So, I'm not terribly familiar with the whole USAO process, but from what i understand, USAO in general--and SDNY//NDCA/CDCA in particular--are supposed to be ridiculously competitive. And the civil division within these offices are, from what I understand, even harder. So I don't quite understand how I've already gotten interviews with each of the three offices (the only 3 USAOs I applied to) (and the civil divisions within each of them). I'm at HYS, but I don't have very much in terms of a resume: came straight from college (although I did have a considerable amount of leadership positions while there), no specialized background (i.e. not engineering or finance, etc.), do they just do a ton of these interviews? Or does getting an interview mean you have a good shot or what exactly? I guess I'm just confused because if theyre as competitive as people make them out to be, I'm sure there are a ton of people from HYS (+ CCN) who have much more interesting resumes than me, so I'm just

If anybody has any info that would be nice
