    Overnight Visit

    I didn't think it paled - I loved it. Felt that it was a complete fit for DS. When he told me how disappointed he was, I was shocked. You're right, Highland Falls isn't downtown Annapolis, but in my opinion the individual, hands-on, action of USMA is much more a fit for him. That's why I'm...

    Overnight Visit

    DS has a 2nd Class brother at USNA. Got a TWE last year and reapplied to both USNA and USMA this past year. Received an appointment to USMA and had an overnight visit last week. He was excited, thought that WP was probably where he fit better since he is wanting to go infantry/Marines/special...

    Im not happy....

    As of DS's overnight visit last week, rumors were rampant, and according to plebes, no one had been disciplined. Rumor was that it was not just cocaine use, but dealing from the barracks.

    Is my understanding correct?

    DS has a USMA appointment. Visit did not go well. Has a mid brother at USNA now and status on portal still says "complete pending review". Pretty sure via our parents club that MOC vacancy went to someone else so assuming he is NWL. He reapplied after a TWE last year - went to college and took...
