Hi all! I have some catching up to do in this thread but I wanted to comment so I don't lose this. I accidentally commented in the wrong thread (the appointment list) and a discussion started. I'm trying to bring that party over here... 🤪

This may have been asked already in one of the previous pages (I'll go back and read to see if I can find it) but I had asked if there were any candidates still waiting that did not have an LOA. It seemed to me that most of the posters had one but were waiting on waivers. My DD doesn't have an LOA but has everything else... I know that many of us are in the same boat but I was curious about the LOA situation.

My rule as long as the portal doesn't say "rejected or denied" he's in the running. I got a falcon foundation scholarship and I honestly thought I was going to be rejected when all the appointments were given out.
Congrats on the scholarship!!

No LOA for DS here and "patiently" waiting, lol. Nomination in January was the last piece of the puzzle. I'm curious about the comments about applicants being pulled off the waiting list. Are you officially told you are being placed on the waiting list? And if so, how? Email?

I'm in the same situation. No waiting list notification either.

What's wrong with posting your district?
I'm quoting stealth_81 here from a different thread
"The moderator team recommends not posting district information for privacy reasons. Once a candidate’s district is known it makes it easier to combine with other posted information and identify an individual."

For example say you have NJROTC unit. You give the district that can narrow it down by a ton becuase that leaves four or five schools. ( Unless it's my district with like 10 schools with Jrotc units minium and most are 3a or above but still 10 verse 1,000 in a state)

Being anonymous is great until your Congressman or Senator puts out a press release with the names of all of their appointees and where they are from.
Which includes the name of your parents 🤦🏻‍♀️.... We didn’t say “no” - it’s quite an honor & they worked so hard but it definitely raises some red flags...

And now the wait just got more interesting. DS received word yesterday from his BGO that he is 3Q for USNA. From what I have read here, it’s unusual to know if you are 3Q, anyone else get a similar notification?

No LOA and waiting. Double nom but waiting on waiver (color deficiency). Currently set on Plan B and actively looking at Plan C in case it overtakes Plan B-- just to keep it interesting.

My DS also has all boxes checked, but no LOA. Very few data points from his state on the forums....I'm the one fretting, he's busy with life and has his plan B's in a row, I'm trying not to nag...

I think that's all that we can do!

I'm having a rough couple of days. I just realized that I am in the wrong forum (USAFA instead of USNA). I think I should take this as a hint to back away from the forum for a little while. I'm creating a mess. hahahaha

Although, I have a feeling that this waiting game is most likely universal across all SAs. Good luck to everyone hanging in there! Hopefully decisions will come flooding through soon!

Hi, I don't have an LOA but everything has been done since November besides the transcript which has been processed on the 17th, and DoDMERB by February. The wait has not been the greatest but it builds character. My mom is taking it worse than I am- she constantly checks this forum (Hi mom :) ) and badgers me to check my portal (it's our daily routine now). This behavior is understandable. After all, parents want what is best for their kids. Anyway, stay strong- the decisions will come out soon.

Does anyone know when most of the Falcon Scholarships are/have been handed out? I am still waiting on any news from USAFA, similar to most of you on this thread, and was wondering if I would still be considered for a Falcon Scholarship. If anyone has any information on this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Wondering that myself? Do the applicants get notified if they are on NWL or is it just internal at admissions?
