    My DS finally received his USMMA appointment to Marion Military Institute (MMI). DS is a recruited football player from Northern Virginia. I guess USMMA is splitting preps between NMMI and MMI this year. Anyone else on their way to Marion?

    DS is there this year as self prep. We await news from USMMA. He likes it well enough that it is his Plan B to return in the fall of he doesn't get an appointment.

    @2015Dad How did you find out? Did you get the letter from the AOG? Or did you see this in your portal? My DS was told that he would be receiving one as well, but we haven't seen anything come through yet, no TWE like many other posters have stated they received. So just anxiously waiting.

    FYI, my DS was just informed via email that his CP offer will be in the mail tomorrow. We never received a TWE or updates online and have just been waiting patiently. Hopefully anyone else who hasn't received the TWE is in the same boat.

    Do you know what percentage of self preps received appointments?

    We're from Maryland and my DS will be prepping for USCGA. Our neighbor is currently at Kings Point - loves it.

    I couldn't tell an exact percentage of the first year MMI self preps to USCGA or USMMA but it didn't seem particularly noteworthy. DS got a very late in the game TWE for USMMA that he was "qualified but not selected" as there were no available seats remaining in his competitive state (VA). We were under the impression self preps had a pretty high percentage of acceptance to the Service Academies but I think it was much less than half. MMI posts numbers of the acceptances on the web page but they don't tell you the total number of self preps that were awaiting appointments... A fact we missed previously. All of that said, DS enjoyed year 1 and will be returning for year 2 and try his hand at another round of applications. Best of luck to you!
