    Hello! :) I just joined this website, and I was hoping someone could give me some insight. I applied for this program on the 23rd of January and my application is "still under consideration". I know that they do not make all of their decisions until after applications are closed, but it burns me up when I see that people applied and got a decision a couple days afterwards! :confused:
    So did this happen to any previous attendees and am I just driving myself crazy for no reason? I would like to point out that I only have a PLAN score down, and maybe this has something to do with it? Ironically, I just took the ACT today.... But regardless, I would love to hear your thoughts!

    I served 10 years in the Military and there is one thing you have to memorize...."Hurry up and wait"... The military has it's way of doing things and some things never seem to make sense.. All I can tell you is to sit back.. think good thoughts and if it's meant to be.. it's meant to be... Don't get burned up over this. Every persons application or request or whatever, will have different outcomes and different time stamps applied to them.. You can't compare what happens to one person is suppose to happen to you.. Anyway,, good luck

    In your boat as well.. I applied Dec 15. I've gotten used to waiting. I'm still waiting for USNA, but USMA got back and accepted really quickly! Look at it this way: this waiting for SS is a total treat compared to the waiting we will have next year between A) applying for admission and nomination, b) waiting for a nomination, c) waiting for an appointment after getting nominated :thumb:.. but best of luck to you! I hope to see you there! :smile:

    Last year for Summer Seminar, I didn't find out I was accepted until March 24th. And I saw it first online, so there may still be quite the wait out there for some of you.

    I actually tried to apply for the USMA's program, but I hadn't taken the ACT in time and they refused to take my PLAN score :\ but it is what it is I suppose! And good luck to you as well! :)
    Thanks Ben! Makes me feel a little better, but still sorta anxious x)

    Haha that feeling is definitely mutual. I've been waiting for an appointment to USAFA since November/December, so be ready for the exact same thing next year :p .

    haleym,

    Four years ago my DS applied to both USAFA SS and NASS in late February, 2007. He did not hear anything from both academies until late March, 2007, he got accepted to both.

    Hang Tough,

    God Bless,

    No problem Triple. When you guys all get your notices that you made pm me, and I can share some cool stories from my time there. But don't worry I won't tell you everything (especially about doolie for a day ;) )


    and haley, I sure hope so! Best of luck to you!


    EDIT: Also, if you guys have any questions at all about Summer Seminar I'd be happy to answer them. I was in Session B last year.

    I am still waiting as well. I applied January 18th. I heard it is a long process for USAFA so I am trying to be as patient as I can.

    I got accepted last year for the summer seminar, and then attended it. I believe I completed mine right around the same time as you and I didn't hear until about March 20. Just keep on waiting, they'll tell you pretty soon.

    DS waitlisted

    Our DS's status just changed from "application under consideration" to "waitlisted -- you will be notified if a slot becomes available." He applied Dec. 1.

    Guess it's better than an outright rejection! He is going to NASS Session 3.
