Visited USMMA last week. The admissions counselor said that, for those of us on "Hold", it is "Now a waiting game." A significant number, roughly 30%, of those offered appointments to the Academy end up turning them down for other academies/opportunities. So quite a few of those on the waiting list will probably be offered an appointment before I-day. Good luck to all of those still waiting!Hang in there. Hoping you hear soon!!
DS, who is on "Hold," visited KP last week and confirmed that he is on the "National Wait List." In answer to the question, "How many people are on the NWL?", the RC said "Lots." RC went on to say that "It is basically now a waiting game."This is downright genius.
LOL. I got really excited when I got my first FedEx notice, til I realized it was something I ordered. But it will say what company does the shipping, so you can tell easily how "happy" you will be. In your case, might be equal. Haha!Fed ex delivery manager - enrolled today. At the very least I will know about my wine shipments
Sorry to hear... We are still waiting. Told several times in the past weeks that he's "in a good position," but we're starting to lose hope. If it's a TWE for my DS too, we'll have to stay in touch and keep each other company!Denied today. See you all next year meaning the next few weeks.

agreed! NROTC at SUNY Maritime is THE best possible secondary outcome. I am happily filling out mountains of paperwork at the moment. He says he will reapply to USNA and USMMA but I know he's going to love SUNY. I had such a good feeling when we visited and he was full of talk on our ride home. He and I both admit that this had a slightly stronger sting than the USNA turn down but I am thankful that we aren't waiting anymore. Such a weight has been lifted and he's back to laughing and joking rather than waiting and worrying!
That bottle of Champagne that I have been saving will finally be opened tonight and we will celebrate! It's Bollinger. It is our honorary Champagne because it was saved from destruction by Patton's Third Army. My father in law, the handsome devil on the left hand side of my screen picture was there. The retreating Germans were in the process of rigging the winery with explosives when 3rd army arrived. They were in the right place at the right time. For this and many other reasons, I don't believe that it is cliché to say that everything happens for a reason Good luck to everyone still in the running!!
