  2. Anyone claim the Harvard interview?
  3. Applying this year for Hispanic Studies. Happy to take a look at anyone's SOPs, especially in the Humanities, or do a swap!
  4. Not the OP, but I would be so thankful if I could take you up on that!

  8. Hey all! Future applicant here (Fall 19). I'm so happy someone has finally made a comp lit thread, and will be following it closely and rooting for you guys over the coming weeks! I was wondering if anyone would be up to chatting about the application process—SOP, POI contact, LORs, etc. I'm trying to learn as much about the process as possible before I start crafting my applications, and would really appreciate the opportunity to pick someone's brain on this topic Please let me know if I can DM you!
