    I finished my entire application for usna on January 31st. I have an loa, and I was told I passed my CFA and everything else. For anyone who has already received their BFE, how long is the wait usually?

    Do you have a nom? Has your nom source submitted his list of noms to USNA?

    Yeah I have a nomination from my congressman. I'm not sure if he submitted the list yet but on my usna profile, it says nomination received.

    My impression based upon my personal observations as an Area Coordinator for twelve years is that Admissions has a tendency to wait until all the nominating sources have filed their slates before getting to deep into announcing offers. Part of the problem is the matter of candidates with multiple noms. The SA's want to get as many highly qualified candidates as possible and candidates with multiple nominations present the opportunity to optimize their take in this regard.
    Locally, I know that most of the local candidates were notified of their noms several weeks before they all were posted on the summary, and it was at least a week after that before offers started to flow... to those with LOA's first, of course.

    I hope this helps, and best wishes.

    StayingPositive - For what it's worth - DS had an LOA and his nom was posted to his portal on Jan. 13 (although the date of nom was Jan 6 on the portal). He got the BFE on Jan. 22.

    Congrats and enjoy the ride!

    Seems like appointments have slowed and based on your comments, that makes sense. DS was notified of principal by MOC in early Dec, portal updated late Dec and he is still patiently waiting for BFE. Knows he is tripple Q as MOC was notified of academic Q and he already knew about medical and CFA. Thanks
