    Does anyone have any insight as to when the USNA Foundation students will be notified of their appointments (or lack thereof)?

    Any sense as to how many appointment slots these appointments will absorb?

    Are they charged against MOC's / other nomination sources or are they taken against the Super's?

    If I recall, it was about this time last year when formal notifications were given.

    Any information you have would be appreciated. Thank you. Seahorse

    I got a nice big white envelope from the foundation, with an application to fill out. It's only 3 pages or something like that and can be done in five minutes. They called me to say I had been accepted about a week after I mailed in my app, so it wasn't too long of a wait. The letter that came with it stated that the Admission Board recommends about 200 names to the Foundation each year and the Foundation takes about 50 each year. So getting the package doesn't automatically guarantee sponsorship. That was back in February and I have yet to hear anything back from USNA no TWE or BFE.

    Thanks Commando.

    I was more curious about this year's Foundation students, and the timing of appointments being made.

    With all the talk of appointments / acceptances on other threads... I was wondering if these have kicked in yet, because if they have, that leaves fewer and fewer slots available for others who are going through the "normal" process (not including NAPS). Good luck your sponsorship and / or BFE. Seahorse.

    Given that I have presented the certificates to Foundation students who had received appointments during awards ceremonies in May, I would venture that the end of April is a likely time for appointments to be sent out. Just a casual observation, however. Best wishes to the Foundation preppers who are making the daily treks to their mailboxes.

    Congratulations (!) and questions (?) about USNA Foundation

    Congratulations Republic_Commando on your USNA Foundation prep offer and acceptance!! DS sent his 3 pages of forms/application the day after he received them - and the Foundation office received the packet this past Friday (according to the FedEx tracking status). I see from your post that you received your acceptance call from Foundation about a week after you sent your application!! Wonderful!!! I sent you a PM about the school choice portion of this process. Again, CONGRATULATIONS - be proud!!!
