    Does USAFA send some nice certificate that you were offered an appointment? I got an AROTC scholarship and they sent it in a really nice leather thing. Just wondering. Thanks

    If they do - we didn't get one

    There is another thread posted showing that all the other SAs send something nice to hold the letter and pictures of the school and USAFA sends a letter you can print out

    I have heard that ALO's receive something that can be presented at an awards banquet--not sure if that is true, but wouldn't that be nice?!?!?

    The ALO for my DS has been in contact to coordinate giving him something at his senior awards luncheon. I assume it is similar to the padded display folder her received from USMA with his appointment. Anyway, I'm not exactly sure what it is, but contact your ALO. Good Luck!

    I was told there's a fedex package coming, but I still haven't gotten anything...

    Son is a C3C at the academy. He received a paper cert from his ALO at his senior recognition ceremony which we framed for him. Yes, USMA and CoastGuard sent nice, bound appointment letters to his younger brother this year. Honestly though, you will not think much about the lack of a fancy binder once you experience IDay, ADay, Parents weekend. Good luck and wear sunglasses..

    Our son had to have his guidance counselor to get in touch with his ALO and the MOC's office. Apparently one of each is coming to the awards assembly

    My ALO is also attending the HS awards night to present my certificate. He did the same for another student at my school last year.

    Not all ALOs do this. My DD's ALO came to her senior awards in dress blues and gave a very nice presentation, with the appointment certificate and her first RMO.

    You actual notification will be an email to say you have a message on your portal, which will be the official appointment letter, but it is nothing fancy. Check with your ALO ASAP to see if s/he is willing to do the presentation.
