    Phone call time frame for this Sunday.....

    Update I received a letter from my plebe yesterday. It seems that I company will be calling home at 2 pm eastern time. If times are different for other companies it may be nice to go ahead and post them for the parents who have not received that letter with the time of their phone call.

    Does anyone know what the time frame is for our plebes to call home this Sunday? I remember with my other two it was like 4pm - 6pm, but I was told this by a letter. I haven't received any letter this time for stating what the time frame is. Thank you in advance for your help.

    Cell Phone Coverage?

    Both of my mids have verizon. Neither one have ever had any problems with their service (calling, texting and emailing) and they are at two different sides of bancroft. One of my mids even has our sling box coming through his blackberry so he never misses his favorite show or favorite team...

    My daughter received a letter the first week of May. She was accepted early but I did not send in her money until the cut off date (I was waiting to see if her doctor would clear her due to surgery). You will need a letter that you should receive soon along with a Photo ID to get onto the...

    Navysupporter- Same thing happened to my daughter. My daughter emailed the academy with her new ACT and SAT scores. They sent back a note saying that they would put them in her file but the Summer Seminar decision will be based off her SS application scores. Funny thing is she received an...

    Backup College

    Keeping a back up plan wouldn't be such a bad idea. I know this past I-Day there were 6 plebes detained in Alumni Hall for medical problems. They only kept 2 and denied the other 4 their appointments due to medical problems. One of them thought he had a sprained wrist from playing a game of...
