Thanks again for all your help guys! One last question: I know they asked you on the initial application what your plans are if you didnt get admitted into TFA, but do they also ask you again during your in-person interview? In other words, do they ask you if you have any other job lined up should you be rejected?
They actually did ask me this. My general rule in interviews is to always tell the truth and just be candid. My interviewer asked me whether I had any other plans besides TFA, and I told them about how I had already secured post-graduation options (a marketing job at Disney or the Peace Corps). I don't think it made any impact one way or another with my application. I ended up being admitted and joining Teach for America, where I am now in my 3rd year of teaching.
(Oh, and another thing--organization is important. However, it also happens to be one of my weakest characteristics. I was very candid with my interviewer about my organizational skills. I have never successfully used a day-planner and I am awful with keeping track of and doing paperwork.)
