I agree. The best thing to do would be to stop worrying about Harvard and just worry about selecting a good list of schools you would like and to make sure it is not top heavy. If you start making it top heavy, you could end up being one of those people who make the thread 36+ mcat and no interviews in December because you thought you can ride a test score all the way.
If you went to a top 25 undergrad and obtain a 36+ MCAT, you do have a chance. Otherwise, it could happen, but it's still a lottery between hundreds of others like you.
God, stop asking this so much. You've been answered. You'll find out sooner or later. If we say no, will you stop trying as hard? Will it stop you from applying? Jesus, by the looks of it, you'll blow that interview with your needy/irrational attitude.Would you think a 36+ interview could give me a chance of an interview at Harvard?
