    DS just received in mail a 2016 USAFA calendar. Nothing else in envelope, just a wall calendar. Is this something they always do? DS has a nom for USAFA and application is completed recently. I did a search but came up with nothing. Just curious.

    Oh god the calendars...not again

    The next month or so will now be filled with "my child didn't get a calendar but is triple Qd, does this mean they're not as competitive?"

    Long story short, the calendars don't mean much. And are in no way indicative of how competitive the applicant is. Sorry if this seems a tad rude (not my intention =) ) but it was a big deal last year.

    Not rude at all! I am a fan of blunt. :) just strange to pay first class postage sending out calendars. At least now some other candidate will find their answer if they search. Thanks!

    The calendars don't mean anything whatsoever as far as I know, but I will admit it was a little disappointing for me last year when I received an envelope of that size from USAFA, only to open it and find...a calendar. Good luck everybody and remember that a real envelope will come eventually! :thumb:

    I believe the calendars are actually sent out by the AOG, not admissions. Just like everyone said, doesn't mean anything.

    Last year the calendar was the only thing that we received by snail mail after my DD's appointment.

    That TWE people expect? It doesn't exist anymore. USAFA has gone digital and your DS will get an email telling him to check his portal. All of the forms from vaccines to list of what to take will be online. Some forms you will have to print out and have it fill out while some others you fill online.

    Life will go on at our house as the academy does its thing! Fingers crossed for positive news whenever that may be. Thanks for the info, all.

    Should I be expecting a BFE since I received my appointment? Or is all of that done online too?

    As already stated, there is no BFE or TWE. All notifications will occur via the portal.

    The Calendars are part of the Future Falcons program. My brother just got one (he was hoping it was an acceptance packet for Summer Seminar).
