Last week I went back to previous appointment threads looking for the AOG's reporting in (3 years worth, I recall) and the AOG appointments seemed to be all over the place. One year, it looks like they heard along with the first wave, then another year towards the end of January, and there was one year where they seemed to know at the end of Feb/beginning of March! So I am not sure what to expect in terms of their timeline. I am sure they are all checking multiple times a day!it looks like it will still be awhile for most. Waiting is hard but it is part of the process. As of today the current AOG's have not heard anything yet and aside from recruited athletes and direct appointments they are usually the first to hear from admissions..
It really has nothing to do with how early you complete your packet, (it does not to be completed prior to an offer) and there are no real quotas. The process is driven by the types of nominations and how you can be slotted. This first wave you are seeing now are Presidential Nominations, Service Connected Nominations, LOA holders, and clear slate winners. These individuals have a nomination source to be slotted against and are ranked high enough on a slate to get an offer. More than half of the incoming class has an MOC nomination. Everyone nominated on that slate needs to complete their application and be evaluated before an offer is made. The application deadline is not for another six weeks so the majority of appointments occur after that.I think it mostly depends on when you got your packet complete. I'm not a direct appt or athlete and I got mine last week. One thing I read on a different thread is they are going to "build the class" over the next few months based on who accepts/declines, and what quotas they need to meet as well(athletes, prior service, etc.). Just stay positive, and stay focused on school!
This is really early in the BFEs getting sent out. I didn't receive my appointment till April. Good luck and have patience.Very early in the process, however, it feels like hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people are getting appointments. Waiting has been tough, but never thought it would be this bad.
It just depends where you are sitting on your slates and how strong your packet is. My DD received her notification in early February last year. She did not get the MOC spot as he had designated a principal again. Hang in there, I know you have been going through this for a long time.Does anyone have any experience with ROTC nominations? I’m curious when that slate is decided.
