    Hi, I'm new here, my application has been going well so far. As of today, I've completed everything on my portal, but my counselor has yet to send in any of the necessary information such as a transcript, school profile, etc. Is it possible to receive any notice from the academy such as LOA before this step is completed? thanks

    I have seen some people report here that they’ve received an LOA before their transcripts were submitted. But maybe give a gentle reminder to your counselor if you can.

    Thanks for your response! I’ve been reminding my counselor relentlessly, hopefully he’ll pull through soon

    LOAs are rare for USAFA. I would keep pushing forward with nominations and forget about the LOA issue.

    Although I do not know the size of your HS, but remember many other students are asking for the same thing right now. I know for my kids at their HS they were told it would take 2 weeks to process their transcripts and school profile.

    LOAs (Letters of Assurance) are rare. Your full file must be complete and reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Less that 10% of all candidates will receive a LOA. 90% have to wait until late March or early April to know if they have been offered.

    Work on your nomination. Without this you go nowhere. Don't be annoying to your counselor. Be funny, charming, polite and "give chocolate".
