    Mail update

    My heart almost skipped a beat, I reached in for the big white envelope and there was one, but not the one I expected. FSU's big white admission packet was sitting there looking all happy, so it was happily placed on the boys bed awaiting his return. :smile: nada from USNA nor USCGA. Better than the thin letter:smile:

    Glad your boy has a backup. It makes you feel better about the future when you have choices.

    That said, come on CGA!! :smile:

    Despite the buzzing of the vibes... nothing.

    BUT, no skinny white either, so Hope Is Alive!

    Maybe you need to bribe the mailman with cookies. Or chocolate....or a big fat punch in the gut? Wait, no, that would be wrong. Go with the cookies. :thumb:

    aww, jt, so sorry. as you might have read, my son was in your shoes last year. he persevered, used his year wisely and was accepted the second time around. if you really want cga, then do all the right things and apply again. i wish you the best. :thumb:

    Nada colada

    IN FLA.......I am confused about the review board though, if they were deferred for early action will we get another one of those "going before the board" letters, Shellz do you remember from last year if you got a second one?

    Ginger-
    Steven wasn't EA last year, so I don't know about a second letter. Actually, I don't even recall him getting a letter at all...just the waitlist email on April 18th, and the skinny envelope on June 6th. Maybe this letter is part of a new procedure, which might explain why some got it and some didn't?

    Sorry I couldn't be more helpful....you guys are in my thoughts and prayers for good news soon. :smile:
