    Medical Advice Needed

    @KBM As stated before have realistic expectations. IMHO the chances are slim. First he will be automatically DQ'd due to the asthma issue and the inhaler use. Second, the persistent cough and surgery at 15 will probably be a DQ. Even saying this if he has a strong application any or all of the...

    Have you ever heard of USMA contacting and offering

    WOW!!! :spacecraft:This sounds very strange. At USNA everyone goes through the process. If this is true USMA must really be hurting for quality candidates. I am aware of two other males who have better credentials than this female. I guess there are boxes USMA needs to check. IMHO if a...

    Have you ever heard of USMA contacting and offering

    Last night a neighbor told me that their daughter received an unsolicited email and phone call from USMA offering to fly her and one parent to USMA for a weekend visit. The student is a minority, two sport athlete (not a recruited athlete). Has any one ever heard of this...

    Is there any advantage to applying to USNA early?

    @ThePatternisFull Agree 100%. I am amazed that many posters must live on the forum. I have many times had to correct the misinformation given. Some from older folks who claim to have inside info and more recently those who are new and want to give their opinions. From here on out I wish everyone...

    Appointment acccepted then turned down

    @GaitherDad sorry this is not civilian life. YOU DO NOT BREAK THE CHAIN OF COMMAND! As others have stated call admissions and speak with your BGO. It is possible BGO can assist and his AC could also.

    School Superitendent's Son

    My information on the points awarded for Eagle Scout and Boys State is from USNA BGO meeting last year. I agree USNA has not published WCS algorithm yet last year a BGO asked and they stated it was worth the same as an Eagle Scout +500 points. The question is is the Superintendent using his...

    School Superitendent's Son

    Penalized no. Yet when he is appointed by teachers (not elected by his peers) who report to his father there is an apparent conflict of interest. If it was my son/daughter applying to USNA would it be a conflict for me to interview other candidates they may be competing against? Candidate who...

    School Superitendent's Son

    You made my point. Candidate #1 was denied by the school then applied to local American Legion and then sees the Superintendent's son at the camp. Coincidence? Just many things not lining up or passing the smell test.

    School Superitendent's Son

    @Mr2020 I know USNA looks extremely favorable on candidates who attend Boys State. The other SA's do also. Last year I know personally 3 MIDNS who attended Boys State and One of them Bpys Nation attendee too!. All 3 ranked in top 20 of class of 2019. So I must politely disagree with your comment...

    School Superitendent's Son

    Wow! Did I hit a nerve? Sorry if I did @GaitherDad . Just as a side note Boys State gets a candidate as many points on a SA app as an Eagle Scout does. A SA application specifically asked about Boys State and Boys Nation and awards points to a candidates WCS by attending one or both. I did...

    School Superitendent's Son

    I get it. Yet the point that I must not be getting across is that Candidate #1 went out of his way to get to Boys State and Supe's son was put in over other possibly more qualified students or the guess is that it was not even offered to others. There are only 2 attendees at Boys State.

    School Superitendent's Son

    @Old Navy BGO There have not been any accusations or conclusions. I simply was stating what was conveyed to me and asking for advice. After thinking about this "YES" I do believe the Superintendent did use his position to get his son into Boys State and the NHS is a position appointed by the...
