    I am hearing they are setting up tours for appointees only in April. Has anyone else heard this? I realize some have toured already but if tours are available for appointees only then maybe more information maybe provided.

    Grandson had not toured the Academy and had heard the same thing. He called and was told that there will be a tour for appointees but they did not give a date--said it would be posted soon on the website. He was hoping to decide sooner than April and so scheduled the normal tour next Thursday.

    The applicant did not receive an LOA.
    The term “direct appointment” is not official, but is generally taken to mean they are being appointed right out of HS, without going to MAPS or other prep. The shortest route.

    NO LOA = did not receive a Letter of Assurance; DIRECT APPOINTMENT - going straight from high school

    It's not an either-or. Some high school direct appointees who were exceptional in some way were given a Letter of Assurance. Most were not. The majority of high school appointees - "direct appointment" if you will - got their appointment without ever getting a Letter of Assurance. LOAs usually are received in the Fall of the senior year.

    There are many threads discussing LOAs across SAF.
    The LOA is a tool used in various ways by SA Admissions Departments. There is no published criteria.

    In general, there is something in the candidate’s record - and it may not be scholastic achievement - that moves the SA to essentially say, “hey, if you meet conditions X and Y (could be a nom and medical), we will probably offer you an appointment.” The language differs slightly across all LOAs.

    If a candidate receives one, great, but they aren’t all that common. Many applicants are offered appointments with no LOA, as the more usual path. There are cases where someone with an LOA is not offered an appointment, but that is uncommon.

    There is a Preppie appointee tour on 7 March, that is only for incoming cadets who attended the prep school this past year. They will only be with cadets for lunch.
    There is a Appointee Tour for incoming basics that are either coming out of high school, another college, etc. directly into Usafa that is from 12-14 of April. This is the tour where appointees will live with cadets for their time here.
    (I’m a host on both of these tours. You or your kids could DM me if they have questions)
