    Hi, applying for class of 2015 at usna, i have not gotten my medical or physical fitness test done yet. Is it too late to do them (and have the best chance for evaluation), or I am just being paranoid, thinking every spot is taken?

    Dont count chickens before they hatch. Granted, it is extremely competitive, but fact is, you'll be late if you dont stop asking whether or not you are :thumb:
    Find your local BGO, and see if it truly is too late. And I'd suggest starting DoDMERB tonight, and telling your recommender that they'll have to recommend you tomorrow, so they could do the forms over the weekend.

    You still have plenty of time , March 1 2011 is the last day to submit the application.

    The admissions website says that usually no further files will be looked at after March 1st for the year of admission. You still have time to get everything done. Just make sure you are prepared for your CFA and try to get everything in quickly.

    No, it is not too late. But...you need to get these items completed ASAP. CFA would be the first thing I knocked off and get the DoDMERB process going (this is something that can really hold off a full appointment).

    And don't forget the deadlines for applying for a nomination. If you miss that deadline you will be out of the running for an appointment. Check those websites to know this year's deadline for applying.

    Admissions will request DoDMERB complete the medical only after you have completed over 50% of the application package. If you have done so, you should have heard from them. If not, complete at least 50% ASAP to get the DoDMERB process started.

    RUN, do not walk, to your MOCs websites to determine their cutoff dates for nominations (they vary by MOC). You DO NOT want to miss those. If you have missed one or more, call them, explain your situation, and ask if they're still accepting applications. MOCs in some less populated states might extent deadlines.

    You have plenty of time for USNA. Many candidates don't complete their packets until Dec or Jan.
