Does anyone know if the nomination interviews are ever done via telephone? I'm guessing we would have to travel the 3 hr ride to Anchorage. The roads through the mountains are dangerous in the winter with high risk of avalanches that cover/block the only highway (there was one last week). Flights are very weather dependent especially in the winter On the other hand, there is so much lost in a telephone interview vs. in person. When my DD went to DVP in Feb, there was girl from Kodiak Island. Traveling to Anchorage for her would be extremely expensive. I also heard that there was a young man from Alaska for class of 2017 who never went for an interview, he was just nominated by MOC on the merit of his paper submission. Is this possible?
