    Does the academy hand out Letters of Assurance, Letters of Encouragement or any type of indicator on your competitiveness?

    Any help!

    I've heard that the process has changed slightly this year, so someone else may want to chime in with some clarification.

    But bottom line: if you're a) very, VERY well-qualified (to the point that the AFA thinks they're going to lose you to some Ivy early acceptance gig) or b) a heavily recruited athlete -- yes, you may get a letter before March to tell you that you will get in if you get a nomination.

    If that doesn't happen, but your member of Congress gives out principle nominations, you get it, and you meet all the admission requirements, then you know you get in. (Principle nomination = member of Congress saying 'Assuming he/she is qualified, I 100% want this person to have a slot.')

    Otherwise, you get to be with the rest of the crowd, compulsively comparing SAT scores on the Internet. I know--thrilling.

    How do you think they are going to deal with the, "Early Action"? The letter indicates that they will tell you your status by January 15th. This is clarified by stating that they will tell you whether you have an appointment if you have a nom, that you have an LOA if you don't have a nom or if your status is deferred to the regular selection process.

    Also, if you are not appointed on Jan 15, then you have the chance of being thrown into the national pool and being reviewed again.

    You'll know eventually. Don't null on it because the thought can ruin your day. Just enjoy life.
