    My interviews for the senators for my state are this Saturday. Any advice on what to expect in terms of question types or anything else? I am from NJ and have senators Lautenberg and Menendez if that helps anyone.

    Hey quick,

    I posted the same question in a thread earlier on. I am from Connecticut but I'm sure all the Senators perform interviews in a similar manner.

    Members of the forum gave me really good advice. The key is to not be nervous. I was as nervous as all get out when I stepped into the interview but it was not nearly as intimidating as I thought it would be.

    Prepare to be asked why you want to attend USNA and what you want to pursue after you graduate. You have already answered these question countless times.

    Good luck!

    S just had his interview today for NJ. They had a few questions about govt. policy's and why if he had all A's on his report card was his GPA only a 3.78. He said they were really nice. Now all he has is Rush Holt's on the 20th!

    We were there today. My DD came out feeling good about the process. The whole situation was entertaining. Loved watching the people. Candidates always came out looking much more relaxed then when they went in. The interviewers really seemed to want to be there and helped the kids to relax. Much appreciated. :)

    Don't let the smiles fool you. This is politics, working to enable participation on both sides, and keep 'em all happy. The ones that make you feel good are usually the ones that have the toughest outcomes. Notably the Senatorial interviews in competitve states. Good luck to one and all. If you've done your best, that's precisely all you can do. May it be enough.

    Gee, way to be supportive. LOL Actually, considering it was Senatorial, we told my DD to go into it as if it were just a "practice" interview for the Rep interview. She feels good about herself and confident. I don't think that's so bad. What's meant to be will be. :wiggle:

    Good for you, KMC. You have the right attitude for all this. Why NOT keep smiling after your daughter completes a difficult task and feels good about her performance?

    It's not as if cynicism will produce a better outcome.
