    How much are you in contact with your ALO? My husband is an '86 grad and during the application process his ALO was in constant contact. We are not hearing from our son's much and wonder if this is the norm.

    Obviously, each situation is unique. You could have an ALO that is retired military; full time job; 15 applicants; and each of them is always calling and/or has issues that need to be addressed. Therefor, the ALO is relying on the applicant to be a bit more proactive with questions/concerns. Or, maybe you have an ALO that is still active duty or doesn't have as much of a demanding job with time, and they are able to contact their applicants more often. My son's ALO a couple of years ago only had 5 applicants that year. 2 of them got appointments. One year, she had 12 applicants scattered all over the place. One year she had 3 applicants and none of them had a chance in hell. and everyone knew it. So it all depends on the situation. mike.....
