If all of my paperwork is in, and the Admissions Director for Great Lakes said he was taking my file to the board soon, what would be a general timeframe of when I'll hear back from the Academy? I already have a nomination for ROTC Honor Unit.

How long does it take the board to make a decision?
I am pretty sure your AO won't send your file to the board unless you are qualified in all areas and you have a nomination. For your file to go this early is surely a good sign.

It is rolling admissions - if your file is complete and you have a nomination you should hear fairly soon.
If I were you I would send your AO an email or call him the end of the week and ask him.
Good Luck!

I'm not sure if the process is still the same, but the Admissions Board would meet on Tuesdays. Then it would take about 2 weeks before receiving the appointment offer in the mail.

Stare at your mailbox a lot. It's supposed to help.:thumb: Good luck!!
