    Injury very near r-day

    Hey guys, posting on here for some advice and input. I broke a pinky playing my sport, and have bot gotten it officially checked out in fear of complicating my just recently waived medical file. The opinions of multiple doctors off the record have been that there is shattering and loose bone in...

    USAFA, my chance at excellence

    I was recently appointed to the Academy from being a prior service Airman. I had always considered USAFA as a potential college since I was young in middle school, and had it up there with my dream schools. I was on target and then COVID came and knocked everything out of balance. My home life...

    Waiting for BFE

    I was recently appointed to the USAFA. I have not yet accepted because I received other appointments as well that I am considering. Will a BFE from USAFA come in the mail before I accept my offer?

    Appointee Events/ visits

    Does anyone happen to know if the appointees will be offered an "appointee visit" before they accept or do they have to accept the offer first? I am guessing this would be at your own expense, so the sooner we can get visit info the better.

    BFE/Checklist Before INDOC?

    Is a formal BFE to be sent out to all recent appointees? When is a formal appointment letter/notice received? How long does it normally take to arrive? Does it include a checklist of everything that needs to be done before INDOC? Or is some sort of official checklist online/reporting...

    Does USAFA Have a Wait List?

    Anyone know if the Academy has a wait list? I've realized that with the timeline of all the appointments being given out now, I'm definitely not even close to being their first choice. I'm starting to realize that I probably won't be accepted, but even so, it would be an honor to even be...

    Buying a Backpack

    I am a current Senior in high school, and next year I will be attending the Air Force Academy. I was wondering if I need to buy a backpack for the school year, or if I will be issued one once I start classes? Thanks!

    After receiving appointment

    I have recently accepted an appointment from USAFA. I am wondering what I am allowed to bring to the academy, I know I should get boots but can I bring running shoes or a running watch? Do you get to bring any over the counter meds, I know you have to pack light but I'm just curious what I'll be...

    Appointee Tour Dress Standard

    From past experience, what is the dress expectation for the appointee tours? Lots of walking involved, so I want to make sure I'm dressed to their standards, as well as accordingly with the events of the day.

    2020 Appointee Facebook

    DD requested to join the 2020 Appointee Facebook a few day ago, but has not received a reply. Is there something else she needs to do? This is the first time she has ever been on Facebook, so not sure of how the whole thing works. (Not her fault, we would not allow it until now).
