    Should the letter have a unique four digit number at the top, right hand corner like every other letter I've received or is this one different? I ask because there was some confusion early in the process and I recieved two candidate numbers, but the one in my SWE does not match the others that I have recieved, which are all identical.

    Yea. Mine has a four digit number as well, but it matches all the rest on all other correspondences.

    Is it part of your candidate number? Or was it another number?

    I'm guessing Small White Envelope. It's usually referred to as a TWE (tiny white envelope) on this forum, i.e. a rejection letter.

    That is what I thought, but wasn't for sure.

    Massive Confusion

    My DS started this thread. Last year the USNA created two profiles for him with two different Candidate numbers. One profile was complete with all qualifications except DODMERB (concussion two years ago). Other profile was incomplete. We have struggled with USNA to rectify the problem. Thought it was clear but I guess not.

    He received an invite to Candidate Weekend two weeks ago with correct Candidate number.

    Yesterday received TWE with incorrect Candidate number.

    Any advice? This is crazy. We don't know who was rejected - the correct candidate or the incorrect candidate.

    We have called DoDMERB, MOC, BGO and Regional Admissions. NO HELP ANYWHERE!

    Thanks

    There are some responses on the other thread where you posed this same question, including my own.
