    I know that some MOC use the method of nomination one candidate as a principal with 9 alternates, while others send 10 names equally ranked to USAFA and lets admissions at the academy decide. So my question is while a few people are starting to find out that they were principal noms and have been admitted, will those of us who were nominated the other way (10 equal candidates) start finding out about admissions, or will we be staring at empty mailboxes until late march? :eek: Hope this all makes sense

    Hi DParrish, considering the competition this year and the limited number of nominations. I should be at least be like last year where we did not hear back until the last week of March. It's hard to be patient, but you're not alone.

    Yup. Middle to end of March. The vast majority will go out this way.

    You may be all nervous and excited now... But if you get in, it will be a long tough year ahead.
