  1. Q

    Being recruited for sports, how does that work?

    Face time with the coaches helps a lot also. Get to their camps early if you can. The sooner you get on their radar the better!

    So status for my DS now shows - LOA-CFA, NOM, No MED. He has a waiver from USAFA but haven't gotten it from USMMA yet. Does this mean he's accepted pending a med waiver?

    Any one? Any one? Bueller... Bueller...

    There doesn't seam to be much going on with USMMA lately. No new appointments? No chatter? We were led to believe that after January 31st things would get kicked into high gear with admissions clearing out everyone without a nomination. Is this normal for things to be so quiet? Just curious.

    official visit

    It was very good. We got to spend time with quite a few of the current Plebes and 1C1's that are playing football. Interestingly, the Plebes all told him to go Air Force but everyone else told him Sea Year and football make everything else worth it and to choose KP. The coaches and other...

    Chances for Acceptance

    We are here at KP on a visit with my DS right now. We spent the entire day talking with current students and admissions folks. We had lunch with the Regiment. They only accept 250 out of over 7000 applicants. Based on what I've seen in your posts and my observations from today I would...
