    The long wait... (Just a vent post)

    I have just received my medical waiver for West Point after waiting patiently for roughly 2.5 months. Now that I am 3q'd, all I have to do is wait for a response until May. Waiting feels more nerve-racking than being in an interview. Although I am a bit late to the race, I hope there's still a...

    Appointment notification via COVID vaccination email?

    I got an email from West Point telling me to get vaccinated. This normally wouldn’t seem unusual, but the email’s wording made it seem like I was offered an appointment (I checked on my candidate portal and there’s nothing mentioning an appointment)… Can somebody please tell me if this is an...

    Why did you choose a service academy?

    I am thinking about applying to a SA, more specifically USAFA. I've done quite a bit of research and know a lot about the SA experience because I used to live right outside of Annapolis.
