    DS recently had his BGO interview that was three hours long. It only tripled his motivation. How long does it take typically from the time your BGO uploads the interview information until it is marked as received on the CIS? A friend who applied last year said there was some kind of technical glitch they had in this area that set them back four weeks.
    Thank you.

    Based on my experience, the link is fairly quick. However, understand that not all BGOs write up their interviews immediately. So, it could be a few days or more (hopefully not too much more) before it is submitted. The important thing is that USNA gets it and BGOs are notified immediately if "upload" is successful.

    Just out of curiosity, was the BGO an academy grad?

    The interview was posted a couple days after the interview.

    I can't say enough About how TOTALY great my son's BGO was. We (mom and dad) only met with him the last 20 minutes , the first of the three hours was all on their own.

    my son was a nervous teen who also tends to be on the understated side. His BGO took the time to get the answers without the pressure. I heard one question was something like, "now I wasn't sure what I wanted to major in when I applied to the naval academy but I bet you've an idea?" my son than felt more comfortable telling him .

    He then would tell a "sea story" from his days at naval academy and then as a pilot and intersperse the hilarious stories with questions. For example he asked my son his favorite part of NASS, when my son answered "wet and sandy" he went on to tell funny navy seals stories. He had an interesting story of meeting Jacques Cousteau that lead into another question.

    What I especialy liked was the sincere explanation of the honor code. He gave the dont drink, dont speed, make good choices lecture.He also made my son promise that if he gets in he has to stick it out for a whole year and has to personly promise that he will learn to keep his sense of humor during plebe summer.

    Overall, yes he was a proud graduate from USNA and later became a naval aviator. He clearly loved his alma mater. I got the sense that he thinks everyone should get a chance and it would be great for all.

    Another interesting point is that my son's leader at NASS was hilarious and irreverent which made my non-loving fun crack a smile so much he loved it. He said his BGO officer was the same as his NASS leader but 40 years later. He now desperately wants to attend

    Unfortunatly BGO told ds though he looks very competitive , he has had kids with higher stats than my son's who did not get in.

    Son next week has interview at our house with some one called a field admissions councelor.

    Then we wait!!!!!

    Out of curiosity, where are you from? Your son's BGO sounds strangely like my Area Coordinator from last year.
