    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?

    Awaiting USAFA Response... still

    Hello, I currently have a fully qualified appointment at USNA. I was notified of this around a month ago and assumed that USAFA would be close behind. I still have yet to hear anything back.

    Can Falcon Foundation Scholars still gain an appointment this year?

    I’m a USAFA class 26’ applicant and this is my first time creating a thread on this forum.

    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...

    SATs/ACTs in California

    Any recommendations on when to register for SATs/ACTs? Due to the fact that UCs/CSUs aren't requiring scores, my school isn't offering insight on any testing this year. I'm a junior, and I need all the help I can get. As of right now, I´m considering registering at another testing site, but I'm...
