Back to application.. did you apply EA or Regular. Any recs on that?
I applied EA and was medically disqualified shortly after. I received my waiver about six months after receiving my appointment.

EA is definitely the way to go, if you are a serious candidate the worst they can do is defer you (unless you had no shot), and they may give you advice on what to improve on.

Thanks Baseball Guy.. My DS did apply EA but will likely need a waiver. I am a little concerned he has not yet been contacted to initiate his DODMERB and he submitted his EA application all complete in early October. Wondering if that length of time is sign that he might not be a good EA candidate

Check spam for DODMERB info. Most mail servers like to send it there.

I would love to hear you experience with the interview. Any advice on that?

Lots of static holds, company runs, etc. It's not crazy but definitely challenging. I lost 30lbs. How about ya'lls?
30 lbs over Basic?? That seems like a lot for how long Basic is... I think 6 weeks

As a runner, I don't think I have 30 lbs to spare 😅

Do you think AIM has any affect on the application, i've heard it doesn't, but I was waitlisted and never pulled off unfortunately..

I completed AIM this past summer, and according to the admissions classes that we undertook, around half of the incoming class to CGA were former AIMsters (please correct me if I am wrong). Also, many of the AIM Cadre were prior AIMsters; in fact, 5 out of the 6 cadre for my platoon completed AIM. It is also a thing you are able to check off on the CGA application.

I got on the waitlist, but was never pulled off unfortunately. :/

I do not know how much weigh it carries in the admission process but I would say that it can help/hurt depending on your performance at AIM. I do know that my sons cadre for AIM did submit their review(s) of him for his folder (information from his AO).

I agree with this. My daughter's cadre said her evaluation would be added to her application information. In her case, their input only strengthened her application.

How do you know this strengthened the application?
Well....she already had a really strong application. But, during AIM, the cadre discuss how the AIMSTERs are doing. Her cadre told her she was one of the top. Based on his verbal feedback, I am assuming he wrote something similar in his evaluation. I do not know if she got to see the actual evaluation or not.

My DD is also a 25 and the interview she did during virtual AIM in 2020 was used as her Admissions interview. But there are plenty of people chosen each year that did not attend AIM just as there are a bunch of AIMsters not attending CGA. Keep your eye on the ball: work on the things you can touch, do your best and then go enjoy senior year.

And now back to your regularly scheduled 4C programming.
