So I'm assuming that it means that they have a rolling applications opening...
I heard that this year will be a little bit slower in timing for the applications. This will be my third year applying and normally by now everything is open. But you will start to realize that this will be a LONG process, even if you turn everything in early and get it done ASAP, you could still have to wait until March to find out. LOA are not going to be as common this year, so be sure to do everything you can to make your package stronger! You will also realize that once you send something in to USAFA or any of the other academies, that it will take awhile for them to process it. Its a lot of waiting and it will continue to be a long process! But don't stress about it right now, they are just a little bit slower this year!
