The Interview - How did you organize your paperwork?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

Just curious as I couldn't find a suggested way to organize my paperwork for the interview...

I've seen some posts where the embassy staff made positive comments about how it was organized.

How did you guys do it?

Is there a "recommended way"?

Thanks

Steve
