    I spoke to my brother(2012 USMA grad) tonight for a brief time, he has some reprieve from jump school at the moment. I was updating him about where I stand with USMA, and I was asking him some questions about his admissions process. He told me that when he was at the academy he met people who were told they were not selected, but were then appointed very late; one guy he said received an appointment a week before Beast.

    Now, I'm not saying this to get anyone's hopes up. At this point if a QNS has been received then USMA is a non option. I'm just hoping that maybe a little bit of the tiniest optimistic news will make it a little easier for the candidates who did not receive their sought after appointment.

    When hope is lost, all is lost.

    I think you are right. I think this year its a little more tight. But if there is only 1900 that they have appointment , then maybe if there is 35 that loose there appointment, then they would fill it with 35 off the NWL. I am not sure, but that kinda makes sense. Never Know

    The nubmers is outdated, but as of March 27,

    Qualified—1902
    Offered (Total)—965
    Offered (Outstanding)—275
    Accepted—649
    Declined—41

    The class size is limited to under 1200, with appointments for prepsters not being given out until late April (as of this morning I didn't see prepsters getting appointments on the field force data base), we are basically looking at the majority of the future appointments made based on declines. From what I seen in MD, decline rate is less than 10%.

    So something like 1200 (max appointment) - 649 (accpeted as March 27) = 551 (max remaining appointments)

    551 (max rermaining appointments)- 275 (outstandig offers as March 27) * .9 (assumed accepted) = 303 (remaining appointments).

    I am not sure but Prepesters should be 200 +/- 10, so as of March 27, still about 100 applicants should get appointment offers from the NWL, give or take.

    My best guess is that about 15-30 more people will get offers.

    The final decisions on the Prep School students will be done early next week. The fate of about 20 of these students is in doubt - the remainder will get in.
