Here I come.
I'm getting interviewed for a foreign exchange program later this week. I'm sort of nervous about it. Searching online hasn't really come up with any specific questions that I may be asked. It'll be through YFU USA and the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Program. I'm all concerned over 'Were my essays long enough?' and 'Do I need insurance?' If they emailed asking for an interview that's a good sign, right? Anyway, if this works out it'll be almost as exciting as the day I received DOOM in the mail... Just sayin'.
Wish me luck.

Congrats, I hope you found the trip enjoyable.
How perceptive are they to disgruntled Americans wishing to emigrate to Germany? More specifically, with at least some kind of job lined up, an honest effort to learn the language, political views more in line with mainstream EU thought and opposed to insane mainstream US thought, respecting the local culture and residents, etc?
There's probably little chance that I'll ever manage to escape this unemployment ridden surveillance state hell-hole, but I am interested in looking into other westernized countries (perhaps outside of the anglosphere) once I've established myself more securely professionally and financially.
