Something like this should be working:

<?php
$interests = array();

if (!empty($_POST['interests'])) {
    $interests = $_POST['interests'];
}

if ($interests) {
    echo 'Interests:<br>';
    foreach ($interests as $i => $interest) {
        echo 'Interest: ' . $interest . '<br>';
    }
} else {
    echo 'No interests submitted.<br>';
}

?>

Your code shouldn't be giving any errors for as far as I can see. Only thing that could happen is that a notice is triggered because you aren't checking if $_POST['interests'] actually contains a value before using it.

I ran the same code locally and it's working (the code I submitted as an example, that is). So if that's not working for you we may have bigger problems at work here :p.
