    DS received appointment to USNA in Dec, and sent in acceptance in Jan. We have not received a confirmation. Does USNA send confirmations?

    thanks!

    No. You'll receive a packet requiring ramping up one's pencil again and making decisions about insurance, alumni membership, eye glasses, etc. Stay tuned, but no need to be concerned in not hearing anything. Ours went from Nov well into spring w/out hearing a word. Don't sweat it. You're good to go.

    Ditto....your official "confirmation" will be the pile (and yes I mean pile) of paperwork and things to do prior to I-Day, some as WP mentioned.

    I believe BGOs (I can't speak from experience since I haven't had any candidates receive an appointment) can tell you or you should email your Admissions counselor, if you want to confirm.

    I would recommend you contact your BGO to see if you show as having accepted your offer. If such is not the case you should contact your Regional Director or Admission Counselor to see if your acceptance has been received and processed. I have had candidates who have had their paperwork go astray, and with the moving of offices, and all of the other things going on in the Admissions shop it is not beyond comprehension that your acceptance has been misplaced. IMHO, it will be to your advantage to pursue this issue now rather than later.

    Hmmm... How many BGOs are there? Or, BGO iss assigned to... what? Schools, regions,etc? I never thought there were BGOs who had candidates that never receive appointments. It's a scary thought, I don't think I will fall asleep tonight. I guess geography, as in where candidates live, affect how they are raised, and some from certain areas don't try as hard as others from other areas? Even with me retaking tests for that max score I still feel worried.

    Matas: The last I heard, there were about 1800 BGO's in the program. They typically are assigned to schools although there were times when I assigned them to specific students, especially in the case of a candidate re-applying or one who was related to his/her normally assigned BGO. There are years when BGO's have no candidates selected for an appointment, for any number of reasons but usually due to the very competitive nature of the selection process, but also for lack of a nomination, failure to qualify medically, etc.
