Jefferson Scholars Regional Interviews

Greetings Fellow Nominees,
As you are well aware, today, December 5th, was the last day to fill out your application. Now that we have all conquered this particular beast, let us all move onto the next phase of the competition ...
So previous nominees, I have a few questions...
1. Are all high school nominees allowed to attend the regional interview?
2. Does anyone know on average how many interviewers come to the regional competition in Memphis, TN?
3. I have heard rumors that they send one boy and one girl to finals. Is this true? Also, if so, are there usually more male or female applicants participating per regional competition?
4. What type of questions do they ask at the interview?
Thank you very much for your time. May the odds be ever in your favor.

    Unfortunately I can't answer any of those questions but I have one of my own. How do we find out what region we are in? My son is a nominee from Maryland and I've heard there are interviews in Baltimore as well as a DC-based region.

    I have no clue. I live in Memphis and my regional meeting thankfully is in Memphis. I would recommend contacting the Jefferson Foundation. Then again, the response I received stated that the foundation would contact us sometime in early January.

    From the letter: "The next step in our competition involves the thorough review of your nomination form by our regional selection committee in your area to determine who among those nominated will be invited for a personal interview."

    Based on this, I'd say not everyone is offered an interview, which you'd know in Jan/Feb. I'm from California by the way.

    I received the same information after they processed my nomination. They specified that "should you be invited for an interview" someone will be in touch about scheduling it, and that the interviews will take place in January and February.

    Do we know if anyone has been contacted yet?

    @preraphaelitefan I posted in a different thread that my son received a letter on 12/24 and has an interview scheduled the first week of January.

    Interesting. I just received a letter as well. However, I was told by the chair of the Memphis Regional Selection Committee that the interviews would take place on February 9th. I guess the date must vary by location. But yes, in response to previous inquiries, I was contacted on the 28th.
