I am not sure that this thread is the place for this, but I just wanted to thank everyone on SAF, not only in the USCGA forum but those in the others as well. Everyone with whom I have communicated, as well as those I have not communicated with, have helped me to an unimaginable extent during the admissions process following the submission of my application to the USCGA c/o 2026. Unfortunately, I did not receive an appointment, and I would like to wish the best for all others experiencing the same, as well as for those accepted, those deferred to RD, and those applying RD to begin with. Just a few years ago I would have never imagined I'd be applying to a service academy, but the process in itself has truly allowed me to learn and grow. I aspire to pursue a commissioning in the United States Coast Guard in the future, and I wish to meet some of you in real life one day, hopefully in the Coast Guard blues. As many times I have said it before, good luck to all wherever you may end up in the future!
