    Hello, what if first semester grades are not available before that first wave goes out? DS said 2nd quarter/ 1st semester grades are not posted until about the 26th/ 27th and then whenever guidance can get them to WP. He does have a 3 Q letter and a nom but I believe it is an unrated slate. Will the grades not being available automatically count him out of first wave? Any advice is appreciated. He has secured plan B a 4 yr AROTC and the deposit has been made. Also, when you update your file does that mean you have guidance send in something to verify or do you add on to resume and send in?

    Thank you

    I'm not sure but my son had guidance email a copy of first marking period report card and he agreed to scan the second and send as well while he waits for the official transcript and semester report to be ready for submission. There is about a ten day delay between report card grades finalized and the report cards printed and distributed as well as transcript updates and mailings at his school. We figured USMA would at least have unofficial records just in case.

    Have DS notify WP that his first semester grades will not be available until the end of January. Unless hie is an outstanding candidate he will miss the first wave, in fact if they need his grades to rank the slate, the whole slate may be held up. Have patience. Nothing more you can do. There is a reason they delay to mid April to make all the decisions. Plenty of slots still left.

    Ok thank you! His first term grades were received by WP and he had told them that they would not be available until the end of the Jan and was told to just send as soon as available but it never crossed his mind about the first wave cut off. And yes good idea on seeing if guidance could submit unofficial grades .

    Yes patience. Lots of patience.
    Thank you

    Get those grades in ASAP. Also, have your DS advise your RC

    Ty Tug- I am hopeful the office can move things along for him to get it in once they are all recorded.... But close to 2 weeks until out! His file has been complete for so long for the things he had control over.
