If I may. You can go ahead and start answering trivia questions now. The sooner you do, the better chances of you receiving a higher rank after graduation. Of course it depends on how many you get right. So get started.
Your rank thingy will show up as soon as the ranks people behind the scenes can get to it. They do a lot of work, just give them a little time.
The first ship you will be assigned to will be an Academy ship, whichever is next to sail out. Normally they like to wait until they get a fair amount of cadets, before they set sail. After graduation, you may elect to choose your assignment wherever there is an opening, or you can just let personnel assign you where they think they need you.
Until your Academy ship starts its mission, you may partake of any current thread that is open and active with other cadets or officers. You can also open a new thread yourself, or maybe one of the Academy instructors will open one up and tag you (invite) to participate.

If the mission runs on time then the highest rank you can achieve is full Lieutenant if you answered the trivia before your were assigned a training ship. However, Lieutenant Junior Grade seems to be the standard or at least was for my mission. Just a little infomercial there.
I was just wondering when I would be added to the Cadet Info Page.
Most likely in the next round of updates, which the academy command staff attempts to do regularly. I say atempts, because real life tends to get in the way at times, and it's a(n) (unwritten I suppose) rule that real life tends to come first at all times.
