    Top playlist songs for the typical USNA candidate

    THE EARLY DAYS BEFORE YOU HAD A CLUE
    " Chances are when said and done, who'll be the lucky ones to make it all the way?"(Five for Fighting)

    DURING THE MASSIVE MOUNTAIN OF APPLICATION MATERIALS DUE TO USNA, MOC, TEACHERS, ACT/SAT websites, DODMRB, NROTC, etc..
    " Under pressure, pushing down on me, pushing down on you!!"( David Bowie)

    USEFUL WHILE OBSESSIVELY CHECKING PORTAL, FB CANDIDATE PAGE, MAILBOX, and TWITTER( Even if you hardly tweet)
    "All I want is to have my peace of mind"( Boston)

    PRETTY MUCH THE ENTIRE TIME BETWEEN THE NEVER ENDING COMPLETE PENDING REVIEW PROCESS AND NOW
    " I will wait... I will wait for you" (Munford and Sons)

    AS YOU START TO SEE THE APPOINTMENTS POSTED RACK UP AND HAVE NO CLUE WHATS GOING ON IN YOUR STATE MUCH LESS YOUR DISTRICT? YOU ONLY KNOW YOU HAVE NO TWE AND ARE, well you know, COMPLETE PENDING REVIEW( for what feels like eternity☹️
    " Don't stop believing, just hold on to that feeling!"( JOURNEY)

    FINALLY, AS YOU LOG ON TO THE FORUM, DESPERATE FOR ANY SCRAP OF NEWS OR TIDBIT OF " SCUTTLEBUTT"yes that's a NAVY acronym), YOU GAIN ENCOURAGEMENT FROM OTHERS, VISUALIZE PLAN B's or C's, BUT STILL NO TWE ( or the now modern email)YOU SAY TO YOURSELF...
    " We don't call the shots here, we don't make the rules, We take what we get, Get what we can... That's learning the hard way, Here on the streets, You can't build a dream without a plan, Passion speaks, let them hear you speak, They play to win, we play for keeps,

    " The odds are against us, they say we don't stand a chance, well there's no giving up, no giving in... When push comes to shove, you've got to fight for what you love, You do what you must, Do what you can,
    IT'S NOT OVER TILL ITS OVER, DONT GO GIVING IN! ITS NOT OVER TILL IT'S OVER!!!!!!!( Jefferson Starship)

    Hang in there everybody and DON'T GIVE UP THE SHIP⚓️❤️

    @ Wildcat... parents play the music all the time...so true!!


    @Class2020Dad... In same boat as you, got my acceptance to Cornell yesterday. I have been accepted to all of my schools but still want BFE from USNA as I'll decline all my other offers. Good luck to everyone with plans B-Z... If still on the island of CPR, wishing everyone luck and patience

    Good luck md403☘ Can't imagine how hard it must be being so close( literally) to USNA that you can touch it. It must feel like " SO CLOSE... SO CLOSE AND YET SO FAR" as Frankie Valley sang!( omg I can't help myself with the song correlations) I sincerely hope you get the BFE. They sure would be lucky to have you rowing for them instead of one of the Ivies!

    And best of luck to you as well Class2020Dad☘!! I've been following your story since I have been on this board and it's obvious how much you and DS really want this. But it also sounds like your backups are incredible so either way you should be SO proud! Really hoping me and my DS see ya'll at I-Day⚓️
