    Family Funerals during BCT

    I had a similar situation - my grandfather passed while I was at AROTC Advanced Camp. I was given 2 options: take a few hours to process and return to camp, or go home and recycle (basically start fresh later in the summer). I was more than halfway through the five-week adventure and did not...

    Your Son/Daughter is Going Where?? Round 2

    We had our first experience with a stranger commenting on our DD’s choice for college. Mind you, DD is an appointee and not officially in yet. We attended a performance when a 91 year-old woman struck up a conversation. Got to talking and she asks where DD is going to college. We responded...

    When will BFEs be sent out?

    DD got an appointment in her portal the same day her BFE arrived. We are fairly close to West Point so that probably was a factor. It was awesome because she had no idea what was coming and it was an absolute surprise.

    CFT still not posted

    DD’s CFA took 4 or 5 months to change from yellow to green. She was told multiple different people must review and verify and to be patient. Videos always showed as green.

    R251.16 remedial

    Good afternoon, My DD received notification in DoDMERB that she needs: R251.16. When filling out the medical forms, she indicated she does not have an IEP. She has never had an IEP so we are a little confused as to why this statement would be needed. Thank you! P.S. I did google...

    Question about low ACT score

    We bought our DD official SAT and ACT study books. We also bought math and science specific ones since she’s strong in English and reading. She took the practice tests and read why she got things wrong. Helped considerably as she went up 3 points in each subject.
