    Thank you for your insights. My DS submitted his pre-application a little over a week ago. His status changed to "applicant" the next day. Do you know roughly how long it takes to progress to candidate status so he can start his application? Meanwhile, he's working on his nominations. Thx

      Hi!

      The applicant to candidate will be decided when they have looked at his package...if they think it's something they're really interested in, they'll "flip the switch" otherwise he'll have to wait like most folks, until he has a nomination. Nothing to worry about at this time.

      Are his numbers good?? SAT/ACT, GPA, etc??

    @jefelazo Not necessarily. Before you route it up, let your supervision know you're interested in USAFA and talk to your commander.

    Hello, I was wondering what you wanted to do in the CG that was transferrable to your desire to go into the Army?

    @jefelazo You have to route up through your chain of command. Give it your supervisor, they will help you out.

      Thank you Sir. Do I have to wait until I become a "Candidate"? before routing it up?

    Hey man, I'm also applying for LEAD Program, I just sent my PCQ and I was wondering what is my next step aside from up-channeling the Form 1786? And when they say through your chain of command, do I turn it in to my supervisor, then they send it to the Commander? Saw some of your posts, I figured to ask the guy in the same process as me haha. Thank you very much!

      I already took the act in June and got a 27 overall but I wen into it completely blind because I was taking it so early. I have a 4.226 GPA and I went to Summer STEM this year. I also intend to apply for NASS and join the sea cadets. Lastly, I am in student council and I am an ambassador at my school. Any advice would be appreciated

    Sir, have a few questions in branching into MSC from ROTC esp. to 70D or 70B? I can't seem to pm you from your page, so if you can reach out to me I would appreciate it. Thank you.
