The interview yesterday was a tough one, as I was expecting a 'fit' interview and instead they started it off very technical. Also, the firm has a reputation for being laid-back and friendly, and this was my most rigorous interview yet. I don't know how many times he said something like: "Now you just said x, but the industry standard is y, can you explain the difference?" or "So you're basing your conclusion on that evidence?" I spoke with someone who interviewed right after me, though, and she said she was given just as hard a time. Well, at least it wasn't just me.
On a more trivial note, the HBS community is now infected with an e-mail virus. I've received 10 garbage e-mails with sketchy attachments in the last hour. I may be a carrier, but VirusScan couldn't find anything.
