Im finishing up my junior year in high school, and I have been accepted into Summer Seminar. I do have an applicant file open for the Class of 2015 and my current status is: APPLICANT, COMPETITIVE APPLICATION. I got a letter in the mail, recently from AFA saying that i have the potential to compete for appointment based on my summer seminar application. I wanted to know, when do they actually tag someone as a CANDIDATE and when do candidate kits go out? I tried calling my Academy counselor, but can't seem to get in touch with him. Ive also been seeing stuff on this forum but I dont actually see a good answer out there. Anyone else who is in the same situation, feel free to join in, the more input, the better.
