    Daughter is on wait list. I am guessing that if you are going to get off the wait list it will most likely happen within the first 3 weeks of May. I say that because of other applicants applying to other service academies or colleges are being asked to choose before May 1.

    Does anyone know if the notification process is different for wait list candidates? Is it a big envelope, or a phone call? Do you have a week (or less) to decide.

    Just thankful we are still in the game.:cool:

    Congratulations on your daughter being wait-listed! That is closer than

    others got to THE DREAM. I hope you get the great news sooner rather than later... I wish I could advise you on the timing, but I have no knowledge. Just wanted you to know that you were "heard" and that there is empathy for your painful wait!

    Blessings.

    If we're able to offer them an appointment, we will call wait list candidates and the appointment package will follow in the mail. We like to know if they're going to accept or decline as soon as possible, but officially they still have two weeks (from date of notification) to decide.

    Good luck! I am crossing my fingers for you. The wait is almost over, and hopefully it will end with an appointment. :smile:

    If not, what are your daughter's plans? If it is her dream, I hope she reapplies...it worked for my boy. :thumb:

    Just checked - yes, a change to May 7. Hate to get hopes up as prior changes did not mean big white envelope:cool:

    Still waiting

    My son jumps every time the phone rings. He did everything he could to improve his chances. Had all professors send in recommendations, update of grades (4.0), Coast Guard Alumni recommendation. He also applied and was accepted to both NMMI and MMI - in the hope that would position him for a CGAS. His hopes are still high - he is an optimist at heart.

    I don't know for sure but I suspect the DODMERB status change doesn't mean anything. The CGA most likely has a long list of names they are going through - I suspect its not an easy job. Good luck to all.

    congratulations to those who received their recent appointments. Just out of curiousity was there any change to their DODMERB status prior to receiving word?
