Can hardly contain ourselves tonight as we came home to a priority mail package from USMA. Thought it would never happen. Needless to say we popped the champagne to celebrate sons offer of admission!

YEAAAAAAAAA:beer1: :band:


Thanks to all who have provided insight and advice through the process!

We believe he will. He also has 4 yr ROTC scholarship offers to his second and third school choices. But USMA is his first choice and we think he'll stay with it.

He is still trying to digest this as all three of these offers came today. What a night!!:eek:
