    USAFA Decision!

    I just received an LOA from USAFA today! I already got my nomination and passed the CFA but I'm still waiting on a medical waiver for a history of eczema. Does my chances of getting a waiver change/increase now that I have an LOA? I am super excited, however I've read on a couple online...

    LOA After Nomination Interview

    Hello all! I recently received an LOA to the USNA, and was wondering if I should let my MOC's offices know. My Representative already did his interviews through 3 panelists, which I went in for about 2 weeks ago (decisions should come out 2nd week of December). Would it be appropriate to reach...

    LoA Expiration

    I received my LoA to USMA about two months ago. As usual, the first paragraph included a notice that it would expire on a pre-determined date if I hadn't completed my file by then. I completed all remaining items, except for the CFA, which I had to postpone due to an injury. I missed the...

    CFA and LOA

    I received an LOA for West Point around a month ago, and am afraid I'm going to fail the CFA. I'm taking it this Thursday, and have to submit it by 10/15/23. If I send the results on the day I take it or very soon after, if I fail will my LOA be rescinded? I've heard it takes a while for them to...

    LoE Questions

    I recently received a LoE from West Point. I understand that this is a good sign for my odds of admission, and that it qualifies me for an overnight visit, but does not mean much else officially. I also know that I was probably one of the earlier from my class to receive such a letter, having...

    Sorry for the lengthy question, but a little background: I am a Class of 2027 applicant who has received two LOAs to USNA and USMA as well as noms to both from my local MOC. When the DODMERB site was up, the two waiver requests from both academies appeared for the same condition in early...

    USNA LOA Received, what does it really mean?

    Today I received an LOA (conditional appointment) from Navy’s admissions. When I looked at my applicant portal it appeared that I had unknowingly received a nomination as well. It appears that the only thing I need is to do my DoDMERB. Does an LOA guarantee me a full appointment given I am...

    USNA Letters of Assurance: Are They Out Yet?

    Does anyone know of any candidates who have received an LOA this early in the process? I was fortunate enough to receive one for West Point and just had my interview tonight for USNA, and I know that myself and a few others who got LOAs to West Point got theirs immediately after their...

    Can LOA be revoked based on CFA?

    Hello, I have recently received an LOA for USMA not too long ago, but still, something troubles me. So for context, I only have my statements, nomination, medical qualification, and CFA scores left on my application for me to input. The only part that I am slightly worried about is the CFA. I...

    Any chance of acceptance?

    Hello all, I have sent my application in and if I am honest, it is completely nerve-racking to me. I'm not sure if I can be accepted or not, but here are my stats and if anyone can give me a good read, it would be extremely helpful. I go to a very competitive private school outside of Annapolis...

    Conditional Appointment based on medical qualification

    I was given a LOA towards the beginning of February and I went on my USNA applicant portal and the only required action was medical qualification.

    Waiver with LOA

    Hey, I have a LOA to USMA, but I have to get a medical waiver. I know it's impossible to tell if a person is going to receive a waiver, but am I more likely to receive a waiver if I have a LOA? Or is it still possible that I'll be denied? Thanks.

    First Admissions Meeting/LOA

    Hey all, Does anyone know when the admissions board meets for the first time? I thought it was around August 1 but wasn't sure. And when will they send the first LOAs out? I was pretty motivated after NASS and completed my online app and am now just waiting for a nomination. Thank you!
