    I have not received a rejection letter yet, and I haven't received a nomination. Does that automatically mean I am rejected or should I wait for the rejection letter?

    You could receive a TWE. You could be in the running for NAPS/Foundation (for which no nom is needed). You could receive an appointment/WL via the VP nom or maybe Supe's nom (although those are used VERY rarely).

    First two scenarios are most likely, but you don't know until you get the official notice.

    Same spot you're in!! The exact same situation. I'm praying very hard for both of us and all other candidates. Hope to hear soon!

    Foundation offer came via a phone call from USNA Admissions to my DS on a Sunday late morning-we had just come home from church. This was two years ago . And that call came on the "magic" April 15th date to boot! Exactly one year later - again April 15 - while DS was finishing up his Foundation sponsored prep year at NMMI MOC called out to New Mexico and told DS he had earned an appointment to USNA! And now almost exactly one year later DS is successfully completing plebe year and looking forwArd to Herndon!

    Moral of this story: When "they" say April 15 is the deadline for hearing USNA news they mean it! Even if it's a Sunday!!

    Good luck to you all still waiting!

    Great story! (DD is also a Plebe this year). I think the last-minute decisions are a good introduction to life at USNA and life in the Navy. Flexibility and a positive attitude are key (not only for the MIDNs, but also for parents)(MIDNs are more important). From the parent's perspective, I have finally adopted the catch phrase "Semper Gumby!" :smile:
