There's a problem that might prevent my friend's brother from applying to the AFA. He applied to the USNA as his first and AFA as his secondary nomination, but he can't do a long jump! He also says that the AFA aft/pft is much much worse than the USNA prt (which doesn't have pull ups, long jump or 600 yd sprint). He's also saying that he'll flunk out of BCT because of the altitude. Any help?
Sir, I am having great difficulty getting Navy Personnel Command to recognize that the DIEMS for service academy grads is the date we entered the service academy and not the date we graduated. Can you tell me where to find this in Title 10 USC?
DS is fairly far in both USNA and USAFA processes. This CFA was submitted to USNA because they allow for multiple submissions (i.e. they will take an improved score if you want to keep improving). Upon request by the candidate, they will share your CFA with the other SA. Our understanding is USAFA only allows one submission (or maybe a second chance if they want you). It was a formal CFA.
Did CFA recently with the following:
BB - 73
Pullups - 12
Shuttle - 8.6
Situps - 95
Pushups - 65
Mile - 7:07 (best time is 6:35)
Are the scores above worth submitting to the Air Force Academy? If you do it all again and get worse in other categories but a better mile time how do you decide which score to submit?
How important are recent standardized test scores on a LEAD Application? I last took them in 2016 (ACT eng-26, math- 28, read- 31, sci- 31) but decided to apply a little too late to retake confidently. I’m debating between applying this year and waiting until next year to put together a more complete package, but would appreciate ALO feedback.
My DS received nomination but just received TWE. We aren’t surprised but we were hoping for falcon or prep school. His plan b is to self prep. He is very interested in NWP. He has a 24 act which we assume was the largest factor in TWE. We are willing to take risk. He is contemplating joining reserves or air guard. Not sure if he could do that and NWP. Any advice
I would like to apply for the SLE 2019, but part 1 of the application requires me to answer the Candidate Questionnaire, which I can't do because it says it's for the class of 2023 only (I'm class of 2024). How can I apply for SLE when I am unable to complete the questionnaire on their website?
I have a question about he application.....I have my DS holding off a bit until he takes his second SAT. Can my DS put in the information and forward he application update it at anytime or should he wait?
Not sure if this is the avenue I need to pursue to have a post removed, but could you please remove my most recent post? I provided too much information in my post and I would like to have it removed. Sorry for the inconvenience.
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
recently finished online pre-candidate submission and was curious on the relationship between ALO and apllicant. Most say get to know them and make sure they know you, but what's the best way to do that? I already made some contact with my local ALO but I'm unsure how to proceed. Everytime I look up USAFA questions the best answers have been on this forum and answered by you, so here we go, thanks!
