    I have fully completed my application but my medical exam on portal still reads NO ACTION? When can I expect to have an appt? Am I way behind on this?

    When admissions determines your file is competitive they will request the medical exam. If your portal has all green checks, including test scores, transcripts, etc, all you can do is wait and keep working on nominations. You could call/email your RC expressing your strong interest in USMA and inquire about the medical exam. You will normally get good feedback.

    Do you know if they will check an LOR that I uploaded? It was from a very high ranking officer and I'm hoping that it will help my application quite a bit.

    My understanding is that optional LORs are not indicated on the portal. You should contact your RC to see if it was received.

    Only the people in admissions know exactly when and how those wheels turn. Your test scores and transcripts will be probably be the primary factors in ordering the medical exam, assuming there is nothing disqualifying in the rest of the application.

    Act was 28 and gpa was 3.84 / 4.04 weighted but I've had a C and a C+ on my transcript. My rank was 32/349 or 25/349 weighted. FFR told me that my application was listed as "competitive", not sure if that is a pre-rank in their system. Just getting nervous as I know people have already been taking their medicals.

    No worries, just be patient. Things will happen when it happens. One thing that you learn in the military is the concept of "Hurry and Wait."
