    The Applicant Handbook says that Early Action decisions will be in by January 15. Will they all come in on this date, or will some come in earlier? If so, does anyone know when decisions will start being announced?

    Waiting is so hard!

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    If you read back through last year's threads, you will see that admissions decisions will be released in waves - the first should be coming very soon.

    This year the admissions process has changed. The decisions will not be released until January 15th. No more waves!

    When we went to CFAD we were told by admissions that they believe it will all be released at one time on 1/15. The admission officer told me afterward they have a new Director of Admissions so the process is not set in stone but to plan on 1/15 and be surprised if you hear earlier.

    I can confirm this. I got back from the Genesis Invitational on Tuesday and was told that all EA decisions will be released at once on or before January 15th. There are about 500-600 EA applications this year, and they can appoint up to 45% of the incoming class through EA. Based on last year’s number of appointments offered, this is about 170 offers of appointments.

    Does anyone know if this also applies to applicants who received a LOA? I assumed my DS would have heard from admissions by now and we haven't .

    No one will hear early. All will hear January 15 for EA.

    It certainly is a test of being patient, isn't it? Just making sure the t's are crossed and i's are dotted with a LOA. And then having to wait some more. ..I know what you are going thru. We are in the same position.

    Thanks for all the feedback! I just got an email saying that my:

    "USCGA Application is Scheduled for Review. Your record has been scheduled for review in Early Action and will be forwarded to the Cadet Candidate Evaluation Board in the next two weeks."

    Has anyone else received this email, and is it a good/bad/neutral sign?

    Glad to see we are not alone! After reading my post, I realized I put DS, it should be DD! Hope to hear something soon!
