    Does anybody have both their Letter of Assurance and a Congressional Nomination? I just got a letter saying I got my nom, and I've had a loa since October.. so I guess I'm in! Does anybody else belong to that group yet? I figured now is as good a time as any to start making friends for BCT....

    Congrats to you!

    You could start a new thread in the USAFA section called "2013 Appointments" and start taking the roll of your new classmates. :thumb:

    I agree with btown... It seems like only really dedicated/qualified people are even motivated enough to search for a forum like this. Although I do feel sorry for you.. I wouldn't be able to stand waiting till March or April

    3.93 GPA (on USAFA's refigured scale), 29 ACT (trying to raise it), lots of volunteer work, multi-sport captain, good CFA scores. How about you? I'm curious since you already have a nom and LOA.

    Yeah, the waiting will suck. It will be worth it though if I get in. I've got my heart set on USAFA.

    actually, just because you got into summer seminar does not mean you will be accepted. in my SS element, we all applied after, and only 4 of us got accepted. SS is not a guarantee into the Academy. oh, and we all did maintain our good stats for our senior year.

    No I didn't attend SS. I didn't start seriously considering USAFA until it was too late for SS. What are your stats 13ryan13?
