two days of signing up, just contact [email protected].
We adhere strictly to a two-business day turnaround schedule. If you work quickly and turn drafts in consistently, you’ll be finished with your resume within 10 days. Essays can take a bit longer, but again, if you work quickly, you can complete them within 2 weeks. Please keep the holidays in mind: we take the days around Christmas and New Year’s off, and these do not count as business days in the two-business-day turnaround, so please get started ASAP.
You have 24 hours after your kickoff call (but before any more work is completed) to either request a full refund or request a different Coach. If you request a different Coach, we will pair you with the coach you request (or assign you a new one as soon as possible).
Once the work has begun, we cannot issue a refund. However, we strongly recommend you express any questions, concerns, or comments to your Coach. In nearly all cases, your Coach will be able to help you find a resolution, as long as you communicate with them.
If you’d like to switch Coaches after your kickoff call, you may do so within 24 hours by emailing [email protected].
