    Thoughts on chances of receiving USNA appointment this late in the game? DD and mom anxious to know. I understand any comments and thoughts posted are pure speculation, however speculation is part of the fun.

    SKC-

    I am in the exact same situation as you are. finished everything up in late january or early february. I have received two nominations and have still not yet heard anything regarding the details of my admissions. Waiting is by far the worst part!

    At this point in the game, the odds are likely against any single person receiving an appointment, although I'm sure there's still probably a few hundred left to go out. Don't lose hope, guys!

    I just recently completed my DoDMERB earlier this week. Could this be a reason as to why I am still waiting?

    Honestly, it's something of an educated guess. For WP, they have already issued more appointments than slots, according to an MALO, and that was a month ago....by now WP is pretty much done, I'm sure. I would assume the same is true for Navy. I'm not a BGO though, just an appointee, so take what I say for what it's worth...not much.

    It is true that WP is finished offering. However, Navy is usually done around April 15th, from what my B & G officer tells me.

    take note of opening thread.....understand all comments and thoughts are pure speculation. Nothing is over until the TWE sings or the BFE arrives!!!

    keep the faith

    A BGO told me a couple days ago that the USNA is running a bit slow this year, they'll still all be mailed by 4/15.

    Anecdotally, this year seems slower than last. Whether it's snow, more applications or something else . . . don't know.

    NORMALLY, there are more TWEs than Appointments at this point in the process. However, this year, I'm seeing many more (well-qualified) candidates with no determination as of today -- recognizing BGOs are the LAST to knows so the candidates may already know -- than in years past.

    I would be very surprised if everyone doesn't hear something by April 15. Remember that some people will likely be waitlisted. If you're waitlisted, definitely proceed w/Plan B. If an appointment comes, so be it.

    As the father of a Foundation Scholarship student I can tell you they've been told they will not hear anything until April 1st, or a few days later...

    Most mids I've spoken to got appointed this late. That gues doesn't go along with the past facts.

    When I attended the CVW, I asked a number of mids and plebes when they heard from admissions. Some said they were recruited, others heard in late winter, and some heard in April. There is obviously not a given numerical value to the amount of appointments received in this part of the cycle, but candidates definitely receive BFEs in April. Not everyone knows about this website either, try searching on facebook for like "USNA class of 2014". You can see all the recent appointments on there. Don't be discouraged!

    P.S. Here is one of the FB groups I mentioned... enjoy!

    I am not sure if this helps anyone, but I was told today by folks at USNA that there are 2000 more applications for admission this year than last year.
