    When I initially enter into my portal, this comes up: ACCEPTED CL2016 candidates: please check your portal for the 1st admissible mailing
    (15 Feb 2012) - The 1st admissible mailing (1AM) has been posted for any ACCEPTED CL2016 candidate. This 1AM is the first of subsequent admissible mailings to be posted to your candidate portal. It contains additional information as you continue to prepare for R-day!

    Do we have to buy them from an AAFES or can we go to an NEX or MCEX? You see, living in San Diego, the nearest army base is Fort Irwin (a good four hours away by car) and the nearest Marine Corps base is 20 minutes away.

    My DD has an appointment but there is no "boot letter" that we can see shown on the web portal. She would like to buy her boots now to start breaking them in. Based on the boot letter that you have, can you please let us know what types of boots are available to choose from for the class of 2016? Thx.

    The box in the upper left-hand corner of the portal says "admissible mailings". In there is the pdf for the boot letter.

    Best of Luck

    Hello clamelken2 - I checked again. My DD's portal does not shows a box in the upper left-hand corner titled "admissible mailings." Perhaps this box only shows after a candidate accepts an appointment. My DD has been offered an appointment but not accepted yet (still waiting to hear from SA in Colorado). Can you please share what the letters says regarding the choices of boots available to the USMA class of 2016?

    center56 - Thank you for sharing the boot information. Yesterday I inquired with the admissions office, and their response was "only candidate that have already accepted can view the boot letter."
