    Hi I received an email from a USNA admissions counselor who said he would like to meet with my family and me when he is in the area. Is this an interview? What has been your experience with this sort of visit?

    Thanks in advance!

    My son received many phone calls and a visit from a regional officer from the admissions office not a counselor. He wanted to make sure to we could be there as well so he scheduled the meeting around our schedule. He's visit was to give more information to my son who expressed leaning heavily towards West Point what Navy could offer him. It was a very pleasant and informative visit and it made us really respect the Naval Academy's admissions office due to this officer's professionalism. This visit was more of recruiting effort than an interview since he was already done with all the paper work including an interview with his BGO and had LOA in hand.

    Some of the Regional Directors do home visits. In some cases, they may be diversity admissions counselors. In some cases, the candidate may be from a historically underrepresented district or school. Lots of reasons. There is no downside and lots of upside to the visit.
