    Just wondering how many are 2013 appointees and/or how many are now attending? Seems Oregon is one of the least states (in # of students)represented at Kings Point but I could be wrong.

    We're from rural Oregon.
    Thanks!!

    We are close, but not quite Oregonians. My son just got his acceptance to KP from the great state of Montana. We're a little land locked, but so what? Any other Montanans going to Kings Point with the class of 2013?

    Son's visit went great, he loved it. He wanted to stay right then! Everything was actually better than we expected. He really enjoyed his overnight, loved the morning classes he went to with his plebe. He thought the food was.... well, not as bad as it could be. He felt very comfortable and at home there, and of course the Cookie Cafe was awesome. He is more excited than ever and can't wait until July 9th.

    More from the Northwest

    We are from Washington State, and son has just accepted his appointment to KP. You are not alone in the Northwest, though USMMA seems to be a pretty well-guarded secret around here!

    We need some kind of Parents Association way out here in the great NW! Any idea guys? The one listed on the USMMA website hasn't been updated since last year.

    Welcome and congratulations to you son coastymom! :thumb: Kpwehope and I thought we were the only Oregonians with kids heading to KP. I'm actually 30 minutes from the Southern Oregon Coast. Maybe you and kpwehope can connect since she's near where you are, she may not have seen this thread yet.
