    Advice from a C4C

    Very true what @kinnem said. They're two totally different experiences. I have a good friend at West Point and he loves it, and I enjoy USAFA. Just do as much research as you can and if you get an opportunity to tour, jump on it. My USAFA tour sealed the deal post appointment.

    Portal Access Down?

    It all depends. I got a call the day prior to a portal update. Some MOC are very busy and don't have time to call. I've heard of many people not receiving phone calls and just the portal updating. There is no definite yes or no. That's the nature of this stressful period of the application...

    No test scores

    Well, just make sure you keep your head up. If you have submitted your precandidate questionnaire you won't be promoted to candidate until summer-ish. The thing that had me the most nervous about my application was my SAT scores (I got an 1190). But the best advice I got was to take it at least...

    Best of luck to anyone taking the SAT today, I'm taking it for the 3rd time to hopefully raise my score. I know that this score won't post for the class of 2021 application but just in case this year doesn't work, I'm ready for next. Have a great day all!

    How did you find out?

    Hi All, Quick question how did you find out about your appointment, did you get an email saying your portal updated first, or did your portal update and you did not get an email? I check my portal nearly every day with fingers crossed and just want to be able to ease my mind. Thanks!

    Funny story. I didn't get my mail yesterday and when I opened my mailbox this morning I noticed a larger envelope from my congressman and immediately thought of this thread. My heart started beating quickly and I got nervous but when I opened it up... I just had to laugh at myself. It was just a...
