    Got the heads up call from the wife that a thick letter (USPS Priority) from West Point came to the house today and, what should she do?....I of course said: "open it!" She, being the smart one in the family said no, I'll drive to his school and wait outside for him by his car. He's on cloud nine now and has already signed the accept letter with a fountain pen. lol Not kidding, he insisted on signing it with his prized fountain pen.

    Question: is there any way to acknowledge this and accept on line and is there anything else coming? The package only had the acceptance to USMAP's in it's leather like binding and a short letter congratulating him. There were also two separate letters to either accept or decline and a large (way larger than one letter's worth) to send the acceptance letter back. Is that typical?

    We're really nervous that there should be something else like instructions or medical forms. He passed his DoDMERB but I just thought there would be something else....

    Congratulations!!
    :jump1:
    I don't have experience with USMAPS but I would guess they will send more paperwork once they receive his acceptance form. After all, why waste time and money sending all that paper to candidates until they accept the offer.

    Very good point...thanks, I'm still kind of in a fog since this afternoon, we're letting it soak in! lol

    Would anyone here know if they change your candidate portal site on line? I'm not noticing any changes.

    please, accept the offer of an admission to USMAPS. Then USMA will move the candidate file to the Class of 2014 file. WAMom68// has explained well.
