    For Those Awaiting an Appointment/TWE

    @airforcemom All is not lost, it's only a new beginning. The destination can be the same under a different journey! AFROTC also offers an in-school scholarship at a long list of universities (don't think any prep schools though). Goes without saying your DS must be enrolled in that...

    For Those Awaiting an Appointment/TWE

    TWE for DS here in VA-04. Already accepted at ERAU Prescott on the Presidential Scholarship (merit based) for Astro/Aero Engineering. I asked several times if he wanted to switch to Daytona campus ;);), but he chose Prescott.... Unfortunately, he missed the national AFROTC scholarship...

    Do Not Dismiss The Liaison Officer Interview!

    I really enjoy reading your comments, and appreciate how much info you share. It is eye-opening and refreshing and at some points a little humbling. :groupwave:

    For Those Awaiting an Appointment/TWE

    @CB_Dad_5 Truth! Waiting is agony, but I'm thinking that it's harder for me than DS. As parents, we want our kids to have the most success possible and to reach their dreams. And if they don't get it, sometimes we hurt like it was us being rejected. DS knows that getting this far is an...

    USAFA Class of 2021 Appointments

    @sportsfan Noone can tell you what to do, but.... DS has accepted Plan B offer and we're rolling that way. Meaning setting up financial aid documents, but not signing any final loan docs or paying deposit till 15th passes. But even if you do all that and come May 1st you get a pleasant...

    NWL, how do you know

    @Christcorp DS received another email today from DODMERB (I'm losing count, think it's the 3rd or 4th in 2 weeks now), it says his DODMERB status has been changed and a letter issued. Check the status and it is unchanged, still says Qualified. Wonder if this is common to have frequent...

    NWL, how do you know

    Thanks Mike. It's making more sense now! And it all boils back to 'wait and see and plan for B!'

    NWL, how do you know

    Sorry if this is basic question, but how will a candidate know if they are on the NWL? Does you portal status change from Candidate/Complete to something else? thanks!

    USAFA Class of 2021 Appointments

    DS status still shows same Candidate / Complete, but he did have more activity by DODMREB again yesterday. This is the 4th email from them since mid Feb (and 2nd email in 2 weeks) that his status has been updated or changed and letter generated. Status still shows Qualified. Nothing in the...

    Appointments USAFA

    Congrats!!! DS keeps getting emails from DODMERB not a DQ but saying he's still a candidate. Not sure what to make of this, can only assume that you're still looking at him? Did anyone else get multiple emails from them, before getting the appointment email?

    Next wave of Appointments?

    Watching and waiting here too. DS spoke to admissions counselor on Friday. Was told that he should hear something in next week to 10 days. If not, then will hear something on April 15th. My interpretation is that another round of appointments (smaller than Mar 15th) will be coming, then after...

    Great forum

    Thanks Pima, Appreciate the words of wisdom and experience. DS is hopeful for appointment, but realistic. I fall somewhere on the far side. He has 2 solid plan B's, both top Astro-Engineering schools (his passion) and opportunity for AFROTC. He's on his way to a weekend long Robotics...

    Great forum

    Question about districts and allocations, specifically situation where the nominating MOC is no longer in office. And to further muddy the waters, the nominating MOC was VA4, but now we're in VA7 after district lines were changed last year after the nomination given. The portal shows he's in 4...

    Appointee Kits are now active

    New here, DS is waiting for news. Couple of questions to help my nerves please... Are all acceptances notified by call from MOC? What if the nominating MOC is no longer in office? Will other MOC call, or is the call skipped completely? Packet / letter comes before portal update? DS saw some...
