Gala, hang in there, all of our kids are in that same situation with similar stats. Don't expect to hear anything until March. If sooner, then great! Good luck to your son. Tell him to enjoy senior year!My son and I are getting very anxious about his application status and wondering what is going on. He is checking his email every hour for the past couple of months. Last document was submitted July 08, nomination received July 19 for "children of deceased or disabled veterans." CFA was taken at NASS with very competitive results. Medical was cleared on Sep 26. His SAT is good (760 math and 700 englishl), GPA 3.65 unweighted with AP and honors classes. Lettered in 3 sports his junior year, football, wrestling and track. Member of the symphonic and jazz bands. Wrestling captain last year and will be this year as well. Just wonder why we had to rush so much to submit all the documents and it has been over 3 months now since all the documents were submitted, but medical. Is it ok to contact the admission consular, and if yes, what to ask? please give us some words of wisdom. Thanks!

First thing I can think of is that DS should stop checking his email every hour. He should be prepared to wait until the very last day in mid-April. I know that is not what he (or you) wants to hear, but it happens. If you end up hearing something sooner, great! This advice is coming from a parent of a son who was turned down the last possible day in mid-April a couple of years ago.please give us some words of wisdom.
You didn't have to rush to submit...applications aren't due until end of January. Be patientJust wonder why we had to rush so much to submit all the documents and it has been over 3 months now since all the documents were submitted
I have to agree with old Navy BGO on this. They way I understand it from a classmate who is a Regional BGO coordinator and has several former USNA admissions staff as BGOs in his area, a junior officer in admissions - I assume this to be an admissions counselor, otherwise who? - briefs the candidate's record to the admissions board just like in a selection board in the fleet.For clarification...the Admissions counselors review records for completeness, but, typically, do not brief the records. Each Admissions Board member receives a certain amount of records (once released by the regional Admissions team), which is then briefed (weekly) to the entire board and voted on.
