    I don't know if they are common:

    -examples of you leadership
    -why do you want to join the Military.
    -why wp.
    -how to you see the responsibility of leading others into battles.
    -what goes through your mind when you read about the ultimate sacrifice of other soldiers.

    The first question I was asked: why should the American people spend $400,000 on you?

    Interview

    There are 435 Members of Congress and 100 Senators. Each one delegates the interview process to someone else. There is no common question. There are 535 different takes on what to ask during the interview. A firm handshake, an ability to tell the interviewer about yourself, and an ability to set out why you and USMA are a good fit are probably as much prep as you an hope for. Time spent improving your GPA and your SAT/ACT scores and exercising your "leadership muscle" in high school is time better spent than time spent worrying about a short interview.

    I was asked something similar as Vampsoul's question during my ALO interview.
    My ALO made sure I knew the financial cost and asked me what I could offer the Academy.

    During my MALO, I was asked many of the same questions these guys have posted, questions like:

    Why choose West Point?
    What is a good leader to you?
    Do you know what is expected of you after the four years at West Point?

    If in your heart, you desire to go to USMA, you should have absolutely no problems with the interview.

    All of the above are great.

    In addition,

    Give an example of when you were in a leadership position and whatever you were in charge of succeeded.
    Give an example of when you were in a leadership position and whatever you were in charge of failed.

    Do you bomb a whole village for just one terrorist? two terrorists? how many terrorists does it take to justify the killing of innocent people?
