    Hey Everyone,
    My acceptance email to the USAFA Summer Seminar told me that I now have a pre-candidate file open at the Academy itself! As my schedule does not allow my attendance at any other summer seminar besides Coast Guards AIM (other programs, school finals), should I still apply to WP's and Navy's Summer Programs? If I get accepted but reject the offer, will I still have a file open? Will these "files" or my acceptance take any part in the applications process for the actual Academies that start later this year?

    Thanks

    If you can't attend, don't apply. You don't need to apply to the summer seminars to be able to open a file. I think that the pre candidate files are available for people to fill out in a few months (April-ish or sooner) and basically it will ask for information similar to the material you put on the summer seminar application so the academy will be receiving information from you anyway. Opening a file does not need to be done through the summer seminar application so if you will be applying to the other SAs and you can't go to the seminar, don't apply to the seminar, rather check out when the pre candidate application is available (for USAFA, it opens on March 1st).

    Thank you so much! I completely forgot about the Pre-Candidate Questionnaires! So I do not have to complete one for the USAFA when I'm supposed to in March?

    Nope you do not. The SS application counts as the pre candidate questionnaire.
