    Is it true the Review Board is meeting this week on the 15th? Someone told my DS. Just curious. Thanks for any insight

    I may not be the one to answer but I thought they meet every Tuesday and Thursday after the first of the year?

    The board is now meeting twice a week and will continue to do so until all appointments have been awarded, the bulk of appointments will go out in March...so keep your fingers crossed!

    I don't think in all of our lives my family has ever been more anxious to hear about something!

    This is my second time waiting for a BFE so hopefully i get one early! Last year I got my twe on april 15th. What im doing now to cope with the anxiety is setting a set time that I go to the mailbox each day to check the mail, if there is no news, in my mind that is sort of good news, and I go on the rest of the day not thinking about it. Because at this point if you are waiting you wont probbably be adding to your application, so just chill and relax :smile:

    Too many midshipmen in the Brigade

    Maybe some of the Blue & Gold Officers have some insight to this rumor.

    It appears the Brigade is too large - over 4600. The size of the incoming Plebe classes are largely based on the expected attrition.

    The past few years, attrition has been at an all time low. But the new Plebe classes have still been in the 1200-1350 range. Consequently, there are too many midshipmen. The normal Brigade size is just slightly over 4000, usually in the 4100-4300 range.

    There seems to be more midshipmen getting the boot this year than in recent history. Instead of all the second chances that were being liberally given out in previous years for honor, conduct, and academic issues - many midshipmen are now discovering that it's "Strike ONE! You're OUT!"
