    Starting a threat for those who have received full appointments and CGA Scholars appointments. Congratulations to all: Go Bears!

    To add to the list, quote the message, add your name and details on the next line, then remove the "quote" symbols at the beginning and ending of the post you are adding too. Check your work by selecting "preview post". If it is OK, then select "submit post".

    If you are a parent, you can designate DS or DD after your user name. If you are the Cadet to be, just use your user name. Now sit back all and watch this list grow.

    Parents Group

    For parents of the CGA Class of 2018, we created a Facebook group.

    The CGA is helping us with verifications, but if your son/daughter has received their offer of appointment, be sure to check in at:

    When announcing your appointments...

    It is helpful to others to know when it was received, and what state the appointee is from. Also... why list it as a FULL appointment? All appointments are full aren't they? And they are all subject to conditions... therefore one appointment is not better than another.

    When we see lists for any of the academies it is fun and informative to see where the appointee is from and when it was received. This little extra inspiration can give others hope.

    Of course for the other academies it is helpful to see the nominating source too.

    Congrats to all appointees!:thumb:

    Some people receive appointments to CGAS (Coast Guard Academy Scholars Program) which is basically a year at a military prep school in either Georgia or Alabama. Upon successful completion, they would receive full appointments to the incoming class for the following year.

    As far as listing the state, I'm not sure that is as important as it is with other academies. With CGA, applicants are competing on a national level as opposed to other SA's where applicants are competing more on a congressional district and state level.

    It is fun to watch the list grow for all of the SA's. These kids have a promising future ahead of them.

    Well...

    If someone received a scholarship to a prep school why would they list it on the appointment to USCGA thread? It may (probably will) ultimately lead to an appointment, but not until next year.

    As for including the date of the appointment, that's what a lot of kids want to know... when did the offer go out?

    And... as for what state a kid is from, that is just for fun. For interest, for discussion's sake, or to alert parents who may want to contact others in the area with kids considering their appointment.

    I've been on these boards for 12 years. usna-net, usna-parents, etc. I've seen lots of appointment threads and don't see any real purpose for just user names and full appointment. That seems more like seeking congratulations than sharing information.

    Maplerock,

    I knew I had seen the term "full appointment" before. As you can see from the below quote from a previous post, Objee used that term, and considering he/she is from Admissions, I would guess the term is appropriately used. Again, we are new at this. Any helpful advice you may have is always appreciated.

    From Objee

    I would think that LOAs would be reviewed early in the board process.
    We still schedule LOA recipients for review in order of completion, but I believe your daughter (and grevar's son) was reviewed at Admissions Committee today. Both were approved for full appointments, so they should be getting some form of official notification in the near future.
