    Is it just me, or do the BFE comments and appointments notifications seem to be extra quiet this past week? WAITING, WAITING, WAITING.....:eek:

    Congratulations to your DD. My DS has heard from one SA so far, but really wants to hear either way from USNA. If USNA is not the place where God wants him to be, we will understand. His will, not ours!

    Our congressman called DS on Feb 12th and notified him of appointment. Still waiting to receive BFE from USNA.

    Gotta wonder if USNA admissions might be the masters of the process of "batching." Watching it over the seasons, the news seems to go in fits and starts.

    It's because the board meets on a ship in the mid-Atlantic, with no comm - their mission being so secretive. So when the ship finally gets back to port there is a flood of notifications - and then silence again. I'm hoping they are not hit by the sequester and unable to return.

    Still haven't seen any Secnav nominations from the thread. Are there usually not that many that post?

    "Most MOC's" don't do anything in sync or similarly, as we're seeing in DC.:thumbdown:

    Might we wish the sequester would cut those 535 slots first. :thumb:

    Ah, to be so blessed ... :confused:

    Saint,

    Our MOC called this past Monday night at 2030. My son was at work, wife took the call and almost fainted.

    She asked me, "should we wait for him to get home?"

    I just looked at her and asked, "how many times has congress called the house personally?"

    She immediately texted him the phone number and told him to go outside and call. Ten minutes later, he called back, screaming over the phone!

    We are so blessed!

    I received a SecNav nomination and also a nomination from my Congressman. My Congressman's office called and informed me of my appointment so I'm guessing USNA used my Congressional one instead of my SecNav. Have any other priors heard back yet?
