    According to ALO, the admissions board met again today.

    If DoDMERB is still processing my medical review, would I have even been looked at today (the rest of my application has been complete for days)?

    This only worries me because ALO told me that 90% of cadets are chosen by the time this December meeting ends.

    Not all nominations have gone out yet so it is very early. Be patient. The forum will light up as appointments begin to come out. Best wishes. :thumb:

    Thanks for the fast reply!

    It's not that I'm losing patience - I am fine.

    I am just asking if they even look at your file if your medical results have not been returned.

    Not saying your ALO is wrong, but use a little logic here. If 90% of all appointments are chosen by December, why would the academy post the vast majority of their appointments in the April-May time frame. Even if they were waiting til Mid-January to validate all the nominations, they could have the overwhelming majority of appointments offered by March.

    And on a side note; considering that the deadline to get your application completed isn't until January, I don't know how 90% of all appointments could be chosen by December.

    As Dad mentioned; be patient.

    Would the Academy of looked at my profile if my ALO evaluation is not completed yet? (I did it, he just hasn't submitted the information yet)

    No they wouldn't. But just because you don't see your online application updated to show the evaluation completed, doesn't mean it's not completed. Many times, especially this time of year, your online application can be off by a couple of weeks. Now; if your ALO told you they haven't done it yet, then that's another thing. But no. Until your application is 100% complete, the board generally does not review it at all.

    Congratulations to you and your DD! :smile: And I agree, this is a long and arduous process. I am still waiting on DoDMERB to review me, so I probably won't hear anything back about my status (LOA-wise) until the spring. This waiting period is agonizing. I am also waiting to hear back from my MOC about my nomination status.
