    Hey everyone,

    I received my appointment to USNA Oct. 30th, and within about a week I sent in my forms for accepting the appointment..

    Since then, I haven't heard anything back from the Academy, so I was wondering when (if ever) does the Academy send you further information on I-day, confirmation that you've accepted, or anything of that nature for candidates who accepted appointments.

    Thanks.

    I'm guessing they will send out more paperwork after they send out the majority of appointments.

    Not to worry. You will receive a huge packet of info with all sorts of things you listed above...keep in mind that this is the Busy Season and that the majority of candiates haven't received any news about appointments yet and this will go on until at least April and further out......so, sit tight and enjoy the anticipation knowing that you have an appointment. Congrats and good luck!

    So you don't know until April? What if you're not sure whether USNA received your information? I tend to be paranoid about this stuff, considering the fact that if something were to happen I wouldn't be able to go to USNA, and that would be horrible to say the least.

    One other question-while I was glancing through the statement I read that there is an entrance fee of $2,200. I was wondering if the fee today was of the same amount, or if they had changed it? Honestly it would be tough for my family to find such a fee, we might have to do some selling or borrowing.

    Other posters correct me if I am wrong, but we didn't have to do this last year and I think that they do not do this up front anymore.....

    I'm not sure either. This has been $2500 as recently as 2011. I believe this was another of the previous admin's moves. The upfront becoming part of the "loan." They get it, and it's just a matter of the procedure. Pay forward, pay back.

    By "loan", you are referring to the loan received in 2nd class year correct? & If you receive scholarships will you still be able to put it towards this?

    No, WP is referring to the loan that all Plebes take on I-day. Each Plebe gets "issued" a LOT of uniforms and equipment. USNA "loans" them the money to pay for all that stuff, with the expectation that over the coming months, the money will be repaid out of the Plebe's paycheck. For instance, each Plebe "gets paid" ~$900/month, but USNA holds back ~$800/month.

    Up to and including the Class of 2011 (current Firsties), incoming Plebes had to bring ~$2000-$2500 to pay up front for their computer, in addition to taking on the loan mentioned above. Starting with the Class of 2012, though, the extra ~$2000-$2500 was rolled into the loan.

    The "2nd class loan" is entirely optional, but it's such a good deal that just about everyone does it. Once the new 2nd class Mids sign their "2 for 7" papers, they are offered extremely low interest loans (less than 1 %) that don't require payments until graduation. The Mids can use the $$ for anything they want - some invest it, some buy nice new cars, or whatever.

    I-Day "Loan"

    so can scholarship money still be put towards this? It is my understanding that in the past it was.
