    My sons application is complete. There is no info in his portal regarding a local contact (the equivalent of a B/G officer). Is he missing something, or does it come later? Should he contact admissions?

    It has been 12 years since my oldest DS was nominated to USMA, so the procedures have changed. It certainly cannot hurt to reach out to your FFR by sending an introductory email.

    I'm sure many others on thus forum will have more current suggestions.

    Yes, your son should take the initiative to reach out to him/her.

    My DS is having the same issue. I used that link above and it says no FFR is in your area. What should we do? That is last interview needed.

    An interview by a FFR is not a requirement for admission - for this very reason. There are not enough FFRs to interview everyone.
