    Hi All,
    I have been lurking here for quite some time and learning an awful lot. So, thank you all for that.

    My son has been on the dreaded "hold" status for several months now. Today, when he checked his portal the status was blank. There was nothing there in the field where the hold had been noted.

    Any ideas? Does this mean he is going to get the TWE? Did this happen to anyone else?

    From what I've read in this forum it means that you will be getting an offer to prep school-I'm not admissions though so you're best bet is just calling and asking. They are extremely helpful and willing to answer whatever questions you have about your application status.

    Good luck!

    My son is currently at the prep school. Last year I recall his portal when from "hold" to blank. I would not worry. The preps will be getting word soon on their status, his still is currently blank. Just give it time. If you get the prep school option I would highly recommend he goes. It has been the best thing for my son and he would certainly agree with me. He will most certainly be ready for the academy in the fall. Good luck!

    Thank you all for the positive thoughts!! Fingers crossed (well toes, too) that it all works out. I really think this would be a great opportunity for him and will be soo thankful if it works out because he wants it so badly!

    Did you find out about the blank status yet?

    I have a dear friend in very competitive state still on Hold for the second time. The wait is killing me and I'm not even the parent!

    My son received an envelope today from USMMA. It was a Prep School offer!

    I'm sure he will hear something soon! What is his current status? Is it hold? We live relatively close to King's Point and would receive our mail before others in different parts of the country! I will say a prayer for your son and cross my fingers and toes!

    Good Luck!
