Hi everybody! First I would just like to say that I'm new to the forum and I look forward to having some of my questions answered as well as contributing to the community. Although I am a new member to the forum, I am not a new visitor. I have had many questions answered just by doing a simple search on this site. Everything I have seen has been very informative, and I have really enjoyed reading some of the responses. I have been looking through the forum as well as searching through Google and emailing my ALO, but I can't find the answer to one question that was bothering me a little bit. I have recently applied to USAFA and USNA, USAFA being my primary choice in a college (prospective class of 2015 candidate). I understand the LOA concept, but I had another question concerning the application process. I know a kid in my high school who has already received two LOA's from USMA and USAFA. He's very qualified. I'm not necessarily seeking an LOA (yes ChristCorp, I've been reading your responses to "LOA" related post's. I don't want to bother you with another one ). I simply want to know if USAFA gives out acceptance letters (not LOA's) before March. I just wanted to find out the answer to this question for some piece of mind. I know that I need to stop thinking so much about my application now that it is submitted, but for some reason I keep checking my status. If appointments are handed out from November thru March, then I will most likely keep checking my application through out the day . Nothing wrong with being curious, right? However, if I learn that there are no appointments given out other than Letter's of Assurance/Acceptance until March, then there really isn't any reason for me to check my status everyday after school. I've bounced around quite a bit in my post. The question that I'm curious about is this.. Other than Letters of Assurance/Acceptance, does USAFA accept anybody before March? Thanks for taking the time to read my lengthy post. I definitely appreciate the input from a very knowledgeable source. Thanks!
