    Questions about Windshield Tour

    The restaurant was called Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar if I remember correctly. We ate in the outdoor covered seating, it was chilly in December but they had heaters out! It was recommended to us by a friend from the CO Springs area, and it didn’t disappoint.

    Virtual Summer Seminar

    Hello everyone, I regret to inform you all that the USAFA admissions team just posted an alert on Instagram that says Summer seminar will be a virtual event this year. Sessions will be June 7-10 and June 14-17. I’m praying this changes, but it seems pretty official to me. I must say I can’t...

    Questions about Windshield Tour

    Coming from a student and a hopeful for the class of 2026, I would definitely recommend taking a windshield tour if you get the chance, ESPECIALLY if you have never been on campus or around the area. My family and I were able to tour around Christmas last year, and the tour was so much better...

    Already updated to Candidate Status

    I just got an email from USAFA Admissions that says my PCQ has been reviewed and approved, and I will move on to begin the candidate phase on July 1st. I was not expecting such a quick decision on my PCQ, I’m so excited! In the meantime, is there anything I should be doing other than pursuing...

    New Profile?

    Okay everyone, I have had some confusion just like some of you others, but I’ve just figured out how to open the PCQ in the new portal. DS/DD/You sign into your portal just as you would with summer seminar, then UNDERNEATH the SS application information on the bottom left side of the portal...

    New Profile?

    I thought the SS application was in the new portal already, I could be wrong though. Thank you for your help

    New Profile?

    Yes, I am having the same problem. When I enter my application portal that I used for SS, there doesn’t appear to be anywhere for me to begin a PCQ. Has anyone found out how to open the application for PCQ in their portal if they also applied to SS yet?

    Summer Seminar Application Question

    Hello, I turned in my application already and had the same problem with not having enough forms for all of my extracurriculars. I play 4 varsity sports as a captain along with other academic extracurriculars, so I faced the exact same issue as you did. I contacted the USAFA admissions team about...

    SAT essay

    Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew whether or not the Academy considers the SAT essay in their admissions process. I’ve taken the SAT 3 times between my sophomore and junior years (I’m currently a junior), and have a score of 1540 on my best SAT. However, I’ve only taken the SAT...

    Where to Start

    Hello everyone, I am a high school junior currently in my fall semester. The time is coming for me to begin my application process, and I was looking to get some firsthand feedback from others who have gone through the same process on where I should begin. I will be applying to summer seminar...

    CFA Results

    According to the academy admissions website, coaches are allowed to administer the CFA. “You are responsible for finding your own examiner and providing them with official instructions on how to set up and administer the test. Your physical education instructor or a coach are good options.”...

    SAT sub scores and AP

    Update: I just talked to my counselor, and it turns out that my school already has a program for Boys State set up! She was very excited because this is the first time that anyone has actively pursued a nomination. Thanks for the help everyone!

    SAT sub scores and AP

    Yes, that all is new to me. Like I said, I go to a small school, so it looks like this will be another thing for me to get in the works with my counselor and see if we can get a program started. Thanks for the feedback, I will absolutely let you know if I have any questions going forward!

    SAT sub scores and AP

    Thank you! I am already signed up for the November 7th SAT and have been working an hour of Khan Academy math every night. You are absolutely right about teaching the SAT club, I’ve learned just as much if not more by teaching my fellow students. The self promotion tip is great, I live in a...

    SAT sub scores and AP

    Thanks, I think I can improve my score, hopefully to around a 1500. I’m somewhat of a perfectionist to a fault, so it’s definitely important for me to take a step back and hear comments like this sometimes. Thank you for your time, I’m new to this forum so I hope to get even more information in...

    SAT sub scores and AP

    Thanks for the reply, I already have. Here’s a more rounded personal profile to give you a little bit of a better idea of myself overall: I am a 3 year varsity football, basketball, track/field and baseball player with captain in football, basketball, and baseball. I have 4.0 college-weighted...

    SAT sub scores and AP

    Hello, I’m a current high school junior with an SAT of 1420; math-670 reading-750. I know that the average SAT score is around a 1350, but I’m wondering if the subscores carry any weight in the overall value of a score (for instance, a 1420 with m-720 r-700 vs. a 1420 with m-670 r-750) since...
