My daughter received hers 11/10, she received an email to check her portal.
I just spit hot tea onto my keyboard. Seriously, 'so well-rounded he's pointless' is one of the best lines I've ever heard. Thank you!!! I needed a laugh.His only real distinguishing characteristic, besides his Ferris Bueller personality, is he is so well rounded he's pointless.
It's easier said than done, but preparing to not hear anything until early spring is helpful. Some don't hear until later than that.I have to say it's cruel and unusual punishment for my DS to check every day before and after school. So far, no change in his status.
People have referred to that as a letter of interest. What does he have left? Several people on here have received an LOA after this letter.
Congratulations! Where did it show up on your portal?
Do they usually send out just one wave of LOAs or is it usually spread out a bit?From an ALO.
LOAs from USAFA are almost as rare as hen's teeth for "normal" candidates. USAFA, from my LONG experience as an ALO, doesn't give out anywhere near the LOAs that USNA/USMA do.
USAFA IS very free with LOAs for "blue chip athletes" though.
ALOs have gnashed their teeth about this for decades..we lose some really excellent candidates to the other SAs when they have LOA's, it's January, and they've heard nothing from USAFA and all their ALO can say is "approximately 80% +/- of appointments to USAFA are made in mid-March..."
And yes, admissions knows about this forum. We have admissions members in this forum. From time to time they will post here with important information for all to see.
