    Contacted my Field Force representative to set up an interview. The FF representative said they would do the interview after the nomination process was complete. This is different for me than before anyone have info as to why.

    That's different than my DS's experience. Perhaps, the FFR is just focusing on those who have a chance of getting an appointment and is using the nomination as a screening method.

    Is the FFR interview required to complete the USMA package ? I seem to recall "NO". Could the know-how comment on this ? Thanks.

    FFRs are spread thin when compared to ALOs and BGOs, thus it is likely that they wait to do interviews (if at all) until candidates have gotten pass a point in the application process.
    As for me, the FFR interview never materialized and I was still appointed.
    The bottom line is that I wouldn't worry about not getting an interview and if you get an interview, prepare for it like you would for a BGO/ALO interview.

    FFR interviews are not required for WP. If you attended SLE a Cadet would conduct an interview that filled the requirement for the candidates and also a requirement for the Cadet leadership.

    From coast to coast there are not enough FFRs for the candidates unfortunately.

    Thank you. DS attended SLE and did mention about receiving a rating at the seminar.

    I think each FFR is different. My DS's FFR called him out of the blue in July. She said that she was calling all her competitive applicants to encourge them to apply as soon as possible. She also noted that my DS attended SLE and said that he could just rely on the eval from SLE. She also offered to do her own FFR interview and eval to supplement the SLE eval.

    My DS attended SLE and interviewed with a Cadet. However, the RC said he still requires an interview with a FFO.
