    I was wondering, does USCGA have ALO's like USNA, USMA and USAFA?

    CGA has Coast Guard officers that serve as regional Admissions Officers (AO). http://www.uscga.edu/admissions2.aspx?id=2238
    On a more local scale, CGA has volunteers called Admissions Partners. Partners provide assistance and information throughout the application and admission process. Partners also help with recruiting applicants through high school visits and attending college fairs. In addition, Partners conduct the optional admissions interview.
    Partners can be:
    Alumni of the Coast Guard Academy
    Active duty and reserve personnel
    Parents of current and former cadets
    Members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary
    Coast Guard civilian employees

    Just to add a little more context, the admissions officers are stationed at the Coast Guard Academy. They handle certain regions. There are also admissions partners throughout the country, coordinated in regions. In my past experience as an admission partner, an active duty officer worked with the admissions office to staff events and interviews with Admission partners in the area.

    Thank you both very much! I'm an incoming HS freshman and am trying to learn all the "ropes" of Service Academy related things.
