    I looked through all of the threads regarding LOAs but really couldn't find what they look like. Does it say directly on the letter that it is a Letter of Admission? I recieved a letter yesterday stating that the "Admissions Committee has reviewed your application and you have been found fully qualified. Although fully qualified, we have not yet recieved a nomination for you. No offer of admission is possible without a nomination."

    I don't believe this is a LOA, but rather a letter like the USNA stating I am scholasticaly qualified.

    Any help would be much appreciated!! Thanks.

    Drumsrock,

    My son's LoA is from July (so I don't know if more recent LoAs are different, but I suspect they are the same). It starts off by saying:

    "Congratulations! The Admissions Committee has recommended you for an appointment to the United States Military Academy. Accordingly I have reserved a cadetship for you contingent upon.........You must send the Admissions Office your..........or this letter of assurance will be withdrawn. When these matters are resolved, you will be appointed a member of the USMA Class of 2014........."

    Hope this helps. Best of luck to you!!!

    Which academy did you apply to? I believe LOAs from all the SAs differ in their wording. I swapped LOAs with a friend who also got an LOA from the USAFA and they were very different

    My son has LoAs from 3 of the SAs, they are all different. The only one that actually says "Letter of Assurance" is the one form USMA.
