    Plan B?

    Deposits We had to send in 2 deposits for my sons the other day as emergency backups for the USNA. It wasn't the cost of the deposits that bothered me, but both boys rec'd full scholarships, so I feel like we are taking money away from others. The baseball coach from that college is also...

    USNA I-day Countdown

    What is CABS? Did anyone receive the Permit to Report forms yet? I've read some posts about people accessing the CABS system, but the directions say that one should have received the Permit first. Anyone have any info?

    IRS question

    I never thought of this before, and someone at work asked me the other day. Can my husband and I still claim my sons as dependents even though they will be at USNA starting on July 1? It seems as though we still provide support/financial etc., so it never crossed my mind. Thanks for any info.

    TWINS I'm the mother of the twins (boys) who are both going to USNA!! We officially (and very sadly) notified the USCGA immediately once the boys decided to accept their appointments to USNA. It was so difficult to send in the declination letter after stalking the mailman daily for months. AIM...

I want to make sure that I get a timely appt. with eye doctor so that the form can be submitted on time.

    Waiver Denied (USMMA)????

    Don't give up USMMA is awesome and really worked with my son to get his waiver. They are wonderful there in admissions, and I'm sure that they'll help you to overturn this. I was recently contacted by a person who was denied his waiver request 3 times, before eventually receiving it. Good...

    Principal nomination, tripler Q= appointment?

    Clarification So Princ. Nom with 3Q could still mean a NAPS offer and not an appointment? Didn't really think of that scenario, so I'll be interested to hear from others if this is confirmed, or if I am reading it wrong.

    Vision standards cga vs. usna

    Vision not correctable to 20/20? If they(USNA) give 20-24 color def. waivers per year, does anyone know how many waivers they grant for not correcting to 20/20? Read there is a limit, but just curious how many or how often.
