    LOE/LOI and Medical

    Hello! I got an LOE from the Air Force Academy in mid-December that said a spot in the USAFA class of 2027 would be reserved for me provided I "meet all admissions requirements to include a qualified medical status." The letter continued to ask me to "submit all [of my] remaining admissions...

    Hello! I was just wondering how long it has typically taken to go from notification of appointment to receiving the BFE? I accepted my appointment around two weeks ago and have since been trying to avoid checking the mail almost as frequently as I checked my portal prior to receiving my offer...

    The Waiver process and Waiting Advice

    Just found out that my waiver was granted and that I am now medically qualified. This was the last thing that I needed to be "3Q". I admit that I was caught off guard when I saw the good news. Guess I had become used to opening the portal every week and seeing "Waiver requested". For any future...

    I just thought I would mention a few things about WAITING, based on what I have seen as a new user on the forum. This is a list of my opinions and observations, and I am trying my best to inject a little dry humor as I go. Unless you're an astronaut, you're not getting off this planet alive, so...
