    I see that numerous candidates are receiving BFE's and calls from their MOC's already. Can anyone advise if candidates are notified that they were not accepted and if so, when does this happen? Thanks

    Still a lot of appointment decisions to go out. The bulk go out in February and March. The TWE's normally come later. The Academy publishes 15 April as the date that all candidates will be notified of status.

    I got my TWE last year on February 28th, it was dated February 22nd. I am from NM so I don't know if that's early.

    USNA states that all candidates will be informed of their status by April 15. In reality, most hear earlier.

    Those who have not completed their packets (other than medical) by the Jan. 31deadline could start seeing turndown letters not long after that. For candidates with completed packages, BFEs and TWEs will be going out in large numbers in Feb. and March.

    So that still makes me wonder what role the delayed deadline in accepting SAT/ACT scores has on your package - if the USNA starts sending declining letters as of January 31. Posted this question on a different thread, but didn't get any relevant answers:confused:

    Pure 100% conjecture here: Since there are many factors that go into the whole candidate assessment, it is entirely conceivable that there are candidates who will not be saved by higher scores on their SAT/ACT exams. On the other hand, there may be some candidates who may be able to salvage an offer of appointment by virtue of scores from January exams. Just guessing, and I have no special insight into why the deadline was extended. Take it for what it is. Best wishes for a short but fortuitous wait.

    I don't think the change in timing SAT scores makes any difference. You need to have a standardized test score submitted by Jan. 31. You can retake the test on Jan. 31 and, if those scores are better, they will be substituted.

    I said that those with an INCOMPLETE package as of Jan. 31 could see a turndown letter. Incomplete means at least one element (other than medical and, quite frankly, other than BGO interview) must not be complete.

    So, if you haven't submitted ANY standardized test score and are waiting for the Jan. 31 test . . . well, I wouldn't do that. I would submit your highest score to date and then hope for a better score.

    Sort of on this topic: If I didn't receive a nomination, but I've had a completed file for two months (let's say I don't receive a VP nom in March), will I just not hear anything back at all?

    As mentioned someplace on this site, the objective of Admissions is to notify every candidate of his/her status on or about April 15, 2014. This notification is provided so that candidates can finalize their plans for the upcoming academic year.
