    Dwindling appointments

    In the FB page, there are less than 500 members. So, no I don't think the class has been chosen yet! Best of luck.

    Torn between USAFA and USMA

    Thank you to all who have shared some input. I've found myself to lean more towards one compared to the other, and with some more researching, your help, and my upcoming visit I know I will be able to decide! Best of luck to all applicants and may you all get your desired appointments!

    Torn between USMA and USAFA

    So recently I've been informed of appointments to both USAFA and USMA. Currently, I am in a very hard decision as both institutions are amazing and I want to make sure I make the best choice for myself. I have visited USAFA through DVP where I went for 5 days and totally fell in love. For the...

    Preparing for BCT and Academy

    Can anyone share any advice and/or tips for appointees to help prepare for Basic and the academy? I am mostly asking on the physical aspect; what sort of training should we do to prepare ourselves? Any specific movements or training schedules? Also if there are any other tips in regards to...

    Is it possible to fail the CFA?

    I personally never failed so unfortunately I can't tell you. However, I would strongly recommend getting in touch with your ALO or counselor.

    Is it possible to fail the CFA?

    You CAN fail the CFA. They will notify you if you failed and will grant you a second attempt. If you don't get notified, it means you passed (can double check with counselor/ALO). However, keep in mind that the CFA plays part of your whole candidate score and it might help or hurt you in the...

    Visiting the academy?

    Just wanted to over emphasize how amazing DVP was for myself! It is a great experience where you will get to see the cadets in full go, you will get to ask questions, and most of all receive admissions help one-on-one with your counselors! This is not exactly advertised, but many DVP attendees...

    USAFA Summer Seminar Application

    Having been previously recruited for the Diveristy Visitation Program in September, I can confirm that the academy DOES actively seek out all opportunities to appoint minorities. For example, due to my ethnic and socio-economic background, I was flown out, given one on one counselor help, and...

    Appointment from non competitive district

    If I understand correctly, and you are truly the only one nominated on the slate, then YES you will get appointed if you are 3Q'd. I would recommend getting familiar with how your MOC's nominate (principal, ranked, unranked, etc) and even inquire on where your nomination stands. Most MOC...

    Class of 2019 Appointment Thread

    My son had VERY similar stats and no LOA. He was appointed to both WP and USAFA. If he completed the EA application he will hear something by Jan 15th. In any case, I believe your son has competitive stats and has cleared a giant hurdle by having a nomination. Now you just need to ensure he...

    He was flown to USAFA for DVP but never visited USMA. Financially we won't be able to fly him down there to see it. However, he is interested in a science career with focus on biology or chemistry. As a specific career he is not sure but knows he wants to pursue something such as medicine but...
