    BCT start date 2011

    Congratulations future cadet on appointment. Did the Letter of Approval that you got say that the BCT start date for this year is June 23rd or were you just guessing because they have started BCT on Thursdays for the past years? I wanted to put that date on my calendar and count down the days.

    I just took my CFA and will have everything in by this Tuesday. How long did it take for you to get your decision? What does BFE stand for? How are you preparing for BCT (placement exams, physical endurance, military knowledge)?
    I don't know about you, but I don't want be unprepared in any way!

    First I wouldn't count down the days. Because like everyone has said, you will miss everything that you have now. So I would just relax and live life. Also BFE stands for Big Fat Envelope.

    Thanks. The months that we have will go by quickly and I understand to relax before. I will go to Prom and Senior Night After Prom and connect with my friends on a deeper level but there has to be some self-discipline and dedication. I will be finishing my Eagle project and preparing for the Fitness demands since I live at a low-altitude. Did you get appointment?

    I know my life will take off during BCT but gosh, I want to prepare by running each morning and always doing small workouts. I still have AP exams too. There is no time to relax. Hah

    Just make sure the decision is yours and not your mothers. I am sure, since you were offered an appointment and a very bright teenager, you know your parents can force you or get into conflict with your passions by saying "No". When you click that button, there is no turning back right? I am not sure if you can change.
    Congratulations, dude. God be with you and "so help me God" to get in. :)

    Ok well you sign the official offer of appointment there is no online stuff with something this serious and you are just finishing your application??? I dont mean to sound rude but how would you mark your calendar for June 23rd if your application has not even been received by the Academy.

    Hey, about the message that I put before AFA15. I was reading a book about the Air Force Academy, and they said that alot apply because of their parents forcing them. I didn't mean to say that you were one of those; I shouldn't of told you that anyways because you went through all the process! Haha. I was just about to go to bed worried about stuff, so whatever I said I didn't mean to hurt you. I am sorry.
    About the application deadline, it is Feb 15, and yes, I waited to the last moment, but that's how I thrive and finish sometimes. Um, there is NO excuse for not finishing everything, sir. You are right and I totally agree with every word. Thanks for getting my brain together.
