You HAVE TO be interviewed.  Even thoguh you are getting the job yourself.  
If you are not interviewed, you can't go.

We let you know if you were accepted within 7 days after the interview by 
regular postal letter.  This letter will also include detailed instructions 
for the payment.  If you don't receive this letter within 2 weeks after the 
interview, contact us, it probably got lost in the mail.

or international money order.  You will get more detailed instructions for 
the payment with the letter announcing your acceptance to the program.

you the IAP-66 form and instructions how to proceed when applying for your 
visa.  You will receive detailed instructions what to do with this form.  The 
U.S. Embassy currently charges $45.00 for visa application.

6)  Enjoy your summer in America!
We will all meet at the pre-departure orientation.  Everybody must attend 
this orientation, it's the law.  Aside from this being a low students agree 
that they always receive extremely valuable information there.  If you 
purchased our flight ticket, you will receive it at this orientation.
