So my DS now has three nomination sources for USAFA (Senator, Congressman (NE-02), and Presidential) and one of the ALOs we know recommended he call his Admissions Counselor to "share" and touch base. I seem to recall seeing others on this forum say similar things about how the Counselors are helpful and like the Candidates to call. According to my DS the Counselor basically dismissed him and was "unfriendly" toward him. Said the MOCs had to update the system themselves and his application had been to the panel. I don't know if there was much else in terms of conversation but my son felt put off and discouraged. He has also been calling the coach for the swim team who has been sending letters to him with his phone number and has gotten no response. Should he NOT have called?
