I have had some issues with scheduling my interview with my ALO, and I was wondering what exactly I should do. Part of the issue is my fault, I will admit. I was not proactive enough and did not call my ALO soon enough, partially from a busy schedule, and partially from slacking on my part. Anyway, my ALO called me Friday night (the 11th) and left a message which I received Saturday afternoon. I called back immediately, and did not get a response. I called again Sunday around noon, and once again did not get a response, but left a message. She called me back that night around 8:00. After confirming that I was still interested in the Academy, she informed me of what I still need to complete, which I am well aware of, and I politely informed her of the status on my DoDMERB. Then things got a bit confusing. She told me that we have to complete my interview as soon as possible, because she has a deadline to meet for the Academy. (There's a deadline for an interview?) She then informed me that she had tried multiple times to contact me, and I had not responded. (I double-checked my email, so unless she left a phone message and it was deleted by my parents, I had had no previous contact with her). She re-emphasized that the interview needed to be completed ASAP: "I think we probably need to get this finished by....Monday." She was telling me this on Sunday night, and expecting me to drop everything immediately because she had some schedule of which I was uninformed? And if she had to meet this deadline, why did she not contact me before Friday evening? I politely informed her that I would be unavailable for an interview on Monday -- I had swim team practice immediately after school, and after that I had my calculus course at the local junior college. I told her that I would be available on Tuesday or Thursday, however. "Tuesday and Thursday are too late." (Am I missing something here?) She also told me that she NEEDED my resumé. She then said that she would have to contact the Academy to see if it was possible to submit the interview after the deadline (again, deadline??) and she would call me back. She asked what time she could contact me on Monday, I told her after 9:15. I get back from my calculus class Monday, no phone messages, and there are no calls later, either. Tuesday comes around, and there are still no phone calls. I call her, get no response, and leave a message. Wednesday, still no phone calls. I stay up extra late Wednesday night after my class to write and send my resumé. Thursday, no email response, no phone calls, so I call and leave a message again. Now, it's Friday night, and I have still not received anything from her since last Sunday. I spoke with the JROTC instructor at my school briefly about her, and he mentioned that some students have had a fairly easy time with her, and others have had difficulty getting in contact with her. I also spoke to two other classmates of mine who are applying. One said he had no difficulty at all. The other said today that she actually had difficulty contacting him. He told me she called him a few times, and when she called him on Tuesday, they scheduled their interview... for today. I feel as though I am missing out on some crucial bit of information. Why does she put effort into contacting another candidate (whose GPA and ACT scores are nearly identical to my own, and our ECs are similar in strength), yet she seems to ignore me completely? I understand that I am living right next to an AFB, so there are many AF Brats who are applying, and she probably has her hands full. However, I do not think it makes any sense that she would contact my classmates several times, when he made little effort to contact her, yet would not contact me when I have been making the effort the past week. And on top of it, she called him the same day that I called her back. Anyway, I'm frustrated and confused. My mom told me not to worry, because other students have had problems with her before, but that doesn't help. Does anyone have any advice?
