    Hi guys, I'm currently a junior in high school and was wondering what there is to do after I submit my pre-candidate questionnaire? The portal says that I do not get sent the candidate kit until August if deemed competitive? I've heard of people turning in their application in as early as June. Is this possible? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Prepare on having everything in by early action (nov 1).

    Practice your CFA
    Talk to the coach for whatever sport you want to play at the academy. They can help you out a lot.
    Make contact with your ALO, call or email is fine
    Make contact with your congress people and senators.
    Get transcripts ready to send to the academy.
    Get 3 rec letters that you can send to whoever will need them.

    Showing initiative is crucial. Doing things early will help you be as prepared as possible.

    If you do that you should be fine
