    I just received a Letter of Assurance to the Air Force Academy for the class of 2020 this morning (best day ever). Assuming I receive a nomination, how long will I be waiting until I receive my offer of appointment? Also, has anyone else heard from USAFA? Thanks!

    Same situation as you! LOA received this AM, pending nomination. I was wondering the same thing.

    Mine was completed on Nov. 9, and I had to receive a waiver (which came back in 2 weeks).

    The Air Force Academy gives candidates individual deadlines by which they need to complete their application. I've heard earlier deadlines are given to more competitive candidates. Overall, I think the staggered deadline system is used so that the Academy can review applications at a steady rate, rather than receive hundreds of apps at once.

    Wow, didn't know that. Do the other SA's have this staggered deadline format too?

    @aka1998 Awesome, maybe I will see you there. I am waiting to hear back from other Academies so I haven't made my decision yet. Congratulations though, sounds like you got your first choice!!

    No, only Air Force. USNA and USMA have set application deadlines, but the earlier the better.

    May I ask about your stats? What do your academics and extracurriculars look like?
