Greetings! I'm active duty and I submitted the pre-candidate questionnaire. Do applicants complete/submit the AF Form 1786 AFTER they've been notified that they've been approved to go into the candidate phase or is it required that the member turns in the form BEFORE they find out their status? Does the same thing apply for congressional nominations? What's the estimated time frame for applicants to find out if they've been selected to move on to the next step? Thanks for your help!
