    Just wanted to let you know that my son received his Appointment to the USNA this Friday 11/23/2012. He received a letter a week before that he received a nomination from our congressman. We were surprised to hear so early, but very grateful to know. Wondering if any others have heard?

    That's fantastic! I also received my offer of appointment on Friday, and my nomination from my senator the week prior. I however was expecting the BFE after the nomination since I received an LOA in October.
    Did your DS have an LOA, or was his appointment a bit more unexpected?

    Congrats!

    If you don't mind me asking, what did his resume look like? (SAT's, GPA, ECA, Service, etc,etc)

    He did not receive a LOA although his BGO said that he was very competitive. So "Yes" it was unexpected mostly because it was so early. Others we know from previous years didn't hear until late January and beyond. So we were very excited to hear in November.

    I'll have to check with my son to see if he cares if I post his info. I would say however, he has a very strong resume.

    Start The List

    Congratulations! Last year there was a list of those who have been rewarded with an appointment. It went something like this; User name, congressional district, type of nomination, date of appointment. As an example,

    1. HappyMid, CA-01, congressional, 10Nov2012.

    To add a name to to the list one would quote the previous message and then add his/her info right after the previous entry then repost. Anyone want to start? Congrats to the incoming USNA Class of 2017. Cheers...

    lcsmith--Congrats! Best feeling in the world to know all your DS's hard work has paid off!

    USNA2016DAD--great idea about posting appointments. I'll start a new thread so others can join when they receive their appointments. Will copy your instructions if you don't mind. :smile:

    Please Do

    I saw the thread you started, congratulations! I made a little tweak to help the list get started. Take a look for yourself. You are the first entry :) I also posted a message to clarify how to add to the list. If it is not clear, hopefully someone can explain better than I can. Congrats again!
    Cheers...

    Congrats again. And USNA2016Dad, it looks as though your clarified instructions are clear enough that the list is growing rather rapidly. Thanks for the idea, it's cool to see who the other folks with appointments are.
