    DS received a very unexpected email last week from admissions advising him to complete the steps in his portal. His application was submitted in September but Admissions wouldn't open his portal due to low ACT scores. Now it seams they want him to complete the steps for application. What a roller coaster ride of emotions. He has a nomination from our representative so maybe that is what prompted the opening of the portal. All we can do is pray and press on.

    I read through your older posts and it looked like your son had Boys State and Eagle Scout. That's a lot of leadership points. Couple that with, using your words, "low ACT scores" and it almost sounds like they might be opening the portal for completion so that they might consider him for USMAPS.

    Or did he take a more recent ACT and newer better scores made the difference?

    Get 'er done! There's a reason they asked for this although no one here will know what it is. Even if it's just a shot at something, anything, do it!
