    Boys State Canceled

    Our state's Boys State has cancelled. Girls State is still scheduled. My DD was accepted to GS. If it does get cancelled, I would think she would still qualify as a GS Attendee.

    Time to throw in the towel

    DD received LOA a year ago this coming Monday followed by appointment the following Monday. Keep up the hope. The Supe has stated admissions is a priority. With all that is going on, I have to think the process is still slowed slightly. Good Luck!!!

    Plebe Parent Weekend arrival date?

    We arrived Wednesday. I hate crowds and like to get things in, prior to crowds. Annapolis is such a cool and charming town along with the Yard, you can always find something to do. We were fortunate as a family to spend extra time on the Yard leading up to I-Day, so in hind site, we probably...

    I-Day Preparation

    I'm curious what you mean by strict. Can you clarify? Fairly certain no med of any kind are allowed OTC or otherwise. The PTR will out line it for you. If I remember correctly, DD brought her one prescription. She turned it in and she was given new prescription and meds on I Day.

    Sick at I Day

    I don't know the answer to your questions but it is ironic. The illness rate for plebes is extremely high during plebe summer. Plebe hack, (mono, etc) runs rampant through the class every summer. I'm guessing illness hits at least 60%, and I am being extremely conservative. DD did not get...

    NASS Travel

    Yes, it's very straight forward. Get your bag and look for the Mid/Mids. They will get you on a bus with others and head to the Yard.

    Letter of Assurance!!

    Congrats! My DD received an LOA on March 21st last year. Same as you, portal did not list any further requirements. She contacted admission and did not hear back. On March 28th her portal stated she had received an appointment. No guarantee yours will go the same way, but this was her...
