Interview On Long-term Exchange. What To Expect?

Thu May 10, 2007 3:19 am


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.

Quoting NoUFO (Thread starter):

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.
