    Appointments So Far?

    Hi Everyone: I am new to this forum--my son has applied to Kings Point and we are waiting like many of you, on pins and needles, and running to the mailbox everyday. I also keep checking the DODMERB website daily in hopes that his application status change date will change, but it still says February 3.

    Does anyone know if USMMA has a mass mailing of appointments, or do the appointments come dribbling in, one at a time on a rolling basis? I guess we will all be notified one way or another by April 10, is that correct?

    It is fun and very educational to read all your postings. It really helps in this waiting process--which is the hardest part of all.

    I know that at our school awards ceremony, awards are given out to kids who go to Navy, Army, and Air Force by the area officers. Does USMMA do this as well?

    Yes USMMA does, you can contact your local academy rep. or call admissions and they will send you a nice little speech you can have someone read at the ceremony.

    I think my son got this appointment in Dec, the LOA came earlier and was pending a nom from an MOC. The waiting is really hard.

    The paper work came via Fed Ex. You might want to watch for the Fed Ex van and not the mail box.

    Kprower, welcome to the forums. I can relate to the anxiety of each day that passes with no news. Son's came at the end of April back in 05! His fed-ex package came over night & he had to fax back his acceptance the same day. Appointments can go out right up to the time just before Indoc. Its very rare that happens but not unheard of. Hang tough & keep checking that Candidate page for any changes. The key change you're looking for is for it to read "Principle". Hope you hear good news soon! Fingers crossed!

    SrPayne,
    Are you hooked into the local USMMA parents club?
    You should be able to find a local field point of contact at http://www.usmma.edu/admissions/reps/default.htm .
    Otherwise, call the Kings Point Admissions Dept and ask them.
    If the link doesn't work, pm your city/state to me and I'll try to find it for ya.
    Salute

    Hello - I'm new as of today. My son received his appointment letter February 24 and what I think is probably the "blue folder" arrived in the mail today. (He's still at school tonight with the last practices for the school musical this weekend.) I'm glad I found this website! (And now I think I'll go make hotel reservations for Indoc and Parents' Weekend....)
