    I actually got word back yesterday, and it was from the CC. She got an email from the Academy telling her that she could congratulate me before the portal is updated.

    I am curious about your username. Are you vegan? If so, do you plan on staying vegan if you go to the Academy?

    If I made a crazy guess I would say he's about as much of a vaping vegan crossfitter as I am a Tactical Turtle.

    Just checked my portal and it’s updated now. Got an email early this morning from USAFA so that’s when it updated.

    Congrats & think about getting the vegetarian card for meals at Mitch's. It's nice to have options...

    No word yet for me. All of this waiting is making me anxious. Any new updates with you guys?

    I'm applying through the LEAD program as well. I called my counselor to check on something and he mentioned they will be looking at enlisted applicants soon. However, if you are competitive for direct entry, you will most likely be looked at with everyone else.

    I certainly hope "soon" is when all of us will get our notifications. Seeing other prior enlisted members get their notifications already is a little disheartening.

    Spoke to a counselor about any updates on release dates and that's what they told me :)

    Makes sense! I hope we all know what the outcomes are by that time - Direct or Prep. At this point, I think we all just want to hear a "Yes" or "No".

    The wait to me is much worse than putting the application together

    As an aside, my DS commented on the positive impact that prior had on his BCT squadron. I salute your current service and fortitude. Hang in there...

    Still waiting! It Is my understanding that admissions hasn't begun reviewing airmen for USAFAPS Appointments yet. They hope to have the entire process completed by April 15th, per a USAFA counselor.
