    Hello,

    I contacted the Admissions Office and my Admissions Counselor last Thursday and was told that no decision has been made on my application. I also called my Congressional Representative's office from whom I got the nomination and they, also, had no information. With 6 days left until all candidates are supposed to be informed, I am starting to wonder if that will happen. So, I have the following questions.

    Is the Academy behind in it's schedule?
    Does this happen often to candidates?
    Are there many other people on here who have yet to here?

    Thank you in advance.

    Until the date passes and nothing has been done, they are still on schedule. Hang in there!

    Two sons with military service aspirations and their “still no decision” experiences

    DS #3 – He had the “still no decision” for admission to USNA Class of 2014 going on throughout his entire senior year in high school. He had a nom., great resume and grades and class rank and test scores, interview, etc. – TWE came on 4-7-10. So to Plan B he goes, NROTC – Marine Option - College programmer at in state university. Then Plan C – PLC program. Currently, this DS is a Dean’s List, Civil Engineering degree student, Marine PLC, university junior. He is on track to graduate with a CE degree and receive his commission as a 1st LT. USMC – Class of 2014. And thus begin his career as a Marine officer, his long-time aspiration.

    DS #4 – He too had the “still no decision” for admission to USNA (this younger son for USNA Class of 2016) going on throughout his entire senior year in high school. He had a nom., great resume, grades, class rank, solid interview, but not-as-wonderful-as-big-brother’s test scores. He also had LOADS of back-up plans – acceptances to several universities, with substantial scholarships to some, applications for NROTC and AROTC scholarships submitted, AROTC 4 year scholarship offered (3 year national plus 1 year campus-based). Yet, the “still no decision” for USNA Class of 2016 was hanging out there until 4-15-12. On that day he received a phone call from USNA Admissions office – he was offered a Foundation prep scholarship. He accepted it immediately (Naval Officer is this one’s long-time aspiration). Now he is finishing up a very successful prep year at NMMI and, again, WAITING FOR A DECISION – this time for USNA Class of 2017.

    I think WAIT is an acronym for Whatever Aspirations, In Time.
    Good luck to all still waiting and thank you to all who have, who are, and who will serve.
