    Submission Date

    Hello All, I'm a prospective applicant into the class of 2027 for USAFA, I haven't submit my main application yet (I've submitted all of my nominations), and I was wondering if I missed the prime time to submit my application. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    So I had a quick question about the vice-presidential nomination and I wondered if anyone knew a bit about it. I am living in Canada currently, but I am an American citizen, is there any way I can use my parent's past residency as a location to apply for a congressional nomination, or does it...

    USAFA Competitiveness

    I have read some other candidates academic scores and I am nowhere near them. I also have seen that some of them have rejected. My ACT superscore is 28 and I have a 3.62 gpa with advanced, and college classes. Am I still considered competitive academic wise?

    Are spaces counted in the character count for the USAFA application?

    I have formatted the activities resume for the application in bullet points, but I can't tell if that will mean all the empty spaces will count or not. Does anyone know for sure? I looked back through the forum, but couldn't see a recent post on the subject. Thanks so much!

The kid is as smart as a whip, but PSAT is not the test for him. From all the research we have done ACT will be a better match to his skills, and he is...
