    Has anyone entering the class of 2017 received the BFE yet? I know a lot of my questions are "how long does _____ take?" But I just like to be prepared and informed with time to prepare things.

    appointments

    Hi! There are quite a few kids that have received offers of appointment. These come via FED EX in a large envelope, is that what you are referring to? If not and you are referring to the binder full of all of the information needed to attend, that will not come until late April, early May I believe. Don't quote me on that exact timeframe though, :). There is a class of 2017 parents FB group with parents from earlier classes that have posted timelines, information, and have been super helpful.

    Yeah the Binder-full of information is what I was referring to. I received a letter of appointment already. I'm just really excited about this whole thing and want to know as much as possible. Thank you for the expected time frame and I'll try to get my parents on the Facebook group.

    Congrats to you!!!!! Here is a link to the FB group, there are documents linked on the FB page from the class of 2016, so you can get an idea of what the Binder will include. There will be an April Admissions Open House and that has been discussed on the FB page as well as information about getting your TWIC card, shots that you will be required to get, and Passport information as well! Have your parents join!

    There has been some talk about the class of 2017 making its own FB page, but it hasn't been made to my knowledge.

    While you wait for your packet to arrive, here is a link to the instructions for last year's reporting class. http://usmma.edu/admissions/PDFs/LoggingIn2016.pdf
    Remember, these are subject to change. But it will give you an idea of what to expect. Good luck!

    Not a whole lot you can do now except wait. Part of your success at KP will be learning to manage alot of info on short notice. Some folks have posted helpful links for what '16 had to prepare. There will be an open house. You will for sure need a TWIC card (google it for nearest office to your home..sometimes they not very close). Be adaptable, flexible and expect the unexpected. Parents of candidates should seek out their local USMMA Parents Association. Enjoy the ride!

    I got my BFE two weeks ago. Principal nominee.

    It feels awesome that I got into a Service Academy... at this point I am just waiting on AFA and NA to make the call.
