    Averx615 suggested February 20th as a good day to start checking the mail again..... :smile::thumb:

    I would prefer sooner, but realistically she is probably right!

    fingers crossed for everyone in the waiting game!

    LOL... that was just a date that Avery (here on the forum) said in another post.. it really doesnt mean much, but it seems like a good date to go with.. :shake:.. It would be so much more cost effective if they just sent emails or phone calls... :) and quicker too LOL :shake:

    Hey where is LITS?? :biggrin::thumb:


    PS I love this site : http://www.churchsigngenerator.com you can make signs that say anything :)

    As for emails/phone calls from the academy, I seem to recall some appointees last year (and maybe this past Dec?) getting a phone call from their admissions officer with the good news. Maybe our kids will be fortunate as well! Here's hoping. :thumb:

    so I was in the mail room the other day picking up a package from home

    mmmm... brownies

    and I couldn't help to notice that there was a box that said "Admissions" and it was filled with big envelopes waiting to go out.

    just a heads up for a few :thumb:

    (there was about 20 envelopes, so don't get your hopes too high)

    Intel from the front lines, gotta love it. Keeping my fingers crossed and hopeful prayers to all who wait. I remember that part well. Good luck!

    Ok....here is the plan.....mail brownies to cadets in exchange for tidbits of info on when the envelopes go out....:shake:

    Ok, maybe not.

    Have a great weekend of not stalking the mailman. :smile:

    For those deferred... what, if anything, did you send to beef up your

    admissions file before the evaluations for Regular Admission begin?

    Got a greade check from teachers (since new grades are not in the computers yet).

    New updated Resume (with all the NEW stuff she has done since we sent in the EA).

    SAT retaken, but that will get sent in automatically this month.

    Maybe...but I would think that bundle of mail might be a bit larger...a mass mailing? 20 seems like just the right number for a more targeted mailing, say appointment offers. One can hope, anyway, that it is good appointment news for some worthy (and impatient :shake:) future cadet and family (mom).

    Have a great weekend!

    i a was just up there for an interview and i droped off my updated grades and a few letters of recomendation.

    my admissions officer, LTJG Parker, said that they have an entire room full of maill that has not been opened yet. apparently it takes so long b/c all the info is put in by hand...i feel bad for them sometimes haha.

    just thought everyone would like to know where they stand :)

    Wow. A whole room of unopened mail?!? They really

    need some extra help it sounds like. I think the admissions officers all need a raise and a staff!
