    Hello all,

    I completed my file Feb 28 and was found fully qualified yesterday, March 25. My FFR told me my odds are pretty good. Does anyone know how much insight an FFR has into admissions? I would really like to attend USMA, so any information is very appreciated :)

    Trust your FFR. He/she is the link between you and admissions.

    I am a FFR. No FFR can tell you with 100% accuracy if you will get an offer. In my case, I am in close touch with the assignment people at West Point. We discuss the pros and cons of the top candidates in my two Congressional Districts. I have some significant influence but the final decisions are made at West Point. I can tell you that in each of my Districts, 4-5 people have "a good chance" but normally only one in each District will be chosen.
    When a FFR tells you that you have a good chance it usually means that you are a strong candidate but that does not mean you will get an offer - it just means you are very much in the running.
    The FFR does not have good visibility on who will be picked from the NWL because these candidates are from all over the U.S.

    As a FFR, I stick to you are competitive, fighting chance, and not likely. I stay away from discussing who is going get offers in my state with my RC as since I don't know all the candidates, I believe somewhat unfair for me to advocate for someone. Sometimes I am asked by RC to provide inputs and I do. I am like data, so using the Field Force Admissions database, I can see how candidates stack up and can reasonably guess top two or three candidates that will get offers. If your FFR is experienced, he or she knows how many candidates are competitive for an appointment in her district.
