    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

    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.

    Confirming a Nomination

    Is there any way to confirm that an MOC (or other) has nominated a candidate? Does that show up in the candidate's portal? Our current applicant has an older brother who graduated/commissioned last year but I don't recall ever seeing written confirmation of his nomination 4/5 years ago...

    Title IX

    Probably a dumb question, but here goes. My understanding is that military academies are exempt from Title IX. If that's true, and if that means that military academies can offer as many "scholarships" to male athletes as female athletes, is there a reason why USNA does not have, for example...
