Well, My daughter's application is complete. The only two things now that are in her control, and will make any difference in this process, are 1) She is going to retake the SAT. 2) She will hopefully have one congressional interview. She applied for all three, but two of them (one Senator and one Rep.) don't interview but hand over ten unranked nominations for every open slot. The waiting is awful and I can't imagine making it to the end empty handed. Arg! That is a quick way to deflate a young person who has worked so hard for something. I know this must sound like I am complaining, trust me I am not. Just anxious due the long process. She is looking into other options. It is good to know that we are not waiting alone and I find comfort in reading these posts. Thanks for being on this journey with us, especially to those USNA graduates and BGO officers that post here! We would be almost blind without your wisdom and insight.
