    DS is Hold Status. According to both Senators from NC and our congressman they have not been informed of anyone receiving appointments. Has anyone from NC received an appointment?? Thank you

    Navy Seal Mom.....I belong to the FB parents group and I don't believe anyone has joined from NC. That being said, the group is still quite small. I hope this helps! I know the waiting is the hardest! Good luck to your DS, I hope he gets in!

    Sure thing! I looked and there are about 40 people in the group, so that is more than I thought. Again, I haven't seen NC yet! Good luck and keep the faith!

    t&omom - do you know if there are any parents from MA in the facebook group? We are still waiting too. Heard that two appointments were given out mid February - One from NMMI and the other did not get a nominations. Still Hopeful!

    Are you sure? I'm fairly certain that no one at NMMI has received their appointment to the USMMA yet.

    cas, I haven't seen one yet. That being said, I could've missed it or they may not have joined the FB group! Good luck to your child and truly keep the faith!

    t&omom, thank you for getting back to me. My DS visited USMMA last weekend and stayed overnight. We were told that a small group of candidates have been accepted and once the portal closes (March 1st) it will shake out those who didn't complete the application.

    Kevetter,

    MY DS tried to call admissions onces his portal changed to HOLD. He couldn't get through so he contacted his field admissions rep. He got an answer right away. My son's guidance office miss calculated his class rank and sent the wrong information. We knew this was wrong so we contacted his high school and the correct information was sent FEDEX. With that being said his Field Rep said that there are 5 vacancies in our states and 2 may not be filled. We assume because of cut backs but after visiting last week they are only taking 250 into this class (one dorm is under constructions) plus all academies are not admitting as many students in 2017. Again, what we were told is that one candidates was given a conditional appointment in the middle of February, one given an appointment (we since found out that he is waiting to see if he got into USAFA, USNA), and the third was a hold over from last year a candidate from NMMI he will be accepting the appointment. Needless to say we were very upset with my DS guidance office and believe that this made a difference in where he fell. Not sure how many from our states got nominations but we where also told that 7 candidates hadn't completed the application process as of February 22nd and being in HOLD means our DS is still in the mix. This is his first choice and got three nomination. We will know on or before April 10th. Good Luck To You and or Your DS and or DD.

    NC Appointments

    Howdy, We have not seen or heard of any Tarheel appointments yet. There is info to be found on Google about nominations from Sen Hagen and Congresswoman Foxx, I have yet to hear anything from Sen Burr's office ( no call , no interview ). My USNA DS is playing the waiting game too. He is working the other angles with ROTC at NCSU and Emery Riddle, and working hard to maintain high grades for this last semester ( 3 AP and 1 Honors course ). Good Luck to all.
