Default Local 3 interview...elevator division

I am a female who scored 9th overall on the entrance exam. However, I know two people who scored high on the last exam two years ago, but they were not accepted into the program. I need all the advice I can get, and also I'd appreciate any information in regards to how people are scored and selected.

If the elevator local is like the elevator local in Houston you pretty much have to know someone to get in, regardless of test scores.

You should be ashamed of yourself. But I'll bet she looks good in those elevator shoes.

If a woman can't take that comment, they don't belong in the construction industry.

I have 2 suggestions for the interview.

1) keep creating new threads on the same subject till you get the answer you want or you get banned

2) don't answer like this if they ask you the dreaded map question
