    Recently, I have noticed a lot of new entries being added to the appointment thread. Does anyone (especially one of our ALO's) know whether USAFA sends "waves" of appointments prior to March, like USMA did? I could be wrong about this, but it makes sense that a whole bunch of people would be appointed once all the noms and applications are processed at the end of January/beginning of February.

    Most of the waves are between March 7 and April 30. Doesn't mean some don't get notified before and after. Simple that the March to April time fram is the largest wave.

    Thank you for clarifying this. I guess I will plan to wait another month or so for my portal update. :D

    Wildblueyonder, I just gotta say- you are the most positive, upbeat person! The rest of us on here tend to get kinda whiny and depressing, but you have such a positive attitude! Reading your posts really helps me to try and stay more positive! You're awesome!

    Thank you so much, Bailey! I really appreciate your kind words. I have been inspired by your posts, as well--you seem to be so much more patient than I am :p. I definitely believe I have been blessed to get this far, and based on your postings, I know you feel the same way. Hopefully we will be classmates in Colorful CO this year.

    Oh goodness, I am only patient because I am forced to be! I am learning a lot about patience this year, lol. Yes, I have been so blessed already by this journey, and hoping desperately that it will continue. I also hope we get to be classmates next year here in CO! I am blessed enough to live here, and oh my gosh it's so beautiful! Even today, it was nice enough for me to go running in shorts, lol! BTW, congrats on your nomination to USAFA and appointment to USNA. I am assuming USAFA is first pick...?
