My son is unranked slate with nomination. He did not receive Senate noms. He has not received qualification letter, academic letter, LOA or any other communication from USNA outside of typical admissions event(scary it comes in TWE) or response to direction question. He is competitive track runner but chose not to go that route in the process. He has Plan B (NROTC at Texas A&M)...been accepted to Engineering and received Immediate Scholarship Reservation...both paths(USNA and NROTC) have communicated next to nothing in confirmation. (He has a plan C that he's not interested in at all). He is DODMerb Qualified and has all the requisite scores and physical fitness to make him competitive...He seems to take it all in stride...dad is worried b/c it's ds's dream. I've been lurking a while on this site and wonder...is no communication the norm here. Anyway to confirm information received verbally or 'on contract'. He has put faith in the system...but I'm a little more skeptical to the real world of bureaucracy.
