    Hello,
    I have been on the forum for about a month now, but I feel I should introduce myself. I have applied to usafa, usna, and usma, though I internally know which academy is my top choice. So far I have been fortunate enough to receive an appointment offer to USMA, a nomination to USNA, and a principal nomination to USAFA. Hopefully, they send out BFE's to principal nom's before march or april, but I can certainly wait if I have to.
    Thanks,
    Graduate47
