    Last year they started sending out acceptances the equivalent of last friday (don't remember the exact date). So it really could come any day now. You'll hear by atleast the end of the month (f you applied early) Who knows, they could be out tomorrow.

    Additional Question

    Did the ALO interview you as the applicant for Summer Seminar? My son had a phone interview with his ALO middle of January.

    I don't think the ALO actually "interviews" for summer seminar, I think it's more of a way for them to get to know a potential candidate for the upcoming year.

    Well...actually, we have the option of interviewing a summer seminar candidate. It's a "sometimes yes, sometimes no" thing; totally up to the ALO. The AFA leaves it up to us; sometimes AFA will ask us to do them, and other years they've actually said: "Let the records stand on their own merits" and we didn't do interviews.

    Is it required? No. Will it make the difference? Not normally. The candidates record is THE thing the board looks at. If it finally came down to two people for one slot, my guess is that both ALO's would be asked for a recommendation.

    Yes, I had a phone interview with my ALO about a week ago. By her word it is looking pretty good for me. Now it's all up to the Academy.
