    Ive just been asked for an interview for USCGA. Does this have any impact, meaning, or bearing on my application? Thanks.

    DS also just received an email telling him they are recommending him for an interview and that someone will be contacting him soon. We were wondering the same thing. Is this a good sign or not?

    An interview is always a good thing (unless you screw up the interview). It means you’re in the running. The alternative is they could have not offered you an interview and just rejected you outright. Always take the opportunity to make your case in person.

    The class of 2023 will be the first class for which an interview is mandatory.

    Are your applications already complete? DS is done except for the PFA which he has scheduled for the end of the month.

    Well then the email makes a lot more sense then. So does that mean if you are not recommended for an interview you are not in the running?

    DS is done, but his PFE administrator has not uploaded his results yet.

    I don't know, but I would imagine they extend the offer of an interview to everybody who applies. I would imagine that it is perhaps like the Naval Academy, where they wait for a certain level of completion before coordinating an interview. Again, this is purely speculation on my part.

    ekb1398 is correct. Interviews are mandatory this year. In the past they were always an option.

    DS received a second email today about an interview. It read almost the same as the first but indicated that his file has been at least initially reviewed. Still told him he would be contacted so he waits :)
