    I haven't been here in ages, but here we go again with last kid. Website says AIM app closes on April 1st. Does that mean it's open the entire day or closes at midnight on March 31st? There's a poky letter writer...

    Hey, I have one too!

    I actually have a perfectionist that is betting me that she has untill 11:59 EST on April 1st to technically submit her AIM Application.

    I am pretty verse with the USNA stuff, but I am a complete newbie to USGA stuff.

    My interpretation says that 'AIM application process closes on April 1st' to this old man that means get it in by 11:50 PM EST Tonight?

    Thanks in advance!

    No clue. Application was submitted last night after lots of essay edits. We are hoping the guidance counselor sent the recommendation as we are on spring break and have no way to reach her other than her school email.

    My son went through the USNA/USAFA app a couple years ago but with my DD, I'm trying to navigate CGA and also feel like a newbie.

    Good luck everyone!

    Done !

    The DD is happy with her effort and decided to upload.

    She just 'Clicked' on the USCGA AIM 'Submit Button' while giving me that wry smile :tongue:

    Dd's letter writer got it in! Dd owes her a VERY nice thank-you note! We've done the CGA thing 4 times now, starting with the first one so long ago that everything was snail mail. But, it seems like there are new glitches every time. I can't believe that we're at this again, but at least it's for the last time.

    Yikes, I don't think DS did much editing at all. I guess he'll be home in July then. Perfect time to get going on those application essays.
