    Hello all

    I've applied to the Academy on May 25th and was my portal now says "competitive". How long does it usually take to go from "applicant" to "candidate"?

    Thanks for any insight

    Fellow 2021 applicant here: I believe I read on these forums that USAFA will begin to process preliminary applications on July 1st. The portals that open on that day will probably be summer seminar applicants. Whenever your portal opens, you will still have the same amount of time to complete your application (you will have a later deadline) so don't worry.

    It took about 3 weeks last year when I applied believe. Don't expect anything before July 1st I would say. If you are listed as competitive you will most likely be a candidate. For now you can start working on congressional nominations- most portals are open now and it was much more extensive than I anticipated last year.
