    My son is attending the CVW this coming weekend, and I'm having problems submitting the online waiver forms.

    I am able to check all the boxes, add all the info, and sign all the signature blanks, and submit. It returns with "You’re almost done. An email has been sent ….", but have not received an email.

    I have tried several times over several days, and have tried several different browsers, but have not seen the email. I’ve checked my junk folder as well.

    I called admissions and was referred to the officer in charge of the program. I left voicemail over a week ago but haven't heard back.

    Has anyone had this same issue? I will be attending as well, so I assume I could sign a hard copy when we arrive if this doesn't work. I don't want to keep calling.

    thanks

    I hope your son has a great time on his CVW. My daughter felt it really gave her a good feel for daily life at Navy.

    I am heading to the next CWV on the 15th-17th, just curious how the parents that went this past weekend felt about the program for the parents. Looking forward to the visit!

    We are back from my son's CVW visit and he loved it. He had wanted to go to a summer seminar and didn't get in, but he feels like this was a very solid look at what the Academy would be like for him, particularly with the opportunity to attend classes etc. His plebe was friendly, he didn't feel out of place or overly judged, although he was aware that his plebe might well be asked to report an opinion about him.

    We found the parent programming interesting, my DH more than I because I have been learning alongside my son about USNA as he goes through the application process but my DH has pretty much not been involved in that as of yet. Consequently, this was his first exposure to what it would be like and to tour the campus.

    Thursday night was a film and a nice welcome/overview that was fairly general but pleasant. This was WITH the kids also. One thing we did not know to expect was that even though it said it started at 5:30 (and it did) apparently there was food and drinks etc on offer beforehand. We arrived at 5:30 so we missed that. So be on the lookout for that if you want some free grub!

    There were a couple of panels on Friday:
    The first involved two admissions officers and a parent of a young person attending the Academy. The admissions counselors were fine but pretty much toed the line on what you would expect they would say but the parent said some things of interest. It was nice to hear of his son's experience through the application process.

    The next panel was four midshipmen, one from each year. That was pretty awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed it. :) Later in the afternoon, the head (?) of the mathematics department (check me on that) did a presentation/academic overview .. it was titled STEM but I think it covered more than that. He was fantastic. Really engaging, well spoken, funny. We enjoyed him a great deal.

    The tour was fine- the only thing we saw that was different from a regular tour was the inside of King Hall where the Mids actually sit and eat. Oddly, it did not go to the Chapel or the crypt.

    We were lucky enough to catch the first parade of the year at 4:00 that day. Pickup was at 9 AM Saturday.
