    The Application for the class of 2016 should open today. I have been waiting for this for years. Now I can be anxious for a whole other reason! As of 6:30 EST it is not open yet, but today should be the day...has anyone heard anything different? :yllol:

    Thank you so much, It is lunch period and I stopped by to check on the web page but it still wasn't available so I looked here on SAF and saw the link. THANKS Objee! I set up an account, but now have to go to Calculus. I'll be working on it tonight! :thumb:

    The site must be being updated. It still says:

    "The Class of 2015 (entering Summer 2011) application is closed.

    If you are interested in enrollment after Summer 2011, you cannot apply now, but you can request additional information. The Class of 2016 (entering Summer 2012) application will be available in September 2011 with a final deadline of February 1, 2012. You should also check out the Academy Introduction Mission (AIM) Program, a one-week summer program for juniors."

    Previous AIMsters Applying

    Does my son need to create a new account to apply or does he use the account (I assume) he established to apply to AIM earlier this year? Just trying to avoid confusion.

    Any previously created ApplyWeb account (400+ colleges currently use this application system) can be used for our Class of 2016 application...including ones created to apply for AIM 2011.

    What about for students who applied for 2015 and didn't get in. Do they have to start a new account, or will their old accounts work?

    Also, should they contact their admissions officer to get last year's information forward into this year's packet?

    This is the first year that we're using ApplyWeb, so old profiles that applicants used to access previous applications will not work.

    Yes...reapply applicants need to contact their Admissions Officer if they want previously submitted application material forwarded to their 2016 record.

    As my son found out today, not only can a previously created account be used...it seems that it MUST be used. It allowed him to create the account, but then wouldn't allow him to use it saying that he already had an account that was used for the AIM application. He was so excited to get going it never occurred to him that he could use the old account. As we speak he is in his room with the laptop filling out the application. :thumb:
