JLimmy: I was really hoping that I was reading your thread incorrectly and that we weren't really talking about the online application. But being we are; I really suggest that if you are still interested in the Air Force academy, that you go "Balls to the Wall" and get that online application completed. Not everything on there can be done "Online". e.g. transcripts, teacher's recommendations, etc... Some will take time. And time is something you are really running out of here. I assume you HAVEN'T even had an interview with your ALO. Especially considering you don't know who s/he is. Also, you haven't done your CFA (Candidate Fitness Assessment). Also, that you haven't gotten you medical physical done yet.
Log into your online application. It will state WHO is your ALO and WHO is your academy counselor is. If we are talking about the same thing here, then you really need to get a hold of your ALO and bust butt to get this accomplished. Because s/he hasn't heard from you, they probably think you are no longer interested. They see updates of your online application. If you didn't know it was there, then you obviously haven't done any of it.
Now, for the bright side. My son went to the Summer seminar in June 2007. As soon as that was completed, the online application process became available to start. My son started the ONLINE application, medical, interview with ALO, physical, essays, etc... on approximately June 15th 2007. He was 100% complete with EVERYTHING on the application on July 19th 2007. Just over 30 days. Status changed to complete and everything. Now, can you do all this in 30 days? I don't know. But his was the 1st application totally complete in the country that year. I only tell you this to show that you still have a chance. That you can get it done fast if you really want to. The fact that you have a nomination is actually good. That is one of the most difficult parts of the process. Familiarize yourself with the application, but your 1st priority is to get in contact with your ALO. Unfortunately, the online application is just going to show their email. Hopefully they will respond to you. You need that person in your life really bad right now. An ALO can't get a person a nomination, but they can definitely stop a person from getting a nomination with their interview and recommendation.
best of luck to you. I really hope I am wrong and that we are talking about 2 different things here. I'm really hoping that you've done your physical, ALO interview, had your school send transcripts and a school profile, had teachers do their letters of recommendations, did your CFA (Pullups, situps, run, basketball throw, etc...). I hope you did all these things and that I am just totally misunderstanding your post. Best of luck to you. Mike....
P.S. If I'm not wrong, and you haven't finished any of the application, just so you know; you can NOT be even considered for the academy unless your application is 100% complete. Your application won't even get reviewed until the computer spits it out as 100%. In other words, the academy doesn't even know you exist. Except if they look up your social security number. Then they can tell you what part of the application isn't finished and who your ALO is, and some personal data. Good luck to you.
