    I am aware that all ALOs will have different questions they may ask, i am curious if anyone can share the questions that were asked by their ALO is their formal interview.
    Any insight will help.

    My ALO mainly asked me questions off of my resume. That being said, know every detail of your resume by heart. Additionally, I recommend asking yourself questions such as:
    1. Why do you want to attend the service academy of your choice?
    2. What makes you qualified to attend a service academy?
    3. What do you aspire to pursue in the Unites States Air Force?

    You can search more of the frequently asked questions online.

    The interview with your ALO is extremely important to your application. It's one of the few ways the academy can truly see who you are as a person. That being said, be confident and relaxed. You got this.

    Best of luck!

    When I was interviewed, my ALO asked me to send him my resume. A lot of the questions he asked me were about things on my resume (asking me to further explain my role in clubs, sports, etc). Beyond that, he asked me questions along the lines of: Why do you want to attend a service academy, Are you aware of the physical and mental challenges of the academy, How do you feel about cheating/reporting someone who is cheating, Are you prepared to enter a military environment far away from home (I come from a civilian family), Are you prepared to die for your country, etc.
    He also emphasized the difficulties that I would encounter at the academy and would ask questions like: Are you certain you want to go? It's going to suck, esp. the first year, are you sure you can meet the challenges and not give up?
    Hope this helped!
