    Recruited Athlete?

    I don't think service academy athletes officially participate in signing days - I think you can have a ceremony but maybe it's just D3 schools don't have a letter of commitment like D1 schools so it's not really an official signing day

    Not playing a sport

    I have a real problem with any cadet from any service academy quitting their sport for any reason except for an injury or if they were struggling and needed to concentrate on academics. This quitting on the team shows a lack commitment and makes me question what they will do when things get...

    Waiting for waiver?

    My DS is in the same predicament. He submitted the last of the AMI this week for something we shouldn't have had to deal with because he filled out medical forms wrong now we are jumping through hoops. Plan B is a terrible plan but he wanted to be responsible so it's his mistakes to make

    Incorrectly completed medical history (dislocated Vs sprained)

    Is it possible to correct medical history after submitted? My DS has reached out to the DODMERB contact on his correspondence but hasn't heard back. He incorrectly said he dislocated his shoulder two years ago but in reality it was only sprained and didn't require any medical attention. Now...

    CGAS Prep School

    Here's a dumb question. If you get selected to go to prep school is it 100% paid for by the federal government? Also, if you don't get into the academy next year I assume the credits transfer to another school so you wouldn't repeat freshman year??

    recruited athlete ???

    I am reaching way back but have first hand knowledge about this. I was recruited to play soccer at West Point back in the late 90's and the academy and coach played a huge role in securing an appointment/nomination from my congressman. I personally never met him prior to receiving a nomination.

    4/c at CGA. Ask any questions!

    That brings up a good question. Is baseball at CGA considered a spring sport? Do cadets participating in baseball actually have a traditional spring break or are they doing team activities?

    My DS submitted his EA on the last or 2nd to last possible day for EA and received conditional acceptance on 11/21 or 11/22. I would have to look back in the 🐻 den. He is a recruited athlete so don't know if that bumps up the review time

    The decision letter was posted in his Bear Den. I will admit he had told me about it before today I just didn't know if he knew exactly what he was looking for so I asked him for his login information
