If so, another appointment panel meets tomorrow!
Best of luck!
I am completed, but my CFA isn't processed yet...
I do have my official nomination, DODMERB qualified, and everything else...
For some reason I don't think I'll be in tomorrow's stack.
Have any appointments gone out yet? Just curious, we have been finished for a month now. Just waiting and hoping for a big envelope. I know most won't go out until March, and I won't be sad if nothing comes. It would however be like Christmas early if we did get one. Then we wouldn't have to worry about so many other college apps. We are working on them though.
I have no idea, I'm just inclined to trust in the advice we're getting from Flieger, CC, and the others who really have the insight. I'm sure that a couple of "Master of the Universe" type candidates may have already been tapped to keep them from going elsewhere, but it sounds to me, with what little I know, that the panels are meeting, reviewing, racking and stacking, and then sitting tight to see what other packages come their way - perhaps after they've done it a while, gotten some MOC noms in, and established a clear hierarchy in the stack, then they might start sending out some BFEs - just private speculation on my part - like Flieger posted a while back - "Don't try to game the system this time" So I won't (with my fingers crossed)
"Officially" from USAFA, no selections have been made.
Now...if any really HAVE been made, they are NOT telling ALO's.
And as I said earlier...they have good reason; they're picking such a small class this time, they want to see EVERYONE "up close and in person" (figure of speech) before they fully commit.
We've already been updating my son's package - he's got new college transcripts into his counselor, some updated EC's, and his latest SAT scores come out Thu. He may not get an appointment in the end but it won't be for lack of effort...
Were you, by any chance, implying that the panel have met already before? So they have already had a meeting before and decided on a number of candidates?
I think they've been meeting for a couple of weeks now. I know my son's package was being readied to go to panel two weeks ago. I really wouldn't be looking for any BFEs for quite a while though... It's pretty obvious that USAFA wants to cover all their options before filling slots. JMHO
