    I cannot get interview with my LO for Naval Academy application.
    She cancelled the interview appointment, delayed, rescheduled for about 3 months now.
    She says she is busy with her job and family, which I understand --I know this is her volunteer work but I cannot complete my app due to this last step. (Everything else is completed.)
    I also contacted Naval admission officer too, but they do not reply to my phone calls or email.

    I read some posts said LO has different priority deadline among applications so whole situation makes me frustrated and worried.

    What should I do? Anybody has any advice for this discouraged soul?

    Do you mean your BGO? If yes, this thread has some good ideas about what steps to take:

    First, the question is how long your application has been complete. BGOs aren't expected to interview candidates until they've completed at least 50% of their application. If you have been complete for awhile, I suggest you contact the Area Coordinator and explain the situation. The AC will likely check with the BGO. If she is unable to meet with you within a reasonable period of time, the AC will likely assign you to another BGO who has time between now and Jan. 31.

    Don't worry . . . at some point USNA will review your file without your BGO interview.

    Thanks for support.

    Yes, it has been whilen since my application has been completed. I have updated my progress with BGO so BGO is up to speed with that.
    For last three month, BGO called me during school (my school don't allow cell phone usage at all) and expected me to meet her that day or asked call her certain days to set up next day arrangement( when I called , she said "call me other times. I am busy with real job" which happened three time already).

    After last attempt, I was so frustrated so tried to contact Admissions Counselor. However, No respond.

    Finally , I was able to talk somebody in admission but they said contact BGO & assign new BGO is unlikely . I feel like I am lost here.

    Thank you for helpful link.

    I am afraid that I might need to do The last step.

    You can find your regional BGO by zip code on the USNA site. That's your BGO's "boss" that can help you.

    It's not all that drastic to contact the Area Coordinator. Just be polite and respectful. Explain that it's appears to have been hard for the BGO to find time to meet with you. You've had your package complete for awhile and would like to get the interview done as soon as reasonably possible.

    If your package has been 100% complete (other than CFA and medical) for more than a month, the situation is probably already on the AC's radar as well as that of Admissions. If the interview doesn't get done, USNA will review your package without it -- they don't like to, but will.
