    I have not seen any others from MN on the 2020 Appointments thread. Anyone know why? I have applied for this year (class of 2020) and am "Complete Pending Review" according to the portal. I just find it hard to believe that there isn't at least one person who is willing to add themselves to the appointment thread.

    Thanks in advance.

    Some people participate but may choose to not post such information. Everyone who gets an appointment to USNA doesn't use this forum.

    The list has around 100 names right now. The threads tend to end up with around 100-125 names or so out of 1200+ people.

    Here is some Data for MN, but none are on the list:

    Information on MN Appointments from Feb.

    "It’s that time of year again when appointment letters are being sent out to future midshipmen. In the Class of 2020 hopefuls, Minnesota had a total of 73 candidates, 27 of which “triple-Q’d” that is qualified academically, medically and physically. As of this writing, 12 offers have been issued by the Academy as well as one offer to attend NAPS. Seven candidates have accepted to date."

    OP, the fact that you did not receive a TWE means you are still in the running. Don't give up just yet! From that document you are one of the 15 "triple-Q'd" that is on the verge of being notified. Otherwise you should have been told "NO" already. Hang in there and best of luck!!!

    I am not aware of Minesotans being shy, except in this case! ;)

    This past Saturday, USNA appointees from MA got to tour a destroyer that was in port in Boston. The regional B&G coordinator told my family that thus far, there were 16 appointments from MA. Don't know how many candidates or number that were fully qualified...

    Since I have not been rejected yet but am still CPR, does that mean that I am on a sort of waiting list for Minnesota to see whether or not those remaining five out of twelve accept or not, and if one or more of them do not accept, I might get an appointment? I am in MN-06 by the way.

    Not necessarily. It doesn't mean if one declines an appointment they will offer another appointment. It doesn't work that way. USNA offers X amount of appointments based upon algorithms and other data to reach a target size class. Of those 12, you never know how they are being charged for Noms... they could be Supts, VP, Presidential, ROTC, MOC, etc. Its a large puzzle USNA is putting together. You don't have a TWE yet, that is good news, you are still in the running. Hang tight, keep working hard, work on back up plans and enjoy your senior year.
