    How likely am I get an AFROTC scholarship?

    This fall I will be a high school senior. I am not particularly concerned about my academics, I am a little concerned about my fitness, and I am very concerned about my leadership experience. I have a 1410 on the SAT, although I am scheduled to take it again in September and I have gotten...

    Updating Submitted Application

    It seems to be best practice to submit applications as early as possible to maximize chances of acceptance - say I submit with my current SAT scores, can I later update the same application with my senior Fall score?

    What should I do?

    I was notified that I did not receive an appointment from USAFA. I'll be honest, I was very disappointed. This is due to me not being able to "receive my waiver". BUT here is the problem/question I have. I was notified that my waiver should be processed within 15 business days back in...

    CGAS/Application Question/Help

    First off, some backstory. Last year, I applied to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. I ended up on the waitlist for CGAS. I never got off the waitlist, and in reality I'm very lucky that I was not outright rejected as I had no medical on file (I was in a tough spot and chose to enlist ASAP instead...

    USCGA Medical/Application Question

    Is it normal for this academy in particular to first view applicants/candidates applications first, then decide if they want to pursue certain applicants and sub-sequentially want to look at the candidate's medical DoDMERB status? It seems like other academies look at medical status while...

    Application Question

    How long does it generally take for the Medical status to show up on the USMMA application portal after a decision from DODMERB? i.e. DoDMERB shows a status such as "Qualified"-- When would USMMA acknowledge this on the application portal?

    Will my grades hurt my application?

    Just got my finals for the semester back and although they are not terrible, they are not particularly great. The question of whether or not my grades are going to hurt my application has always tormented me, so I figured I would ask a more educated audience. Here is a bite size bit of what my...

    Enlisted to West Point

    I am looking for some insight from Soldier applicants who gained direct admission to USMA. Some background: I had an unimpressive ACT score (28), HS GPA and class rank (3.4, probably around the 50 percentile class rank). Enlisted in the Army NG, flipped the switch and started crushing my...

    Other Applicants from my High School

    There's another person from my high school applying to the AFA, same year as me. He's basically a shoe-in though, as both his parents are AFA Alumni, and he had good grades, etc.. I, however, don't have parents in the Air Force; does this automatically mean I won't get accepted? I also have good...

    Double majors

    How would doubling majors affect daily life at AFA? It would require taking extra classes, and would make me busier between that and regular training, correct? Is it manageable, or is it something rarely done by AFA cadets?

    What does it take to qualify for an LOA?

    What does one need in order to receive an LOA? I know FF interviews may be a new requirement. Also, can someone still receive an LOA if they completed their entire application(including nomination)?

    Hello, I am currently applying to USMA, USNA, and USAFA for the class of 2024. In the CFA portion of USMA's application portal, it says that if I have already taken the test, I can request the scores from either USNA or USAFA. Does this mean that I can do the CFA for USNA or USAFA, and then...

    How much does gpa matter if there's no class rank?

    Hi all, So my high school doesn't have class ranks (the entire school district doesn't use them). How much does my GPA matter because of this? My GPA isn't that great (3.6 weighted) but I took the hardest classes at my high school (ie calc BC) and did well on standardized tests such as the APs...

    Are Nomination Apps Rolling?

    So I know that many of the nomination apps open at different times, mine range from September 27 to November 8th, but is sooner better? As I understand it it doesn't matter when you submit it because the nomination sources have their own committees that look at all the apps after the deadline...
