    Is there a date by which a candidate must accept or decline an appointment? On the portal, it says that failure to accept or decline could preclude appointment, but it doesn't give a date. DS is thrilled with his appointment but wants to wait until he hears back from the other Academies he's applied to and has had a chance to visit in early March.

    Why wait till March to visit? With an LOA or Appt you can schedule an overnight to USMA, which I highly recommend.

    Request a CVW or other visit from USNA, etc.

    You'll hear different stories & opinions on waiting that long to accept, so he'll have to make his own decision there.

    You have until May 1 to accept your offer. However, Admissions will "encourage" you to accept well before that.

    Last year, those 'encouragement' emails started coming out in March.
