    Rejection from West Point...

    You have to look at the whole person, not just the ACT score. I'm sure you are talking about my DS who got into USMAPS with a 27 ACT/1230 SAT, 3.8 GPA, but that is his only weak spot and that is why he was admitted. He attends a very competitive department of defense school in Germany made up of...

    My DS is looking to connect with some USMAPS cadets. He is the only one of his friends going to the prep school at WP. Several of his friends are going to the Academy and to civil prep, but none to USMAPS. His will be a professor at USMA starting in June and we lived there for 5 years when he...

    Got accepted into the SS, need help paying?

    DS got accepted to USMA Summer Seminar and we booked his ticket from NY to FL. Then found out one week late he got accepted to NASS. We had to eat the flight and book another flight so that he could go to both back to back. That was quite expensive without having budgeted for it. The things we...

    USAFA Prep School Class of 2019?

    My DS was actually very happy to get USMAPS over a direct appointment and would have even chosen it over any other direct appointment. He spent 5 years of his life at USMA when his dad was an admissions officer. It's always been home to my kids even though we have lived in Germany for 7 years...

    We are in the same boat with HOR, state we are from, where his DL is from, and where we live now. The difference is that DS is reporting from Germany so we aren't sure what HOR to put. His dad's HOR is FL, DS's DL is from there, and his diad currently lives in FL until he moves to NY in June...

    At least for my area and my congressman, knowing the actually senator/representative has absolutely no bearing on nominations. The congressman/woman hires a committee who are normally vets, active-duty, or just local businessmen. These people interview and score your package as a whole and the...
