    DD requested to join the 2020 Appointee Facebook a few day ago, but has not received a reply.

    Is there something else she needs to do?

    This is the first time she has ever been on Facebook, so not sure of how the whole thing works. (Not her fault, we would not allow it until now).

    I have had the same problem. I think it might be because they are on spring break right now

    Not sure about this particular page, but most USNA group or class pages are private. When you send a request, the admins send you a private message requesting that you verify your appointment (i.e., picture of appointment certificate).
    Check your "other" folder under messages as frequently when people you aren't friends with send you a message, that's where it goes. This folder is hard to find on your phone app; you may need to get to fb through your browser.

    Check your filtered messages box in FB Messenger. You have to do this online and not on your phone.

    It's amazing, her excitement about the Academy since she was joined to the Appointee facebook page reminds me of the same excitement she had just after she completed summer seminar. She spent over 15 minutes in her car after returning from her college class this afternoon conversing with others on the appointee site.

    As many of us prior military have learned over the years, it's a small world, as you seem to continually cross pathes with people in your past.

    We're trying; can't pin DD down long enough to get a copy of her appointment letter. I've seen her all of 20 minutes in the past couple of days:spacecraft:

    She finally emailed it to us. Hopefully DH can finish the "request" today.

    Other than this forum, are appointees and/or parents sent information about the Parents' Facebook page, especially how to join? I don't recall seeing anything in DD's package, although, she hasn't necessarily shared everything yet.

    I'm asking since the number of parents that have joined thus far seems low. They could be like me and not have a Facebook account, though.

    I went looking for the Facebook page. It wasn't included in the Appointee info.

    When my older son joined the Navy, the Facebook groups had a lot of people who shared info as well as support. I wouldn't have made it through his first two years with my sanity without those groups.
