    Are interviews chosen from the stack of applicants? Do who applied and met the deadline and submissions all get interviews? How are you notified for an interview? Do candidates just review the applications and send out nominations without meeting candidates? I am from Iowa. Thank you

    Suggest you read the stickies on this forum. It's handled as many different ways as there are members of congress. It's all according to how the MOC wants to do it. There is really no correct answer to these questions.

    Every state is different. In NJ, my DS received an e-mail that represented both senators with his interview date and time. They were held back to back at the same location. As for his congressional, he received a phone call stating that interviews will be conducted the first week in Dec, and he would receive followup contact with date, time and location. Sorry to say, it just depends..

    Great thank you. I did try to search for this topic as well, not much on it for finding out when you will be notified or how to interview. Appreciate it!

    My USMA grad was called by the assistants of the different MOCs. One specifically told him a time to arrive by because the interviews were in 15 minute intervals---that was it----15 minutes. The other interviews lasted quite a while. For a Senator's interview, blocks of candidates arrived at one time and then were called separately.

    Make sure you prepare well in advance for your interviews. Get teachers, ROTC instructors, retired military, anyone with good interview/speaking skills to work with you. My grad was not in ROTC in high school but the instructors helped him practice. So did his guidance counselor.
