Status of my application is Candidate, should I be looking to get an LOA or not?
The basic 3 status' are "Prospect" (Filled out the basic card and inquiring); "Applicant" (Has an on-line application started and even possibly completed); "Candidate" (Has a nomination and/or the academy considers them competitive.
Unfortunately, there's probably anywhere between 3000-6000 that will be considered "Candidate". Obviously it's good because it means you're competitive and/or have a nomination. But it doesn't have any bearing on whether or not you get an LOA.
hope this helps.... mike.....
It does, thank you.
I have a question about the candidate status. In the catalogue that I recienely got it defines all the titles that you can have (prospect, applicant, etc.) and one of them after "candidate" was "qualified candidate." I thought that candidate meant that you were qualified (well...you dont have to have a nom). If there is a stage of "qualified candidate" how do you achieve that.
Remember that catalogues are not updated yrly, don't put weight into a catalogue. Two yrs on this site and I have yet to see someone post "qualified". That is more of a USNA thing, notice they talk about triple q., AFA candidates don't.
I was just wondering what that meant. So the next stage after candidate is "candidate appointee" right?
If I'm not mistaken, if you look at your application online, it will have 2 line entries.
The complete referring to your application. It's been a couple years since last time I looked at anyone's, but I believe the next will be similar to:
There may even be one stating an LOA. But I believe that the status of the individual stays at "Candidate". But I could be wrong. mike.....
Ok, that makes sence. Thanks Christcorp for unconfusing me. Now that I see it, that looks correct to me. Mine does look like the first one.
