    lack of leadership

    Agree with @A1Janitor regarding Boys/Girls state. Also, you could create a club at your school or set up a charity drive.

    AMI updates - anyone?

    Tried that first. Earliest we could fine one in an 1hr radius is 3 months out. I’m still trying though.

    AMI updates - anyone?

    My DS received a response in early August (prob right around 8/16ish). He provided all the required information & then questioned their initial DQ. DS didn’t agree w/ rejection (appeared DODMERB used different dates? Idk but it didn’t make any sense). After the initial follow up, they sent a new...

    Triple qualified letter

    "Please submit a MFR stating no symptoms or medication..."

    Congressional Interview

    Tips - find someone to “interview” you, preferably a teacher, mentor or parent. Have them ask you questions around the following (first link): why a SA, why this particular SA, an example of how you exhibited leadership, etc… Try to stick to a STAR format as best as you can but don’t stress...

    Competitive District?

    How would I know if DS lives in a competitive district? I have read a handful of threads that discuss the challenges of living in one but I can’t tell if it applies to our district. We’ve tried researching it but either we are not using the right search words or it’s just something that is known...

    LOE received but already had an LOA.. does this supersede the LOA ?

    Thank you for sharing. My son received both - first the LOA & then the LOE. I understand the goal is the appointment but was definitely confused as what it meant and if one supersedes the other.
