    I submitted my application online and it showed this at first----

    Status: Applicant
    Application: Uncompetitive

    And then after a week----

    Status: Candidate*
    Application: Incomplete**

    I'm not sure if I still have a chance to get accepted because of having the uncompetitive status when I finished and sent my online application at first. Any thoughts?

    Looks like a vocabulary issue to me. Rather, you don't know what the words mean.

    Statis: Applicant: Same as about 12,000 others
    Status: Candidate: Same as about 6,000 others narrowed down from 12,000

    Application: uncompetitive: Basically, that means no chance in hell
    Application: Incomplete: Means you do have a chance in hell, but your application isn't completed yet.

    If you still have a problem understanding what this means, ask again. Basically..... your status and application are better NOW, than they were BEFORE. It's not complete yet, and as such, you can't get an appointment. But if you get it complete, you have a chance.

    VAN940724, hang in there. :) Spend time reading the forum, ask questions and more importantly, feel free to call the admissions person.

    I don't know what your portal says in comparison to DS's at USNA, but his portal listed all the items that required action and denoted the date when it was completed.

    Good luck.
