    This week I received an appointment to civil prep and in the letter it stated that accepting does not affect your chances of still being appointed this year. I am curious, do civil prep appointees still get a TWE for closure? When would I find out that I absolutely will not be accepted for 2021? Any info appreciated.

    I'm mainly asking because the letter had some uncertainty and said something along the lines that "you may still receive an appointment for this cycle." Unfortunately my RC is not readily able to communicate

    That's a good question. I wonder too. Maybe ask the RC?

    BTW, USMA21, if you accept the offer there is a Facebook page for all AOGers and parents.

    I'm thinking based on portal stating " Offered Appointment to Civil Prep" that the TWE won't come. They made an offer of appointment just to civil prep rather than direct.

    @USMA21 I think it is highly unlikely that you will get a direct appointment this year but there is always a possibility. They start shifting around nominations and slates. You should plan on taking the civilian prep scholarship and get ready to start with your classmates next fall. It will be a great experience that will prepare you for your entrance with the class of 2022.

    There are crazy exceptions every year about the person called two days before R-Day, but those are just that. The worse that happens is that you are all ready to go off to prep school and get a direct appointment/

    I never got a TWE, but Civil Prep was the best decision I made. Congrats!

    An update for those others that received a Prep offer this year don't lose hope it is still possible to get in this year. I got a call from my senator this morning telling me I was appointed!
