    Hello,

    I was just wondering how many people are completely done with their application besides a nomination. I am about 5 days from being done myself and I was wondering where everyone else is.

    Thanks!

    DS is finished and has a Presidential Nomination. Finally finished it up last Sunday. I know there are several other regular posters who are finished, they have been done for a while.

    My daughter's done with everything, including her nomination packages. Now, the waiting begins! Good luck everyone!

    DS isn't done yet, hope to be except for CFA and nomination by this weekend. Feeling VERY behind on curve ball though. Other than below, essays are what's holding DS back. He HATES writing. But getting nomination essays underbelt I think will help as they gave him a starting place and some focus for these essay answers.

    NOTE: check your online checklists: DS had 2 teachers who were redquested for evals. in July, politely reminded in Sept. and STILL have not filled out or completed evals. One started it in Oct. but stopped and hasn't finished! Transcripts were also not sent although requested weeks (wow months actually) ago, as soon as school started. I sent follow up emails this time to the teachers figuring maybe coming from parent and not just student will have more impact (polite and framed as "is there a problem with the website" so as not to be accusatory). DS had also just sent out Thank Yous to all those who gave recommendations for nominations. Some of these are the same teachers who haven't done academy evals. yet. Maybe will shame them into getting it done. Very frustrating when so much is riding on the line.

    One of the essays is holding me back but other than that I am done with my application. Tomorrow I'm having a big work day to complete even just a draft of the essay that I'm having trouble with. I'm also submitting all my materials for nominations tomorrow (really late but still before the deadline).

    All done except for the wait...

    My DS is finished with his application; got a post card from USAFA yesterday stating that his "file is now complete". All MOC packages are in (last one was due Oct 7) and interviews are being held first weekend in Nov.

    This is my second son to go through the process. When DS #1 struggled with the essays, he had a favorite English teacher go over the content with him. The extra opinion was just what he needed to get him "over the hump".

    The application was easy compared to the wait! Best of luck to all!
