Hello everyone,

There are a couple of us who have interviews tomorrow at 1:30. I know Hamza and I are a lil nervous, I cant speak for the other couple... but I'm just wondering if there is any tips, or advice you have? Anything that you wish you would have known, before the interview, that you now know looking back? I know something Hamza is a lil nervous about is speaking English for the interview. He is very good in the English language IMO. He is just afraid he will misunderstand something, and make a mistake in an answer. Any way, any advice would be very much appreciated from both of us.

Though I did mine in Canada, I think general advice that I can offer to anyone is the following:

- eat before you go!

- wait for the officer to ask you their questions-they're usually nice. My interviewing guy basically said that they do this ALL of the time, so there's no need to be nervous-that, and no interruptions are always appreciated! (I guess nervous people talk alot... lol)

- bring all of your necessary paperwork ORGANIZED. I used one of those accordion folders with everything labeled, and it saved me alot of time and confusion to be able to find everything they asked for immediately (yay labels!).

- arrive early- get yourself parked/situated at the embassy early. The lineups can get long, so the earlier, the better.

That's all I can think of... So long as you're prepared, honest/have nothing to hide and love eachother-and yes, it shows!, you should be fine.

Good luck/Bonne chance!
