Gatsby is pretty vague. He says that he's the son of wealthy Midwesterners and he was educated at Oxford. Gatsby goes on to say that he is from San Francisco (Not exactly Mid Western , so Nick is skeptical). Gatsby says he was also in the war and shows Nick a medal that says ,"Major Jay Gatsby." Nick believes him then.
