    My DS has his MOC interview this afternoon and he has ready to bring
    a more recent copy of his HS Resume along with a copy of his 6 weeks grades
    and an AP Award he was given. Is there anything he should bring other than
    a well groomed and presentable young man who would like to receive
    MOC Nomination. Items such as a writing table and pen.

    NavyMom,

    Both DS and DD went to MOC interviews with all of the above plus extra copies of nomination essays and recommendation letters; all tucked away in nice portfolio with a pad and pen.

    Needed? Nope.

    But remember the classic interview phrase "everything speaks". Does he really want to miss any opportunity (no matter how small) to distinguish himself as the most prepared and motivated candidate?

    If your DS kept a copy of his application, he should review any essays he wrote.

    I served my MOC's nomination panel. I read candidate essays and usually ask the candidate to explain or expand what they wrote. Many candidate don't remember what they wrote.

    MedB and MemberLG thank you for your response. DS had his MOC
    interview yesterday afternoon (was only 20 mins by design...DS said
    it was a revolving door with the candidates) and he felt really good about
    it. He carried a copy of updated material and a pocket size writing pad
    and pen and pulled it out and wrote down something that the Board wanted
    him to take further action on. He said later that he was glad that he had the
    pen and pad...always go prepared.
