    So is it fair to say that there was a wave of appointments today? Or just a few and the big one is still to come?

    As only a small percentage of candidates peruse this site, it would seem a significant amount of offers went out Thursday/Friday. Keep in mind the ones posting now are in districts where the MOC notifies their constituent of the appointment. Not all MOC's will notify, so there are more out there that received an appointment in the last two days but just don't know it yet. The Academy allows a few days for the MOC to call before they post the notice online. The portal will probably update next week for those that received offers this week.

    If you look at the Appointment threads for the last few years, RD appointments STARTED around the middle of March (As it appears happened this year) and rolled out fairly steady until early April. If this year follows suit, there should be plenty more coming in the following weeks. Good luck!

    I agree this was probably the first big wave. Typically in years past you would see about 10% of the appointments posted here. That would mean that they are only about halfway there.

    Good luck

    A little bird told me admissions will have a 'big push' next week.

    Even though it is a long shot, if I just have a JROTC nom, would my instructor be notified or would I have to wait for the portal to update.

    Most likely portal, in my opinion. I told my commanders that I was pretty sure they would know before me, but the portal updated before they were informed. I didn't agree with the way that turned out, but I was excited to see it on the portal. Either way, it will be a good day when applicants are informed they were appointed.

    I know appointments are going out...is it a "wave" or not, I can't say. I know I have some amazing candidates that have not heard anything so...who knows??

    ALO's are the LAST to hear...we rely on our candidates!!!

    Steve -- In your knowledgable opinion, do you think the candidates that are hearing now are the #1s off the slates, or is USAFA appointing out of the National Pool now? Any insight will be much appreciated !

    Two young men in our area, who don't seem to be on this forum, also received good news last Friday.

    Thanks so much. It helps a little bit...no phone call yet so DS is beginning to really worry. He has two nominations - one from a Senator that has already had someone appointed off his slate (saw it on the 2019 Appointment thread), and a second nomination from a MOC that is no longer in office. Can't wait for a portal update on Thursday in case the out-of-office MOC or successor isn't calling.

    Remember, lots of MOCs never call (though I wish they all did!)
    Hang in there!!!

    Thank you so much! It was a really neat feeling to be opening the BFE while I was dressed in AF blues (I had just gotten home from a Civil Air Patrol meeting)! I have my fingers crossed for USAFA as well, but really I am already so happy!
    I am praying that you get some good news from USAFA soon!!!! Who knows what Thursday will bring!?

    I am in the same boat onesooz! Although I was only nominated by my MOC, he is no longer in office. I have not received a call either, and am anxiously awaiting any news!! Good luck to you. I hope you hear something really soon!!

    I don't know for sure, but I have heard whispers that a lot of portals might be updated this week. Don't lose hope! I believe at least 50% of appointments have yet to go out...

    Check your email spam folders, too! Sometimes, really important things...like emails from MOC's...can end up there. I'm just sayin', it can happen! :D
