I know for the air force academy as well as the naval academy you have to do an interview. From my understanding the one for west point is optional, so I was just curious as to how much of a factor this is to admissions. Also to set one up should I just email my Liaison? Lastly, when would be the latest date I could effectively do an interview because I am currently a college freshman and I just discovered my Liaison for my state is in the city I am in college in, but I am going home for Winter Break in 2 days. Would it still be beneficial to do an interview when I got back around Jan 10th? Thanks!
