    Have anyone heard about or got appointed to the prep school yet? Im not giving up just yet, but I'm just wondering if they already started offering prep appointments.

    Hang in there! If I recall correctly, the bulk of the prep appointments come out after the direct appointments.

    DD got an appointment to the Prep back in December. I know some of the people who were invited to the DVP with her got the appointment as well. She did say that she felt that the board specifically looked at applications of people who were there.

    Did you get anything else from them? I know NAPS has already requested birth certificates and other docs, but we haven't gotten anything. What about you?

    By any chance did you apply for EA and have a Pres nomination? Did you get a decision on direct appointment as well?

    DD got her appointment back in December. She applied for EA and didn't have a nomination back then. She was invited to the DVP and she said that quite a few of the people there had their applications reviewed while they were there.

    No, I still haven't received any more information after accepting the appointment. I figure we'll hear more after they finish giving out direct appointments.

    Yes, I did apply for early action but when I received the appointment I didn't have any nominations. I ended up not receiving my nomination from my district because I was accepted to the Prep school and they don't require one. I didn't get a decision on direct appointment, just a straight offer to the prep school.

    You and DD went through the same path. I'm sure you are as excited as she is. She said that the Prep was wonderful when she visited. I wish you lots of luck there.

    It is definitely not a wasted year. The friendships that you will make and the academic foundation that you will build are awesome.

    Good luck and have fun!

    Does anyone know when all candidates for USAFA will be notified of their final status? DS is a candidate but did not recieve a nomination. Is he eligible for Prep?

    If he did not receive a nomination there could be a chance for the prep school but not the Academy. You could possibly find out about a chance for the prep school as late as June however, most are given out April-may.

    Have there been any new prep school appointments? I thought we might hear of some this week but it's been very quiet.
