A bunch of scenarios: -Can a LOA (Letter of Assurance) be sent out before a congressional nomination is received? -Because I am a freshman college, I must wait until the semester is complete to submit my semester transcripts, thus leaving a "red 'x'" on my portal. Can a LOA be received before I submit my end of semester transcript? Or is my application disregarded until the semester grades are finalized and submitted? -What percent of cadets receive a LOA? -Can a LOA before the DoDMERB is complete? (My eye exam is complete and physical appointment is the 23rd of November) Anything helps, thanks!
