    A few questions

    1. Is it alright if I haven't heard back yet? I know that they say that you will hear by April 15th, but I imagine if I was unqualified I would've already received a TWE. I'm new to this whole process so any insight into it is greatly appreciated. 2. Should I send them my midyear transcript if...

    Concerns regarding eligibility of non-citizens

    Good evening, today I started my application for USAFA. At the pre-candidate questionnaire it stated that you must be a US citizen to proceed. Previously, I thought that I just had to be a citizen prior to arriving at the academy. That being said, I can start my naturalization process October...

    How long does it take to know if you get in after you complete your Application?

    I have 3 nominations to USAFA and I finished my application today except my Liaison Officer Interview that I cannot schedule (has to be done by the academy my ALO said) and my DODMeds (couldn’t be completed until my application was sent). I was wondering what time frame should I be looking at to...

    Status: Noncompetitive Applicant

    I submitted my PCQ early, on 4/15, as soon as I received my ACT scores. I was supposed to take the SAT in early May, but then it was delayed to August, and now late September due to COVID-19 (I have not taken it previously as of yet). My initial USAFA application has been reviewed twice, on 4/17...

    Bad Situation: I'm Going to Reverse It.

    Rising senior; will be applying for VMI (my first choice) as well as other SMCs this year. I'm from Northern VA, D.C. suburbs. Here's the point: I've got a weighted GPA of 2.9 (2.5 unweighted) thanks to personal issues and a nasty case of teenage depression. I'm probably doomed, but I will not...

    College Student

    Hello all, I am a third-year community college student, still waiting to hear back from the Academy. I read somewhere that the admissions office reviews college students' applications last. Is that true? In addition, out of all the applicants, does the academy make sure to accept a certain...

    Question About Walk-on Athletes

    How common is it for athletes to participate in a Varsity sport here without being recruited? Additionally, do coaches allow for "team managers" and allow for students to participate in practices and, even if they're not first string? Also, are there any cases where a person may not make the...

    Can a visit to USMMA help boost my chances of admission/receiving an appointment?

    I am wondering if it is beneficial to my application if I can go visit now (and demonstrate showing an interest), or should I sit tight (and not miss school and take an expensive trip) and let the process play out. Thanks for any thoughts or advice!

    File completion

    Do you need everything on your portal overview to have green check marks next to them by the 31st or are the yellow arrows good as well? (I think yellow arrows mean sent in but not reviewed) Also does the DodMerb need to be completed by the 31st as well?

    Field Force Representatives Interview

    I have most of my application finished (All I have to do is record my push-ups) and I keep reading on these forums about a field force representative interview. However, on the application portal, there is no space where it says field force interview, all the other categories have a red 'x' by...

    Are CFA Standards the same throughout the Service Academies?

    When I went to the Naval Academy summer seminar I took a CFA and passed it. My naval academy application is finished and submitted. For my West Point Application I have the opportunity to request the CFA scores from the Naval Academy. Since I passed the CFA for the Naval Academy is that also a...

    Admissions Question

    I watched a USNA Admissions live stream and they said that the earlier you submit your application, the earlier the board will review it. What does this mean and how does the process work? If this is the case why do they take so long to deliver appointments?

    Question about LOA

    To receive an LOA do you need 100% of your application done (including BGO interview)? Also does already having a nomination boost your chances of getting an LOA?

    I still haven't received an email from DodMerb

    I emailed by BGO and he told me that I have finished 2/3s of the application and he said I should receive the DodMerb application soon. This was two weeks ago and I still have not recieve any such email, how much longer should I wait?
