    Greystone Self prep., vs other self-preps

    From my knowledge of Greystone, they have only been at 2 different universities since their existence. Curious why you say they "move like the wind".

    Updated Portal...What does this mean?

    I've heard from a few that have gotten e-mails and a few that haven't. No rhyme or reason from what I can see. Nothing like having to keep waiting when you know a decision has been made. Maybe check your spam if you haven't yet.

    Updated Portal...What does this mean?

    Have you clicked on "Review"? I would think that's where the decision would be.

    Portal Update Question

    Last week my DS's portal had a few changes take place (X's to checks, etc). Since then we have noticed a "Last Updated XX/XX/XXXX (insert time)" a few times each day. Is this an automatic thing that just takes place in the system periodically throughout the day, or does that mean they could be...

    Questions, Chatter, Congrats for the 2026 USAFA Appointment Thread

    My DS is a college re-applicant and current Prepper. This wait is all too familiar and seems to be even more stressful than last year. He has solid Plans B & C in place, which are both great options, but USAFA is his #1 goal so hopefully those appointments roll in soon. Good luck to all hopefuls!

    USAFA Preferred Prep School?

    I asked this on the USAFA thread, but haven't had any responses. I'm aware that there may not be an answer so that could be why. 😂 Does anyone know if USAFA has a "preferred" prep school for self-sponsored re-applicants? It seems like USMA & USMMA do, so I'm curious about USAFA.

    Im sure this is a dumb question but how do the private military colleges work

    If you don't mind answering, I have a question. My son received a USAFA TWE. Right now he is torn between Plan B - self-admit to a prep school (Greystone possibly) or move forward with Texas A&M as an engineering major and Corps member. His plan is to reapply to SA's next year. As an A&M...

    Waiting Game

    :bump8ls: Just felt like this needed a bump since there are so many posts in the 2025 Appointment thread that have a better place to be than there.

    Boys State Equivalent?

    How did I not even think to look that up? 😂 I wish the answer to all of my questions was this easy. Thanks!

    Boys State Equivalent?

    This may seem like a silly question but is there an equivalent to Boys State for females? Mostly in regards to how SA's view it on applications, but also in lines with the program.

    Can I get in??

    Letter of Assurance Make sure to check the acronym list for anything you are unsure of. It's a big help because these forums are full of acronyms.

    Waiting Game

    Are the portals updated overnight and not randomly throughout the day? Meaning, if we check at 8 a.m., do we need to not check until the following day or is there a chance it could update at any point throughout the day? In talking with other appointees in our district our MOC doesn't tend to...

    Acceptance at non-SA

    Several good points and some great discussion made in that post!

    Acceptance at non-SA

    These are the things that make us nervous, and could be part of what we originally saw. We were originally going to wait until May 1 to see if he receives a SA appointment, but campus housing has become a concern. It's a very large campus and the "better" housing options fill up fast.
