Did you have to take a new 2x2 passport photo? I'm trying to print an existing photo but I can't find anywhere to print it that size unless I take a new one (walgreens, walmart, cvs). Any ideas?
I used an app on my phone to get the correct size and just took a photo at home, then printed it on photo paper. I didn’t actually retake a new passport picture. There are several apps that you can use for a “passport” picture

I just received an interview invite. Selected September 19th as my interview date. Just have to do the "pre interview" questions. Anybody know what this is like? I have read that it's essentially supplemental questions but in video format

Is there any penalty for choosing a later interview date? I already have plane tickets to visit my grandpa who is ill but my mom is going crazy about how important it is to do the first interview date possible so I can get in early

I saw the comment from FB that as long as your interview date is before november-ish, they are all equivalently the same since the first decision can be made only after the mid-December. But not sure if this is true tho

will you let me know what type of questions they ask?
You have the slightest chance of getting the same questions as someone else. It also wouldn’t be a wise decision for another person to give you the questions as they are competing with you for a spot. Just be yourself, it’s not something you can really prepare yourself for.

Does the initial wave of interview invites (yesterday) comprise of the majority of interview invites? I'm now feeling a little discouraged haha
When did you submit your application and did you receive an email yet confirming they received your supplemental?

Also, no, they will send out many other interviews possibly next month.
