Ahh! Just got the email w. all the interview details:
What will happen at the NSLI-Y Interview
When you arrive at AFS-USA, you will be met by a volunteer or staff member. They will escort you to a waiting room. Here you will be asked to fill in a pre-interview questionnaire. There will be AFS “returnees” to talk to you about their experience when they were an exchange student on an AFS program. If your parent comes with you, this is a good opportunity for them to ask lots of questions of a student who has experience with international exchange.
You will be given a private one-on-one interview with an AFS volunteer. S/he will spend about 30 minutes asking you questions about who you are, your family, your interests and why you want to go on your exchange program. Remember, this is a competitive, merit based process of selection. You want to present yourself at your very best. Please dress appropriately for your interview.
It is not compulsory for your parent to come with you. to AFS-USA. However, if your parent/s do come with you, they will be invited into the interview for the last 10 minutes.
**GOOD LUCK EVERYONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
