Hi quick question - I just got an email from my BGO telling me that, as I am in Chicago at Christmas (I fly in 7 days woooooo!!! ) it would be "to my advantage" to conduct the interview face-to-face. Firstly, this is probably amazing! Especially seeing as she is the BGO for Americans abroad and therefore I will be one of few of the 217 candidates she has that'll get to have a face-to-face and not a phone interview. But she lives in Maine, and for her to travel to Chicago during the holidays for my BGO interview from all the way up there seems exaggerated to me. So should I offer to meet halfway or something? I have no idea where I'd stay though, and if my dad knew the reason I would expect him to lock me in my room. Ideas?
