Admissions Interview: No - didn't have one.
Information Session: No - My trip was very rushed, and I couldn't get there in time to see one.
Campus Tour: Yes - It was nice, albeit not very interactive and pretty mundane. Just like any other campus tour, but very informative about Harvard's heritage.
Classroom Visit: Yes - My friend took me to see a classroom, or actually just to stand by the door cause the teacher was talking then, and the lady kicked us out! It was very rude. My Harvard friend was very embarassed.

Campus Visit Notes for Harvard University
I visited the east coast late September - early October 2006. I come from California, so weather is a HUGE deal for me. It was kind of rainy when I visited Harvard. Kind of drab.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
didn't stay near Harvard.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
I went to Au Bon Pain. Pretty cheap and good.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Parking was a huge fiasco. It was so hard to find, and was the reason I couldn't see the info session. It's expensive too - $20 for FOUR hours!
