    One of my additional recommendation has not been completed yet. I've tried to keep on top of it. But it is not done yet. Will this affect my application? For example, they won't look at my application until it is complete? Or will they just look at the completed one? Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Your application will be up for review once all the required recs are in. You can submit your application without the outstanding rec and once it is submitted it will be automatically added to your application. Good luck!

    Thank you for your information! You don't think that it would look bad that it has not been submitted?

    Not at all! There were people in my company who didn't submit additional recommendations. Keep in mind that Admissions is looking for quality over quantity. They would rather see a candidate with a few well-written recommendations than a candidate with a bunch of recommendations that simply recapitulate their resume. If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me!

    You should be able to e-mail your admissions officer for your area and let them know your scores. It's been so long since I did the AIM application I forget if they require official scores but if so you can probably have them sent later just to validate your e-mail; again, your admissions officer can better direct you as to what is needed after you e-mail him/her.

    Question here, since aim applications are sent tomorrow, does anyone know why time they will come in at? I'm on eastern standard time and wanted to get an exact time. If I do not get in, is the next step in the application process the actual academy application?

    I don't believe USCGA publishes an exact time but when I applied I believe they came out in the afternoon around 1400-1500 EST.

    Yes, if you don't get in then you should still apply. You should also look into the Cadet for a Day program. Registration for that usually opens some time in August and you should sign up as soon as possible since the slots fill up pretty quickly.

    ^yep, and to add roughly 30% of the incoming class attends aim -- in regards to how many of that 70% applied and didn't get in or didn't apply at all is unclear, but statistics are statistics and a deferral from aim should by NO MEANS be indicative of 2020 application performance.

    ^ yes. My son did not get into AIM, but did get accepted as a cadet at CGA. AIM only has space for about 1/3 of the qualified applicants, so of course many who are qualified to apply to CGA won't get into AIM. I believe to be considered for Cadet for a Day you have to have applied to AIM, but I hope Objee will clarify that.
