    I applied to USAFA SS about two hours after it opened. There are people from my state on this board who have been accepted. My status still reads (Your application has not been processed). I contacted my ALO twice. Once he said applications have not been looked at (though many names were already posted as haveing been accepted) the second email he said that names are not yet looked at but when they start to look at names he will write a letter for me and update me on the letter-this was two weeks ago. He was very positive in his responses but seemed unaware that this process was underway (is that even possible?)

    technically what does (Your application has not been processed) mean? Does it mean they have not looked at it? That doesn't seem possible as there were others before and after me who have gotten in. Does it mean you are on the waiting list? If so wouldn't it have said that?

    I definitely dont want to pester my ALO so wont eamil them for a while but I have no other ideas.

    Also it could be my stats are not good enough (OF COURSE!) can someone look them over and tell me what I missed.

    Honestly, your stats look good. All you can do is wait. You only know that you will be notified by March (or later, I'm not quite sure). If within two weeks your application's status has not changed, then I would try to find out why, but at the moment it may just be that they are slow at getting around to looking at all the applications.
