I am a Jr. and will be applying to SLS. If I make it in I hear there is an interview. What is the format of the interview? Who interviews you? Is it just "why do you want to go to USMA" or is it more than that? I was going to work on my interview skills after SLS (if I got in) because I thought then I would have more answers. The interview scares me the most. What if they ask me why I want to attend and I answer something stupid like, "because its a great engineering school and who wants to follow the typical path and I know it would be great for my future." That is my reason. but it doesn't sound good enough does it? I feel like I should have some kind of better reason, like "I want to help protect people."
