Difficult Interview

Assistant Staff Judge Advocate Interview

Assistant Staff Judge Advocate
Manchester, TN

I applied through college or university and interviewed at US Air Force.

Interview Details – I interviewed with a Lieutenant Colonel at Arnold Air Force Base. The interview lasted roughly two hours; it was extremely in-depth. Most of my personal, academic, and work history was covered. I had to talk about every single low grade that I made in college and law school and explain why it was low. Very few stones remained unturned.

Interview Question – Even though I graduated from a top-50 law school with honors, my interviewer asked me why my "grades were so low." Apparently, honors is subpar for the Air Force.   Answer Question
