    I was told by my admissions officer that my file was reviewed today. Would it be inappropriate for me to call the office and ask about my status?

    Did your admission officer email you that out of the blue or did you ask? Curious why he would tell you that but not tell you what was decided. Is that typical for them to email you and say when your file is going to be reviewed?

    Yes it would be inappropriate. Buckle in and wait patiently. They will not tell you anything anyway.

    The email started because i sent an updated USNA Candidate Activities record to him via email. He respond about 3 days ago, 2 weeks after i emaild him, that he received it and would update it. He asked if I was taking the ACT again and that he was putting together my file for review.

    If he asked if you were taking the ACT again, you likely have room to improve. Keep working on making your application the best you can -- take the ACT again or take the SAT if you haven't yet. This is a marathon process (and he likely wouldn't tell you your status if you did contact him). Good luck!

    Yeah just as others already said, Admissions isn't gonna tell you anything. Just the name of the game :rolleyes:

    My son got a call from USNA admissions as he was sitting in class this past week. Class had not started yet and he saw "Annapolis, MD" on his caller ID so decided to take the call :eek:. They just had a question about his application (specifically about his math teacher evaluation).

    I was told not to read top much into their questions but that they were just wondering if I was taking it again, took it today. I suppose there's always room for improvement though. Hopefully I get the super score this time.

    3 Q'd

    I am a bit surprised that I have read so many posts about not being notified if the board finds you scholastically qualified. I currently have a firstie at USNA and when he went through the process four years ago, I was quite certain that he was in fact notified by Admissions that he was scholastically qualified. Just for kicks, I pulled the old USNA file (we kept all correspondences from the whole process), and sure enough I found the letter. It came a couple weeks after my son completed his application. It is from the Naval Academy Admissions Team, and it states "The Admissions Board has reviewed your record and has determined you are scholastically qualified to compete for an appointment to the US Naval Academy Class of 2015." At that point, I knew my son was 3 Q'd because he had passed his CFA at NASS, and was determined to be medically qualified by DODMERB. So unless things have changed in the past few years, you can, in fact, be notified about that 3rd Q! Good luck to all! :thumb:

    Things have indeed changed in the past few years, and that letter is no longer part of the communication flow to applicants.
