    How early can LOA's come out this year? I have completed my complete file and was wondering when I might hear something. I heard as early as mid-July but I am not sure how accurate that date is.
    Thanks!

    There have been a few LOA's given out as early as July. Keep in mind that LOA's are not the norm. If you receive one, get the balance of your paperwork in as quickly as possible. Good luck!!

    There will be a few July LOAs. Remember that these are normally conditional on passing the physical and getting a nomination. They can also be recinded if you get in trouble with the police or school officials, have lower grades during the first semester of your senior year, get a non-waiverable injury etc.

    Are LOAs determined individually or are there periodic boards that consider candidates. If boards are the answer, when will the first one meet?

    according to the candidate portal, the first admissions board met 1 July. LOA's can be given to candidates at any time through the admissions process but they are usually dependant on things like nominations, dodmerb qualification, CFA, etc.

    I'm not applying for WP. But I did do the prelim app for SLS. I guess this constituted WP requesting the DoDMERB physical. The date that it came up requested on the DoDMERB site was June 17th.

    June 14th for me. And that was well before I even began to look at my candidate portal.

    May have been the 14th. Can't exactly remember but I know it was about mid-june. I'm qualified now, so those dates don't come up. Just says the date of qualification.

    I received mine about 2 weeks ago in the mail and have already completed the exam. Yes, yours should be coming in either today or tomorrow because of the holiday.

    I got the letter in the mail around 18 June but it said online i was approved on 14 June. All of my exams are complete and the concorde people are reviewing my stuff today to make sure it's all in order. If it all checks out then they'll send it to dodmerb. Also, I finished the entire USMA app 29 June.

    My son got his letter from DoDMERB about two weeks ago. You will probably get yours this week - they probably could not administratively send them all out at one time.

    My son had completed as much as he could for his West Point application and all but one document for his USNA application when he received his DODMERB paperwork. He goes today for his exam. He had his eye exam a day after his paperwork arrived.
