As far as notification goes, does the Admissions Office normally call the Applicant, do they find out via mail, from the Nominating authority, or from the Portal? Or does it always vary? We found out about ds's acceptance from the Congressman's Office last Thursday, but the portal doesn't say "Principal". Our portal went from "Application on File" to blank last week. We haven't actually heard anything from the USMMA about ds's acceptance, but apparently there is a loa in the mail. I am super excited, but a little bit skeptical until we actually hear/see something from the USMMA. I was curious how the applicant is normally informed of their acceptance, it might help some folks that are waiting on the edge of their seats, pacing circles around their mailboxes, or being startled everytime the phone rings. Also, if anyone reads this that was offered the NMMI Prep Slot when they were embarking on this journey with the USMMA, and you wouldn't mind mentoring a newby-- will you message me?
