    Agency: ' US Naval Academy SubAgency: NALOA
    Admission Status: Offer Extended
    Admission Status Change Date: 17-AUG-2009
    Current Medical Status: Medical waiver granted (as of 13-OCT-09 )

    What does is mean when my admission status is "Offer Extended"? I have a LOA from USNA, does that make a difference? It just changed about a week ago even though it says it changed in August.

    I would think offer extended = LOA but dont quote me on it. Do you have a nomination?

    The LOA will spell out what it is contingent upon....(Example) You will be offerred an appointment if you secure a nomination and or if you are medically qualified or waived.:thumb:

    My son's changed to "offer extended" last Thursday and he received his appointment in the mail yesterday. He already had the LOA and nom though.

    usnaswim,

    My son's Dodmerb listing also added "offer extended" last week, but he is not yet medically qualified - going for some remedial tests in January for USMA and USNA is "pending waiver review".

    My son's Dodmerb site shows the following for USNA:
    Agency: ' US Naval Academy SubAgency: NALOA
    Admission Status: Offer Extended
    Admission Status Change Date: 8-SEP-2009
    Current Medical Status: Pending Waiver Submission/Review (as of 25-NOV-09 )

    We assume that the "offer extended" is just an update in the system and is referring to the LOA offer (received in September). I have read of others, e.g. Marciemi, whose son's status also changed to "offer extended" last week, but already had everything lined up (LOA, nom, and medically qualified) and their "Admission status date" also changed to a December date. They have received their Appointment in the last couple of days.

    I have searched for insight on this site (USNA and Dodmerb sections) and some people commented in 2007 and 2008 that when their LOA showed up in Dodmerb, it also changed to "Admission Status: Offer Extended" at the same time and this was before they even had nom interviews (therefore, "offer extended" was refering to their LOA only). Their appointments came weeks/months later.

    I just thought I'd post my experience that as far as we see it, the "Admission Status change date" is your best clue as to whether there is any new movement for you on the admissions side of things. Of course, if you have received a nom, an Appointment is likely to be coming your way soon (as I see you already have an LOA and waiver granted). Holding thumbs that you receive good news soon!

    To clarify for all:

    LOA = The Letter of Assurance will spell out what it is contingent upon....(Example) You will be offerred an appointment if you secure a nomination and or if you are medically qualified or waived. :thumb:

    Offer of Appointment = An offer of appointment is the "actual offer" whereby the applicant is requested to accept or decline the offer of appointment to attend that particular Service Academy. An offer of appointment is ONLY tendered when an applicant has been selected by Admissions; sucessfully completed the CFA; has obtained an authorized nomination; and is has been determined to MEET medical standrads by DoDMERB OR has been medically waived by that particular Service Academy.:thumb:

    DODmerb status read:

    Agency: ' US Military Academy
    Admission Status: In Process
    Admission Status Change Date: 18-JUN-2009
    Current Medical Status: Qualified (as of 12-AUG-09 )

    ----

    What does it mean that that Admission Status is "in process". Does it mean it has gone before the board?

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure on that one either. That was added to my son's AF and WP statuses last week (at the same time the offer extended was to Navy's). However, he has an LOA and a nom to AF, but he also never did any of his WP application after summer seminar. He was told his AF appointment was mailed yesterday but it shows "in process" and I know his WP application isn't complete enough for any board and shows the same so who knows?! :confused:

    In process = means exactly that. It is between being received; awaiting additional information to complete the package; preparing it for review by the Admissions committee; and everything in between. NO final decisions have been rendered.

    Decisions = will not be selected by Admissions; Letter of Assurance; Offer of Appointment; medical waiver denied; any other Admissions DECISION
