    USNA Class of 2025 Appointments Update-Entire-List-Yourself

    This will be my last appointment cycle with the forums. My last and final Mid was appointed this year. I would tend to agree with going back to the old copy and paste model. I'm sure there are data scientists and numbers crunchers who will call me a relic, but there was something a little...

    Thank you Rainman! Where did you find that info?

    I-Day

    OK, just to confirm where we think we are with I-Day, subject to change, nothing written in pen, semper gumby, etc. Would I be correct in believing that our current, collective wisdom is that: 1. Our plebes will be getting a date/time for their drop off slot; 2. The I-Day drop offs will be on...

    USNA 2025 Waiting and....Waiting

    I did notice that. It’s kind of strange. This is my third year through this process with my kids and in years past there was much more diversity of geography. We are from California and I do not see a lot of Californians, or west coasters generally.

    I-Day

    I note that it says "29 June -- 30 June" on the front page, but also states that the specific time and date to report will be received in the future.

    I-Day

    I know this is off topic completely, but our DS actually got confronted plebe year by an enlisted guy at BWI. The guy accused our son of “stolen valor” for flying in uniform when he thought our son didn’t have to. He threatened to “report” him. Our son explained that he was just a plebe, and...

    I-Day

    Hahaha. Yes, we spent 4 years on the pointy end of “total flexibility.” I became pretty sure that there was a shadow council of Admirals just waiting for us to board a flight, wheels up, before they strategically canceled whatever event that inspired our trip. And, I’m convinced weekend liberty...

    I-Day

    I’ve been seeing some discussion of a change of date for I-Day. Instead of July 1, which is still on the academic calendar, some are hearing that it might be June 29. Does anyone have any solid info on that? We have to fly, so moving things around is a bit of an exercise, but this is our...

    College Re-applicants

    Completely agree. Our DS hasn’t missed a class or an assignment (or so he says), and has actually told me to stop bugging him about the Naval Academy because he has work to be done at his current school. When I go back and look at reality vs. what I posted, I think I am the one who has lost...

    College Re-applicants

    Agreed completely, and the question was far more hypothetical than based on actual events. My understanding is that he is doing well and, perhaps most importantly, using this semester to learn. I was just curious as how USNA treats it. Thank you for the clarification.

    College Re-applicants

    So, for college re-applicants who have been appointed . . . do second semester grades matter? Does continuing the current semester matter? Our son is a plebe to be and will definitely be finishing his second semester, but I know he's having a hard time focusing.

    Criminal Record Report

    My son is a plebe-to-be. His older brother commissioned from USNA in 2019, which means he was a plebe in 2015. At that time, I recall we had to get something from our local police stating that he did not have a criminal record. Is that still part of the process? If so, is it a form that the...
