    DS is still waiting to hear from USMMA and USNA. Let's say he isn't offered an appointment to either or Prep, could he apply to lets say to NMMI now for the upcoming school year or it it too late? Trying to plan ahead to see if he should just go with plan B or send him to prep school if possible…Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Most of the prep schools are still taking applications due to the fact that their future prep students are still in limbo waiting to find out if they are going to receive an appointment. The prep schools will be receiving applications for a while, some as late as early summer, as those who receive TWEs move forward with their plan B, C and D's. You need to find out where you were weak in your file. Were your SAT's not high enough? Were your grades not in the competitive range? Were you lacking leadership? Find those answers and decide which plan will best help prepare you to be a competitive reapplicant. For many, a good 4 year college/university will be enough. For others, a good prep school preferably one with college classes will offer more assistance to prepare for the academies.

    I went to Northwestern Preparatory school (check it out, really good program with a lot of success!!) and they accepted my application to the school in the end of April but I know some people who didn't even apply until May.

    "free agent"

    Yes, you can attend a prep school. You would be called a “free agent” because you are not sponsored by an academy. Those who are there from a scholarship are called “sponsored”. Depending on the prep school you choose they may have scholarships to help cover costs.

    I favor NWP. I think they have a great program with a great track record. Even if your applicant goes to a regular school they will be better prepared.

    Push Hard, Press Forward
