    Yep we are too and I can't stand it. Hoping to hear before Friday. Next week is our Spring Break and it would be nice to relax a little.

    Ok...good glad we are not the only ones here....

    This forum has been a God send of info and support.

    Figured I'd toss it out there.

    Pins and needles!

    I have learned so much about the Coast Guard. So glad I came across this forum. Hope to be added to the Appointee Facebook list! Just wondering how many more spots...

    I am really surprise - since they said there were 90 appointments offered the other day - that the appointment forum was not lit up with comments about getting appointments. There were a few but not what I expected.

    Didn't want to keep high jacking the appointment thread since we are not there.

    I wonder how many as well. But continuously reading previous threads, our DS/DD'S are still in the running....so that is a good thing.

    Yeah - my DS, although not a member of this site, has been checking comments on here regularly about appointments. I think he is been logging into the CGA website two or three times a day as well. Stressful is an understatement.

    At this point, I think we would be happy with CGAS program. If he got that, both colleges are not far from where we live so it would not be all bad. Something to keep in the running is better than nothing.

    I'm dying over here too! Sent in my RA application in very early December, but some people have already received decisions despite having applied in January! Waiting is killer.

    Definitely on pins and needles!

    DS applied in October for Early Action so we know we have 8 weeks until May 1..... Hopefully we'll hear good news! Yes, we're counting down!

    Lord I hope so. The suspense is killing me. I am really surprised that more people from the 90 appointments that went out did not post something saying "I got in" or whatever. There were a few but I expected more.

    So if you have had no information sent to you about getting DODMERB done it's going to be sad news? Since the cut off is 3/15? Or could someone still get a conditional appointment based on DODMERB clearance? I'm confused.
