    USAFA Class of 2024 Appointment Thread

    DD waiting along with you. Getting comfortable being uncomfortable. No word from USAFA. Time is running short. College planning is on "pause" at our house. So the break is nice.

    1 vs 2 Nominations

    Stealth, this is from Congressman Harris' Academy FAQ Page: "The Presidential nominations are for military service connected families, but it is also highly recommended to apply for a Presidential and Congressional nomination, as the President only awards approximately 100 nominations...

    1 vs 2 Nominations

    100 appointments can be charged, but every candidate who qualifies received a nomination.

    1 vs 2 Nominations

    Presidential nominations are automatic if a candidate qualifies.

    1 vs 2 Nominations

    At the NWL stage there is more latitude for academies to select a balanced class. If the top 150 WCS scores are females from states X, Y, and Z who play classical violin and goalie on the lacrosse team, I'm sure the academies would consider other factors besides WCS.

    1 vs 2 Nominations

    If this is the true philosophy, why wouldn't the academies discourage candidates with Presidential Nominations from applying for MOC and Senate? For example, "Presidential Nomination recipients, it is not at all necessary to apply for congressional or senate nominations because all you really...

    1 vs 2 Nominations

    In our state some MOCs communicate with senators and others do not. There is no uniformity. No. Not at the NWL stage. Your opinion. There is a reason why more nominations are desired by all and the academies encourage candidates to apply to every possible source. It's simple. More means more.

    Very sad news - Midshipman dies during PRT

    Very sad. I would want to look at his medical records and annual PRT screen to see if there were any problems immediately beforehand.

    1 vs 2 Nominations

    Maybe we could solve the multiple nominations debate from a practical standpoint. If we surveyed every candidate, parent, BGO, ALO, FFR, moderator, lurker, etc. on SAF, and the question was "if you had a choice on how many nominations to each service academy you or your candidate could receive...

    DOES have a better chance mathematically

    1 vs 2 Nominations

    but more noms = more chances to be appointed

    1 vs 2 Nominations

    Second sentence. "Moreover, multiple noms provides an advantage over those who have only one because there are more opportunities for appointment."

    1 vs 2 Nominations

    Maybe, but they have a better chance than a candidate with the same WCS who has 3, 2, or 1.
  17. Dadx4

    1 vs 2 Nominations

    Respectfully disagree with this. Allowing one candidate multiple noms disadvantages others who would have received those noms but instead received none. Moreover, multiple noms provides an advantage over those who have only one because there are more opportunities for appointment. And, although...

    TWE with No Portal Update?

    That is troubling that he was told so early that he wasn't competitive despite being qualified.
