100+ Practice Interview Questions + Bonus Preparation Guide | The final step before you win a national fellowship is the interview. I have compiled a list of more than 100 questions from real past interviews and added some possible questions for this year's interview rounds.
Practice Interview & Advice (1-on-1) | Interviewing effectively is the single most important factor in winning a national fellowship after the application deadlines. You have one chance to perform well, and practicing is the only way to get ready. I'll mock interview you with my list of real questions (from past fellowship interview rounds), and you can answer them as you might during a real fellowship interview and/or we can discuss how to approach each type of question so you'll know what to expect. I'll share direct, honest feedback for how you can improve your interviewing at the end of our session.
All Resources: Winning Personal Statements (Schwarzman, Fulbright, Luce, Mitchell, etc.), Resume Templates, Application Checklist, Recommender/Recommendation Guide (coming soon), Interview Preparation Materials (100+ Real and Possible Questions List).
Make a Personal Website for Fellowship Applications (Use code NF20 for 20% off your first year) | Personal websites can help you show projects, writing, and other media to complement your core application materials. More applicants each year are launching sites, which can help most during the semi-finalist/finalist stages (to determine who to interview).

Email List: Advice Applicants | Whenever I have important information for you, I will organize it, and email you directly about it. This is probably the most important action you can take if you're planning to apply for these programs (especially if you don't need immediate help: <1 min to fill out form).
Personal Statement & Essay Review (48-hour turnaround) | Your essay is the most important element of your application package. I have helped hundreds of applicants improve their essays by analyzing content line-by-line, reviewing themes, critiquing unoriginal ideas, improving structure, etc. You will likely receive the most thorough feedback you have ever received on any personal statement, within 48-hours of submitting your statement to me.
