    Hi all, the scholars handbook states application into program is due April 1st. How would my DD apply in time if she doesn't receive an offer to attend by April 1st? Any help would be appreciated. I wish you all the very best!

    Applicants don't apply to CGAS. The admissions committee can offer a CGAS appointment instead of direct appointment to the academy if they feel the student is otherwise qualified but needs an additional year of prep. You'll get a deadline to respond to the CGAS appointment when you are notified.

    The handbook may have an incorrect/outdated deadline since some applicants won't even know they've been appointed to the CGAS Program until April 1st and then all conditional appointees will have until May 15th to become medically qualified or receive a medical waiver for any disqualifying condition(s).
