Hello. I've just recently joined the forum and although I can see this question is asked a lot, I'm looking for feedback as to where my application stands. I'm a senior applying for an appointment to the class of 2018. I've interviewed with 1 senator's committee so far and thought it went well. I have two more interviews scheduled for December.
