    OK, it's April 30th - still no BFE, MWE, TWE - nothing. :eek: Radio silence. DH thinks that since DS received a medical waiver very late in the game (05-APR-10) that his app is hanging in nowhere land. Is anyone else still waiting for some type of contact? When do the appointees have to render their decision - May 1st? :confused:

    There's nothing wrong with your son calling his academy counselor. You might even get through right now if you're ready this. It's about 3:30pm. They might still be there. If not, you should call on Monday and ask them the status directly. Mike.....

    I know of two people still waiting also. One of them also had to get a medical waiver so that must be part of why you are still waiting. Chin up!

    Thank you Christcorp and USAFMortensen. DS did call this afternoon, got the AC's voicemail. He left him a message, he'll try again Monday. Of course we have already placed a deposit with Plan B school - but the waiting (though unavoidable!) is tough.

    It is good to know another "medical waiver" candidate is still waiting too! That does give some additional hope! Thanks again.

    As they say... No news is good news. Better no news than TWE- in most cases, I guess.

    Okay...

    Just for those waiting...with no news...

    Today my congressman had the DISTINCT PLEASURE to call a nice young man in our district to inform him he was being offered an appointment!

    So...not all are done...

    Appointments go out as late as a few days before I-day as appointments are turned down, so you never know

    My son is still waiting. He called his Admissions Counselor last week and they are still considering him for Air Force Prep School. No BFE or TWE...we are hoping for the best!

    Let's all stay full of faith!!

    Good luck Madunn, we are still waiting here too. The AC did not return my son's call...so the waiting continues. I wish your son the best, and maybe tomorrow will bring everyone news. :bang:

    My son talked to the AC yesterday and she said they were looking at the applications as they speak. She said to call back on Friday. We are looking at plan B as well. We have accepted the scholarships, paid the deposits, but there are still SO many more expenses that we are waiting on until we KNOW one way or the other. We are trusting Friday will bring good news!

    Best of luck to you and yours in New Jersey!

    Son just found out on Friday from his AC that he was not selected for Prep School. He will be on the wait list if anyone offered decides not to accept. He's keeping his chin up and looking forward to going to Mississippi State University this fall on an academic scholarship. Aerospace engineering is offered there so he's pretty pumped up about it...go BULLDOGS! He will try again next year!!

    Good luck to everyone! Thanks for your insight and encouragement!!

    Good luck to your son, Madunn. My son heard he's being considered for Prep School too, AC told him on Thursday. His Plan B is studying meteorology at Penn State U Park, paid the deposit before May 1st. Good luck to you....and your son too. I wish you'd had better news, but I firmly believe in fate and you are directed on the path you're meant to follow. Perhaps our sons will still have a chance to meet someday!:smile:
