    I noticed just now on the USAFA Portal the release date went from March 6th to March 9th "release". That's two release changes in 3 days. Hope this is good news for all of us.
    USAFA Online Application v2.46t released 9 Mar 2016
    Today's date is 3/9/2016 (US Mountain Time)

    Where do you see that?
    Oh no.. I know what you mean it changes continuously. Not sure it is helpful.

    It changes every single day. That is the time the information on your portal was released to you... On the 26th of January, it says January 26 release date. On the 3rd of February, that is the release date, etc. I know everyone is getting anxious. It's hard not to see every minuscule change as something huge.

    Not true...the date changes everyday but not the release date. The date before this date was Sunday the 6th of March and before that it was Feb4th. So that is weird 2 changes in a few days
    I have not seen that in the year I have been looking at my portal. Hope it is good news for sure.

    Is there normally a big release all at once?

    Actually the "release date" only changes when the actual "code" for the website changes. It has nothing to do with appointments or any of the data.

    Sometimes the changes are very slight, like simple bug fixes, and sometimes major new functionality is introduced. Sometimes we go for months with no changes at all and sometimes there can be several releases within a few days.

    We just released the updates for the appointee kits. The most significant update was the ability to upload forms securely (rather than relying on mail, fax, or insecure email). It was a pretty major change and some of the more recent updates have been minor fixes to some problems that popped up related to the new functionality.

    Bottom line... the software version number and release date are irrelevant.

    Best wishes everyone, and good luck.

    Looks like the next two weeks (prior to spring break) was a major time for appointments last year.

    I watch this thread year after year and it is surprising to me how many folks simply don't read what USAFA publishes. Everything you need to know is in your Instructions to Candidates. Check the timeline on page 1.

    We are all well aware of the broad timeline (now through mid April) for regular selections and offers of appointments.
