Looks like 500+ of us have already been appointed to USMA.
When will the BFEs be mailed out and how long does it normally take for us to receive them?
Asking because family will be out of town for a couple days and I really don't want to miss out on that BFE after the dreaded wait...

So if they were mailed yesterday it could be today through Wednesday or Thursday. You might want someone to check you front porch for you while you are out of town as the BFE may not fit in the mailbox.

Has anyone thought to check USPS informed delivery? If they are sending Priority Mail and a label has been created, it will show under packages with a projected delivery date.

I check and only got 3 letters with one that’s got no image, hoping that’s the one

Actually go into the app or website and click on packages - will show you future packages if any
However under mail there’s “There’s a mail piece for which we do not currently have an image that is included in today’s mail”. For my prior experience, these mail are always the large, bulky ones. Fingers crossed for that BFE

USNA was Uber prompt with BFE— 5 days after portal changed; Usafa took 6 weeks but with USMA, it has been 7 weeks already— I suppose that are being efficient to send out in bulk!!!!!

When my DS received USAFA appointment, the mailing was trackable under USPS Informed Delivery. West Point may not use tracking with their BFE mailing though. In that case, it would just show up as a "letter without an image" but those come all the time, so there would be no way to know in advance.
