    Still in the game

    Encouragement Last year DS received TWE in April. We shared the same roller coaster of emotions many of you are feeling. We were never sure of where he fell short. DS pursued plan C and chose to reapply. He challenged himself to be one year better. This meant another year of emotions and...

    Verbal commitment Friend has Junior DD being recruited by USNA. How can she verbally commit this early when an appointment is not guaranteed? The admissions/nomination processes are much different than regular schools. If she verbally commits early to USNA and does not receive an appointment...

    DS Reapplying - CGO/RD info underwhelming

    Similar response DS had almost identical scenario but stronger academics plus leadership. Our district is very competitive so hoping for good position in national pool. We did hear that more appointments were given to under represented regions this year. Not sure if that was true...
