I'm getting mixed answers regarding the following .... My nephew received a letter this past spring from USMMA stating: "you have been designated a principal appointee from the academy to NMMI". It further stated: "the requirement to successfully complete NMMI for consideration next year to USMMA includes maintaining a 2.5GPA and positive recommendations". The letter concluded with: "please notify the academy of your acceptance or declination of your principal designation by the candidates reply date of May 1". He accepted the designation and is currently attending NMMI. The letter nor any admissions personnel mentioned having to reapply to the USMMA for fall. Hence, he assumed upon meeting the stated requirements of the letter that matriculation to USMMA was pretty much a given. THE QUESTION: Is his assumption correct or is he required to re-apply to USMMA for Fall ? He's received mixed messages from NMMI and USMMA regarding this.
