    So my USMA portal update says "Offered Appointment" but I haven't received a BFE or an official letter via the "official correspondence".
    Is it because I haven't turned in my 7th semester transcript yet?

    Thanks! Also, are you supposed to receive anything via the "Official Correspondence" window if you're offered appointment?

    Congrats! Any idea if BFEs will only go out in big waves like last week or will they go out here and there for LOA holders, principle nominees, etc?

    Big wave last week. Smaller chunks here on out (as stated on WP FB). Likely smaller and smaller until no more.

    We are also waiting on my DS's BFE; portal updated late Friday. We really thought it would be here today.

    I live overseas so I imagine it'll take a couple weeks.

    Congrats on the appointment! I was just wondering, if you haven't received that update on your portal does that most likely mean you're not in this first wave of BFEs? And does that mean, you'll just have to wait until WP sends the rest of the appointments later on?

    Thanks! I'm not a USMA expert, but I believe so. According to many people on this forum, I'm predicting the next big wave will be sometime around mid-Feb/late-Feb...but like I said, not an expert. I'm sure you'll hear good news soon! Best of luck.

    Congrats on your appointment!
    There will not be another "big wave". From this point on small amounts will go out on a weekly basis until there are no spots left.

    We are hoping today; if not received by Saturday should my DS contact admissions? As previously stated he received a phone call from our MOC this past Thursday and his portal showed the offer of appointment late Friday night.

    Some times the portal opens after the BFE arrives, mine didnt. I got the portal update then my BFE came the next day.

    That would be the best guess. the first wave was sent via priority mail last Wednesday or Thursday. But then again you know the US Postal Service, it could take some time depending on where you live in the country or Int'l. The snow in the East and Midwest could be playing games on the mail. Just be patient.

    How many BFEs are typically in the next wave? And when should I find out if I didn't receive an appointment?

    So there will be future "Big waves" again, like this one?

    There will be future waves but smaller.
