    Application is complete as well - I'm thinking that Enlisted Airman are not going to find out til Jan - March (Direct Appointment) or Feb - April (Prep School Appointment).

    It is all a waiting game if you have completed you application.

    Both? I'm a female so I'm sure my CFA will be different.

    I'm about to take my CFA this week and then my application will be complete. I still haven't been interviewed, I assume I will get a notification about it after I finish my CFA? I asked Counselor and she said that I will be notified about it 1-3 weeks after I submit everything on the portal. How long did it take everybody to get a interview setup?

    I did my interview before my CFA, the contact information was up on the portal after I had completed all of my forms under the ALO listed as evaluator. So I sent the evaluator an email introducing myself and asking when they would like to schedule the interview for. Mine was conducted over a phonecall, but they also do Skype or FaceTime.

    Any tips for the interview? What kind of questions do they ask?

    Just be yourself and don't try to BS the interviewer. Be prepared to talk about the core values as well as examples of you in a leadership role.

    Hey!

    I am a prior enlisted, who is currently at the USAFA Prep School.

    If you have any questions about the process or about anything USAFA related let me know!

    That looks really good! You did better on most events than your practice runs. Good luck on getting the 1376 form signed, make copies so whoever needs one in the process (MPF, supervisor, etc.) can have one but not the original.

    My interview didn't open up until everything was completed. Just keep refreshing the portal everyday and there should be a new name to email at the top of the page.

    Thanks, I got lucky because we have a new Lt who is a certified personal trainer who helped me out. I have the 1786 and have sent a copy of that in, but I am still waiting on his letter which I have been keeping on him about, he told me that he will submit by Friday which is before I go on leave for the holidays so I am not calling back to check in while on leave.

    So does anyone know that if you get denied a appointment directly to USAFA but accepted to USAFAPS that they send two separated letters? Like if you got a unaccepted letter to USAFA will you get a follow up acceptance letter to USAFAPS? Or will they only send you the acceptance letter to USAFAPS?
