    Hello,

    I have an LOA to USAFA, and my nomination was just uploaded on to the candidate portal. Will the status be changed to appointment? Thanks!!!

    Pretty good bet if you're 3Q. I assume medically you're fine?

    Read the LOA and check to see if it says that you are guaranteed an appointment when you get your nom. That will answer your question.

    Yes, I'm medically qualified. LOA says I'm "virtually assured of appt upon receipt of nomination".

    That was the scenario with my DS. Was 3Q & had LOA. Once his portal was updated reflecting his nomination, his appointment offer was posted within a week. Sounds like you are almost there!! :bounce: Good luck & keep us posted!

    Hey! I've had an LOA back in Sept. I became medically qualified mid-december, and got my nom mid-decemember. It's been a month now and I'm still waiting for my appointment. Hope your wait isn't as long!

    Do you recall when the change was made?

    My son also received an LOA pending a nomination. The nomination was received in mid December. His candidate portal still shows "candidate".

    I think I'm more anxious than he is and I know I should just relax.

    DS received LOA 11/06, had MOC & Senate interview 12/05, portal updated w/ MOC nom 12/10 (senate nom posted couple weeks later), received call from MOC 12/13 notifying he would be offered an appointment, portal updated with offer of appointment 12/14 - DS accepted immediately.

    Hope that answers your question and helps...

    I can certainly relate to your anxiety. Trust me you are not alone. You and your DS have done everything you can, it is out of your hands at this point. Try not to dwell, it will just cause stress - I know, I know much easier said than done.

    I have my fingers crossed for you, best of luck!!

    Same for my DS but his LOA was for Navy. He has an appt to Navy, but waiting to hear from AF to see if he gets an appt there also. We'll then travel to both SA's again and make the final decision. Bottom line is LOA plus a Nom almost always = an appointment.
