Hi all - I have a question for the forum...my son was invited to a candidate visit back in March but then had the visit rescinded as he was also invited to summer seminar. Via e-mail, the administration office indicated that even though his candidate visit would be given to someone who was not invited to summer seminar, he would receive an invitation for a candidate visit in the fall. He received his candidate visit invitation and confirmation in July. His candidate visit is scheduled for October 17th. We have already made reservations for the whole family to go to Annapolis and he is very excited to be able to spend time in the classroom. However, we received an e-mail a few minutes ago indicated that candidate visits are normally for applicants who do not get an invitation to summer seminar so they would like to give his spot to someone else unless there are "extenuating circumstances." He is going to be crushed. Can anyone tell me if this has ever happened to them and if anyone knows what "extenuating circumstances" means? He has until tomorrow at 3:00 eastern to respond before they remove his name from the list. It seems to me that is inevitable that they will no longer offer the visit, which will cause a "They don't want me" conversation I would really like to avoid. Any insight would be great.
