    Exactly when do you know a BFE is sent from USNA/coming to your mailbox besides actually getting it?

    I had a LOA since late October and I received a senatorial nomination since Jan 4.

    Will a BGO know when it is sent?
    Can admissions actually tell you whether they sent it out?

    (impatiently waiting)

    Some of it depends on when your Senator actually submitted his/her slate to USNA. MOCs have until Jan. 31 and, just b/c they notify you, doesn't mean they notified USNA.

    Once USNA is notified, it usually takes 2-3 weeks. USNA lets your MOC know so he/she can call you with congratulations (some do, some don't). Then, about a week later, USNA mails your BFE. About 10 days after that, they notify your BGO. So, your BGO will know, but after you do. :smile:

    Probably a little different for everyone, but my son had an LOA in early October and a nomination just before Christmas per his portal (never received anything from their office). The blue folder arrived in the mail last Saturday.

    In my experience, some MOCs are very proactive about communicating with candidates/nominees/appointees, and others . . . not.

    If your MOC isn't active/proactive, you may have a longer wait to hear anything, but it doesn't affect the final product . . . an appointment.

    Navy2016,
    If your nomination showed up on your CIS portal on January 4, I have a feeling that you will receive a BFE really soon like this Saturday unless you live far from USNA. It took 2 weeks and 4 days for DS's BFE to arrive in CA once nomination showed up on his portal. Remember, BFE is pretty big that it might not fit in your mailbox! Have a very nice weekend stalking the mail man(woman)!

    My DS received principal nomination 6 January, that is the actual date on CIS, and triple q in October. We are waiting as well.
