I'm the mother of an USNA candidate for the women's rowing team. DD called the coach back in August and they talked for almost an hour. The next day she was invited for an official visit. She went - it was great. Application, congressional nom, fitness test - done. eye exam and physical scheduled Wednesday and thursday this week. The Coach wrote a recommendation for her to the Admissions board. DD has awesome grades, 4.2 but her standarized test scores aren't "great" ACT 26 and SAT 1540. The coach emailed DD telling her that she put in a strong recommendation for her. There are 6 spots they can put recomendations in for and DD was one of them. Has anyone else been in the situation or know about this? Isn't funny how the parents are a wreck waiting and the kids just keep going as if nothing was going on? More background: Both DD parents (yes me) are Navy Vets. Dad is a retired "twin pin" SEAL / EOD and I was one of the only 7 women in the military at the time (Gulf War) in Spec OPS - EOD. DD has submitted the Presidential Nomination since her Dad is retired Navy. How often does the Admissions board meet?
