# Class 2028 Waitlist

Sadly, I don't think we are getting a call or an update. DS has moved on to plan B but will reapply for next school year. You all are amazing; good luck with your next adventure!

I'm sure you've heard it on here a few times. Those who reapply often get in the second time. Best of luck!

They don't always pull from the waitlist. It depends how many accept from the initial set of offers. They pulled ZERO off the waitlist 4 years ago for the class of 2024, but they've pulled from the waitlist the past 3 years.
Yes, I understand that. I guess I was more asking if with the information given from the poster, that they already had enough for this years class with only half getting waivers.
Some years forty have been called and some none. My question was more based on the information given about waivers.

It's complete speculation, but just doing a little math with the numbers given from the 2028 Lunch and Learn with Cpt. Fredie. He mentioned 316 accepted appointments but 30 conditional and need waivers. It'll pretty much be a moving scale based on how many waivers are granted (and that process seems to still be going on). One extreme, if none of the 30 got waivers, the class would be 284 which is probably a little smallish to start out, so they may round out the class from the waitlist. Other extreme, if all the 30 got waivers (unlikely), 316 would be a huge class!

While building a class is almost an art with all the various things they're looking for, they seem to have the math down to a science when it comes to ending up at a final number.

Thank you! Still hoping!

Best wishes to all staying in the fight.

My son doesn't view his path as "Plan B"; instead, he told us flat out "It's their (USCGA) loss. I'm excited about my school plans and NROTC. This is the path I'm meant to be on."

Congratulations! Be sure to make an add to the appointment thread! It will be a useful data point for future classes who can see that late appointments can and do happen!
