Are January and February biggest BFE months?

    I have read many posts and have seen conflicting information. Is it true that January and February are the months when most BFEs go out?

    Here's my logic:
    All noms MOC given out are due to the Academy by Jan 31- known fact.

    Principal nominees get the first shot of receiving the appointment once found qualified by the academy. That would be several hundred. The x number of people with LOA's and a nom will also receive appointments (LOA's are supposedly rare but based on various Facebook groups of dedicated applicants, they do not seem that rare).

    Therefore, a good proportion of applicants get appointments in Jan-Feb. Despite having a nom and LOA, I am still waiting for the BFE.

    As for the qualified applicants with noms, they fill in the slots after principal noms and LOA'ed people. Those probably hear back in March-April.

    February and March.

    That said, some do get BFEs in April and, for those on the wait list and end up receiving an appointment, well after that.

    Thank you very much. I will be sure to shovel the snow from around the mailbox during those time frames :)
