Thought I'd start this thread. All the other SA's have one. It's great for everyone to get to know and support each other through a stressful process. And to ask questions. If this is a duplicate of another USNA thread then it will either dry up and go away, or get deleted. I personally am not by any means an expert on the process but I'm sure moderators, BGOs and current mids will check in from time to time to answer questions. My DS has been offered an appointment and we're excited about it. And YES, the bubblewrap is firmly in place, although DS says it chafes a bit Being a former AD Air Force enlisted person I know only a little bit about USNA or the Navy, so I'm hoping discussions here will be of help. Good luck with the stalking!
