    About two weeks ago I filled out the Pre-Junior Registration since I was interested, and today I got mail from them (didn't surprise me). My only issue with this is that my mom is not very... fond of the military. She completely flipped on my sister once because she said she thought she might want to join the army. Anyways, I don't want her questioning why I'm getting stuff from the academy, so is there any way I'm able to opt away from receiving physical mail? I tried looking around on the website but couldn't find anything. I'd rather not have a confrontation about this with my mom so soon when I'm not even 100% sure about anything yet.

    As I recall, I believe all of the admissions/application info and correspondence my DS received was via email and on his applicant portal. I don't recall receiving anything other than a calendar and his acceptance letter in the mail.

    That's weird. I've never received anything in my email from them... I'll just hope they don't send anything else through the mail

    My daughter's pre-junior "stuff" all came through snail mail. It wasn't until she filled out her actual application online that she received things through email.

    I'm sorry you aren't getting support from your mom about this. My DD's best friend had the same problem. She had all her pre-junior stuff mail forwarded to my daughter until she made the official decision to apply and then told her parents.

    I wouldn't worry to much! All I got this year was a thing my junior year, 2 thick packets (both had calenders and a sticker in) and my offer of admission. If you can dodge at least three bullets your fine. But imo, I'd sit and discuss it with your parents if this is your number 1 option. I thank my parents every day for all their help. They tell me I did it but I dont think I could've done all the paper work and things with out them. They were my saving grace. And that'd be a hard not to leave on if they don't know, you get in, you tell them and leave for basic. I fought hard with my parents over them not wanting me to enlist (my first choice) but I had to compromise for my sanity and theirs and my compromise turned out to be the greatest decision of my life. But, that is just my story, you won't get much snail mail just lots of emails between 4am an 8am.

    I know I really should share my interest in going there, but I just don't want any unneccessary tension when I'm not 100% sure and still have time to figure it out. Anyways, I'm a teenager. I'm bound to change my mind about two billion more times by the end of the year :D :rolleyes:

    If confronted by your mom, let her know that an academy education is valued at $415,000. Not everyone understands its a 4 year institution.....and you will graduate debt free as an officer.
