    DS received a letter today clarifying he has been placed in Hold status and is on the National Wait List. It indicates that appointments will be issued through 4/16/15, but to be aware that candidates can be pulled from the wait list just days prior to report day in July.

    Yep, we got ours last month. If you look at the USMMA's admission statistics between those that "Met Selection Criteria" and "Offered Appointments", there's a 50-60% chance of acceptance. That's not too discouraging I suppose.

    Might be higher than that since you can not filter out those that have been offered appointments to other service academies and will not accept the USMMA one. I am sure that MMA has a target yield to achieve and must be difficult to predict with defectors heading off to the other service academies.
