    Received my official acceptance BFE from USNA today in the mail! I just wanted to thank everyone on this forum for being such a huge help and for being so patient with me! I know I asked tons of questions but it really really helped! I honestly did not see myself where I am now during my freshman year of high school, and attending an academy seemed like a distant fantasy of mine. I'm still processing the fact i got accepted, but I knew the first thing I wanted to do was show my gratitude to all those who were there to help out. I know that questions can get repetitive and sometimes just seem ignorant, but please know everyone on this forum is making a difference! Thank you again!! #Classof2018 :smile:

    Congratulations! Great news. I hope my DS soon gets a BFE. I agree this forum is hugely helpful. What state are you in?

    Question about BFE

    Just wondering did you hear from your MOC first or did you simply receive the BFE in the mail?

    I got mine in the mail first. Didn't hear anything from MOC or BGO. From what I have read and my personal experience, I think the actual candidate is the first one to find out. I contacted my BGO and let him know though

    Many MOCs make first contact via phone (USNA Admissions gives them a window to do that), and they don't all necessarily call the candidate. It varies. In DD's case, the MOC called me because he wanted me to decide how to break the happy news at home.

    Reaching out with thanks to those who helped along the way is good. Hold onto that practice :smile:

    MOC called DS, college reapplicant. Thankfully, it was between classes so he answered the call. Beats the TWE he got last April!

    Congrats, Staying Positive!

    Nice of you to acknowledge the helpfulness of forum participants, and I would like to add my thanks onto that.

    I found the forums a couple months ago, have been reading a lot, and the information has been extremely helpful in trying to figure out a complex process.

    Thanks to all who patiently answer questions and add invaluable information for the benefit of others!

    :smile:
