Unfortunately, you are somewhat underqualified. Try a community college

Have you already sent in your application? If not, try and play up being a page in your essay or just describe it well on your resume.

I'm not a page, just an intern

Are you a senior and interning? I really wanted to page last summer but something came up and then Senate only does juniors. Is there anything I could do this spring?
Re. your app, you obviously have an interest in government so make a big deal out of it. Be specific in describing your activities. I think you should tie your interest in gov. to being an intern....thats something that very few people do, so take advantage of having it on your record.

No, I just interned in my Congressman's field office in my hometown, not in Washington. In washington you have to do it during the school year, right?

Well, you can do it any month except August, but I am no longer a junior...I really wouldn't have wanted to intern for Strom Thurmond anyhow, he reminds me of the guy in Hannibal who was attacked in the previous movie (our other Senator doesn't participate).
