Discussion in 'Air Force Academy - USAFA' started by Dadx4, Mar 30, 2016.
The official USAFA admissions timeline seems to indicate this. One more day until everyone knows?
I think there will be some out tomorrow...the little clue they kind of have on the portal sites indicates a change to some statuses tomorrow.
Where do you see that in the portal? I just had a friend who's daughter just received her Appointment on the 19 of March and has 40 days to accept or turn down, I thought most were saying they had ten days, so as to open slots for more???
There have been so many people who see it and then others who say no....Its there as this part of the portal only changes right before offers are sent out, every single time. It changed again this morning and the last time was March 17th, the following 3 days was when a flood of offers was posted. So I believe March 31, April 1&2 are going to show the final flood (smaller than last) of offers.
So exactly what does it say? Like look for a status update soon? Sorry if you answered that already I just got on. Like on my daughters Application Status just simply has said for ever
Your Application is:
Complete So maybe this means she won't hear anything soon?
Sorry, I'm not getting it.....see what or not see what?
It's the portal update at the very bottom....
Its the date on the very bottom of the portal, I believe it's the version date described on previous threads.
But every time that changes something major changes on the portals over the next few days. And it's not just an update on software.
Wait, you're saying tomorrow is the last day appointments are being offered?? That doesn't seem right
I seem to remember Insider saying that info at the bottom has nothing to do with when offers go out.
According to the admissions timeline on the website, they said that most appointments are given out by the end of March, and April is a time to send letters to all the candidates who did not make it.
Yes but it has something to do with the BIGgger changes to the portal
Unless something has changed radically this year, "no" everyone will not know. Until you are informed, by portal update, that you are not receiving an appointment, you (or DD/DS) are still in the hunt. This is about the time, historically, when another waive of appointments goes out. Many may hear in the next week or so. USAFA contacts MOCs in advance and gives a few days for them to contact the applicant before portals are updated.
As for the writing on the portal itself, I do not think it means anything -- when portals are updated to share any substantive news, you will know, and receive an email to check your portal. Portals are usually updated at 03 or so, not mid day -- so no real use checking multiple times a day (although my wife could not resist).
My DD received a call from her MOC on a Tuesday, mid-April; her portal was updated Friday morning. I know other cadets that received appointments in May and even one in June.
I know its hard -- we have all been there - but just hang on!
If this is true, do ALL the remaining candidate portals change or do just the ones that get an appointment change?
1. Don't assume it is true
2. It is just a stamp indicating what release/version of the portal is being used
3. New version/releases and USAFA activity regarding appointments are purely coincidental
4. USAFA is a bureaucracy - they aren't that clever (no offense intended)
USAFA Online Application v2.46v released 30 Mar 2016
Today's date is 3/30/2016 (US Mountain Time...
It is not a secret code indicating the chosen should check their portal
Shhhhhh. If you really want the answer, then we will have to kill everyone on this thread.
Yes but up until yesterday it still read March 17th.....hmmmmm
Since this is a forum for real information on the process, I really don't think playing coy games is appropriate. If you know something and wish to contribute that is fine, but giving "hints" without any factual information does nothing to help the candidates here.
