    Questions about "Instructions to Appointees"

    I don't even know why they use that sheet, I think just to get an estimate of how many of each sizes to order. You get remeasured for everything, so don't worry too much about size changes. Some kids didn't even turn it in...

    Re-Applying for Class of 2017

    I was in the same boat as you. I was rejected my first application, did ROTC for a year as an aerospace engineering major, and was accepted my second time. First, I would contact your admissions counselor and get the list of classes that the Academy wants to see college students taking. I can't...

    You'll probably get a call much sooner than your portal updates. But I can't blame you for checking every 15 minutes (One Fight, One Team) I did the same thing :biggrin:

    Optional LoRs

    Get them, get them, get them. Mail in with a cover sheet, and confirm they were received by admissions. I had an issue with that my first time. Get everything you can.

    Current Doolie here to answer any questions.

    When it comes to BCT, the one thing that got me through, far above anything else, was my teammates. Going through a beat session, you think "what the hell am I doing here?" You feel broke and tell yourself you want to leave. But then you look to your left and right and see the people next to you...

    Class of 2015 restricted

    Group 4 was never told that they were restricted. Group 2 was, but apparently their group staff told them it was our entire class. But it's all unclear.

    You shouldn't, simply because you can't on tests. Do your homework without them to be better prepared for tests.

    Evaluate my chances?

    Are you freakin' kidding me? :stretcher: Anyway, I don't think you'll get prep school with the college background and "low" GPA (and by low I mean high). Also, keep working through that CFA, never assume your scores will be good enough. It looks ok now, but strive to hit those maximums...
