If everyone on the team is a veteran, what will you do to fit in?

"If everyone on the team is a veteran, what will you do to fit in and be a beneficial team member instead of a person who appears to be in training?"

This is actually an easy question.  Everyone should have a similar answer because there are only a few things that you can do.  I'm going to be giving an example of preparing and reading up on information more than usual.

Short Answers

"In this situation, I'll have to ramp up quickly and study notes from previous meetings before attending any.  I'll also do a lot of studying to catch up so I can participate in discussions instead of appearing to be in training."

"In the beginning, I'll put a lot of effort into catching up on any existing projects I join.  I believe studying a lot in the beginning to be aware of what is going on is very important."

"I'll study as much as I can to fit into a group of veterans.  I know I'll have many questions along the way, but listening carefully and putting pieces together will allow me to catch up quickly.  I know I'll be able to be an effective team player in a short time by following this method."

Long Answer

"Even if everyone is a veteran, I feel confident I can fit right in.  I would prepare as much as I can by reading existing material to catch up on the project.  I would plan for meetings by making a list of questions I have and finding the answers to these questions before the meeting.  I would also create a list of ideas through the documents I have read.  A fresh mind could help with creative solutions.  I know that I would be required to study a lot in the beginning, but I would be able to do so at home or by working late in the office."

This answer shows steps of becoming a team member that doesn't appear to be in training.  It is describing ways to limit training times in meetings, and includes that a new worker could benefit an existing team by making a list of ideas.
