    Good afternoon everyone! I just accepted my appointment to USAFA, class of 2022. I was wondering if the Academy still sends physical appointment packets to accepted appointees similar to how colleges send promotional info with an acceptance letter. I have read that they did it in years past, but with money constraints I was wondering if they still do it. Thanks!!

    Congrats! That's exciting! My DS is still awaiting that day to come. Did you receive an email ? I would guess snail mail would follow soon after.

    I received an email and an update on my application portal. I didn't receive any snail mail when I got my LOA, and haven't yet for the appointment (which I got on 1/16/18). It seems as if they've gone all electronic at this point (based on my experiences).

    All informational correspondence is done electronically. Later on your ALO should have an official certificate in a sort of frame that they either give you or present to you at a school awards ceremony, depending on the situation.

    Okay, hopefully my ALO gets that and is able to present that to me. Thanks for the info!

    What's not to like! Make sure you eat a lot of pizza & bagels before you go...they're not Colorado's strongest suit!

    That's exactly what I plan to do. Every day bagels for breakfast, and pizza for lunch and dinner (jk, maybe if my metabolism was god-like lol)

    PM me if you want when you have enough posts. I tried to but it wouldn't go through.

    It takes a few hours for the system to see that you have.
