    How long after completing the app do you hear back from admissions? I've heard that some have taken 2 weeks, and that others have taken 2 months for any kind of response from admissions.

    I completed my app this morning (Jan 22nd).

    Does it depend on how competitive of a candidate you are?

    Thanks in advance.

    There is no one set answer to your question. This is your opportunity to practice patience.

    Are you talking about SLE or admission to the academy?

    I don't know. Its up to WP admissions. Since no here is close to the inner circle other than one person I know. And they are not one for kiss and tell.

    This is the most difficult phase, the waiting. This is why its preached to work on a Plan B and C

    Good Luck

    The people that are hearing now have had their applications finished since fall. If you just submitted today, there's no way you're in the first wave, if you are accepted. Many factors come into play here...but mostly you just have to play the waiting game. Have you heard that you are triple qualified? Do you have a nomination? You file hasn't gone before the board yet because it wasn't complete. Now that it is, hopefully it will go next week or the week after, and they will determine how you compare to others in your district. Good luck.

    Also new here... What do you mean by "have you heard if you are triple qualified?" Will the SA's notify you when you are 3Q'd? I've completed an application to the USAFA (cleared by dodmerb, great cfa, good academics) but I haven't received official notification that I'm "triple qualified."

    USMA sends a "3Q Letter" to indicate that candidates are 3Q'ed. USAFA does not.

    Not everyone hears, but many do get a letter or it's on the portal.

    I finished my application in August... Which probably played a role in my LOA. I know admissions preaches how being punctual and ahead of the game is highly looked upon. Did you get a nomination if you are just now finishing?

    No. I don't think so.

    I applied at the end of July, received a Letter of Encouragement in Early September, and an Offer of Appointment was in my mailbox yesterday.

    I did receive a nomination in November, but was unable to complete the application until my second semester started.

    Thank you all very much for the responses! Best of luck to all who are still waiting :rockon:
