    OK.. A big sigh of relief just happened in this house. DS just received his acceptance letter to the Corp of Cadets and we all couldn't be more excited. It's funny how the 1st school he applied to is almost the last he was accepted to but we are not complaining at this point.:thumb:

    Great start to the weekend as this was his 1st choice after his official visit.

    Yay!! Not sure if it was the same for your DS but my son's first acceptance from UNG was just a plain letter in the mail and after the beautiful certificates he had gotten from the Citadel and Norwich, it was a little anticlimactic. Yesterday, almost two months after his initial letter, he received a gorgeous certificate and picture of the school. Makes for a nice picture for the grandparents.

    Congrats again!

    Yes, Norwich definitely sent a beautiful letter, certificate, and T-Shirt. Maybe that is how they justify their $$ tuition. He didn't apply to Citadel or any other SMC's so I don't know how they compare but very happy to have his 1st choice taken care of.

    Now if the AROTC scholarship would only happen it would be a double blessing.

    Congrats to your DS, too! What an exciting roller coaster this year is! Very exciting to know that wherever our boys end up, they will be in great company! It truly is amazing to see the accomplishments of the teenagers on this site...gives me hope for the future :)

    Congrats to all! :thumb:

    My DS just successfully completed his first semester at UNG, and is now a c/PFC. Got a nice blue folder with a photo of the school and Corps on the drill field along with his acceptance certificate a little over a year ago. Seems like just yesterday - time does fly, so enjoy the time you have with them now.

    Exciting times ahead!

    Congratulations!

    If Georgia Son ends up choosing UNG and sending the housing deposit by May 1, PM me for an invitation to join our online cadet parents group. It's a resource I wish I'd had once my DS had decided on UNG.

    Enjoy the rest of senior year!
