No, does it go on the portal? His senior members didn’t seem to know much other than “ hey we saw your name on the list “
It doesn’t go on their portal. USAFA is not directly connected to CAP. CAP is notifying the cadet of their selection, not USAFA.

Is the journey over? No appointments from my state were made during the big wave, so a glimmer of hope is there, but I am unsure.

@bluehopeful56 Not sure how that would happen unless you were the only one from that district.

It’s actually quite prudent. Pairing someone’s district with information from their other posts can lead to identification. That is why the moderators here frequently discourage sharing that information.

Good luck everyone! Just wondering, for those set on attending USAFA, what's the main motivation? Does everyone have a specific Air Force career in mind or is there some other reason?
My DS has been interested interested in Space Force or AF for about 4 years. He would like to fly first, and then work in Spaceflight Operations.
Plan B is to study Spaceflight Operations/Mandarin at ERAU and then reapply to USAFA. He is hoping for the appointment, but would be over the moon if he even received an appointment to USAFAPS.

Is it possible to fly in the Air Force and then transition into Space Force?

If he had the skills why not? The military gets their person for longer and gets a use out of them both ways. If they can do both jobs well and it means they stay in longer ( instead of retirement and working for say delta) it's a win. Pilots typically don't fly for their whole careers and move into office jobs.

Now it might not be easy or available depending on the experience this person would have ( computer engineer would have an easier time than say an english major). Naturally this is just my 2 cents but others have join other branches before.

Based on my DS's experience, a letter will be posted in your portal from admissions informing you they have requested a waiver on your behalf. Then your DoDMERB will update. Then they will contact you if they want more information for the waiver consideration.
Where in the portal are the letters of correspondence posted?
