    Don't worry if this year is like previous years starting Thursday/Friday the board will start lighting up either way. Typically, the spigot started flowing the 1st week of March.

    It would be nice to breathe again and know what is happening in the future finally!

    My fingernails are in the same condition! It sounds like I can't wait until Thursday/Friday then, like many, the waiting is killing me and even though I'm lined up for an NROTC scholarship (waiting on AFROTC still), I'm really anxious about the academies' decision.

    Question though, I'm checking my portal religiously 3+ times a day out of paranoia, can it only update at certain times and on certain days?

    I was wondering the same. My WP appointment came a few days before the portal updated, so is USAFA the same way?

    FWIW,

    DS never had an update to his Portal without an email coming first. When the Portal was checked, the info posted was dated the date it was actually done, which was about a week before it was Posted. Again, FWIW, and may not be the same experience for all others at all times. Best of luck!

    I'll admit, in this way, we had it easier in the old days.

    No email, no internet, no portal.

    Everything in those days traveled by snail mail, and you were used to waiting quite a bit of time for anything.

    I recommend ignore this part of life and get on with enjoying the rest of it...while you can....

    According to last years appointment thread, the VAST majority of appointments came out March 13-18, which would be about next week. Needless to say my fingers are crossed, as I'm sure many are.

    I spoke to my admissions counselor today about an unrelated topic, but she did mention that "the majority of appointments will go out the latter half of March."

    Does anyone know if we can expect the mass mailings of appointment to happen before the academy is on spring break? (March 21-31) I remember reading that the admissions counsel doesn't meet during spring break and am patiently hoping we all get to hear before the academies spring break.

    Regular Selections have been made and are waiting on approval. We know, it's a long process and the suspense is killing us too. That said, most letters should be sent out by the first week of April. Hope this helps and Good Luck!

    Also, what does the FB page mean by the selections have to be approved?

    I can't find this on the admissions or academy FB page. Is there another page?

    It is a reply to a question on the admissions page.

    From the Facebook page: "although selections are ongoing, please note it takes time before students are notified. Allow up to a month to receive your notification."
