    Our DS heard about three weeks ago from a KP coach that Admissions would be sending out the remaining appointments in late March. I guess a few can go out after that.

    Anyone hear anything more recently from Admissions? Judging from the low volume of activity recently on this blog and from the fairly small number of members on the USMMA 2018 Facebook sites, I am guessing a llot of folks haven't heard anything. Our DS has been on Hold since November.

    We are in the same boat here in Ct. We were told that decisions would be made last week for our state but haven't heard anything yet. Also told by the A.D. that it's a very competitive year. Remaining hopeful here!!!!!!

    Kneedeep,

    I just talked to admissions the other day and due to the bad winter admissions is running a little bit behind this year. They couldn't give me an exact time when my file would be designated but I would assume all initial principal appointments should be going out within the next week or two. Then once mid April comes they usually change some of the holds to principals due to things like not passing physical exams.

    Also, this is just what I'm assuming so don't take my word for it, but it also depends on the type of applicant you are. I believe college applicants are reviewed by a different committee so it may take longer to evaluate. Again I'm not admissions so I don't know how right I may be.

    If you are concerned though just try calling your admissions officer and they will be happy to answer any questions. They understand everyone is very anxious at this point.

    Hope this helps and good luck!

    Yarnista,

    Did you AD say that it was a competitive year for CT specifically? Or overall, it is competitive? If so, is it the most competitive year yet or similar to last years? Just curious as it seems kp has been growing more and more competitive and know the last five years.

    DS got an email today and a telephone call from Admissions to send in spring transcripts. His application has been on hold since January.

    I emailed in transcripts yesterday and received an email back within an hour stating they had them. DS's portal was updated within two hours. I was surprised at the quick turn around.

    It was not just the weather holding things up. KP was shut down during the 2wks of furloughs, while the other academies remained open. They are 2 wks for sure behind getting all appointments out. Good luck everyone.
