    Congrats to both your DS and DD - and welcome to the USMMA Family - contrary to popular mottos the Service Academy experience - NOT Cedar Point AMusement Park - generally starting your child's Junior Year of High School and ending at Graduation IS "America's Roller Coaster" .

    So please securely fasten yourself in and keep your hands and feet in your assigned car and your witts about you as the Brits say.

    Seriously, exhale and enjoy the feeling as long as you can before you and they start to get worried about everything you have to get done before reporting in July ... then everything you'll worry about befer ... then ... before ... before... before and before you know it (after what will seem like forever while you are going through and just yesterday when graduation comes), it'll be June/Kings Point Weekend 2018.

    Thanks jasperdog and others!

    Yes, we are ready to strap ourselves in again.. We had another son graduate from KP in June. If this ride is as exhilarating and at times nerve-wracking as the last one, it's going to be a most interesting four years.

    Were you notified by email, phone call or by checking your portal?

    Got the Principal today. Now what happens? Will they call me? Do I get a BFE? My MOC has retired since the nomination--so no call coming there. Is Principal status on the portal a def appointment? Any info will be appreciated. I want to be excited but it seems so quiet---except for my mom crying ;)

    Yes, a Principal appointment on the portal is definite. If KP does things as they have done in the past, then you should get a BFE via FedEx in a few days. In that package will be a letter of acceptance that you will need to sign, date and return to KP if you are ready to commit. Congrats!

    You are officially in, congrats! A BFE should be coming soon. Usually your admissions officer notifies your congressman and then your congressman calls you with the news first though.

    In that case, I can leave the mailman alone and start stalking FedEx! That's great news. So glad I held out on paying that deposit to Auburn

    Congrats to all!! I was asked by one of the class of 2017 parents to let you know that you are invited to join the facebook page titled USMMA Class of 2018 Parents and there is a similar page for new class of 2018 appointees. Based on the parents facebook page, there are a few females in the class of 2018. See you all at INDOC in about 3 months!

    DS checked the portal and his status shows "Principal." Quite a surprise since his status was "Hold" since January.

    DS's portal updated Monday morning. Congressman called him today to congratulate him. The entire application process has indeed been a roller coaster ride.
