DS just got a letter in the mail today. It states: "Congratulations! The Admissions Committee has recommended you for an appointment to USMA. Accordingly, I have reserved a cadetship for you contingent upon continued excellent work in school. When these matters are resolved, you will be appointed a member of the USMA Class of 2019." DS has a Presidential Nom and his 3Q letter, so is this an appointment, or another "thumbs up" in the right direction? It's so early, that it seems to be too good to be true. He has his first MOC interview tomorrow, so he will go ahead as planned until he gets confirmation. He has an email into his RC.
