My 15-year-old Godchild from Hamburg plans on moving to the USA for a year, and after filling out a 60-page application form, consulting numerous physicians and threatening teachers to write a couple of favourable reviews (all within only 4 days), he's now down for an interview going to be held here in Berlin at the embassy.
Now I wonder what Lukas can expect besides the obvious questions on intentions and expectations and maybe history.
Any hints, tips and spoilers will be greatly appreciated.
If he makes it here he will be in America isn't that enough of a spoiler?
Seriously, I hope he comes here with a lot of money, has a great time, and leaves with just enough money to enjoy the flgiht home. Oh, and tips his waters and waitresses; unlike some other eurotrash member of this board.

If it is an embassy interview it is nothing to worry about - my 'interview' at the US embassy in London, for a student M1 visa was simple - hand in the forms to one window, confirm a few details; and then hang around and get asked a couple of supplementary questions at the second window - we spent more time waiting then actually doing anything!
If it is an interview with the company organising the exchange - as TedTAce says, it will most probably be asking him about his motivations and interests, and why he wishes to take part in the exchange.
