    WRT Parents' group -

    The muddying of the lines may stem from the fact there is a parents' group that works closely with the USMMA Alumni Assn and Foundation, itself an independent, non-Federal, non-profit organization.

    http://www.usmmaaf.com/s/1175/hybrid/social.aspx?sid=1175&gid=1&pgid=309


    The Academies themselves, as government organizations, don't have parents' groups, to the best of my knowledge. They are prohibited from official endorsement or support. The same is true at USNA. The USNA Alumni Association is an independent non-profit, which has a parents' program coordinator, who works with independent USNA Parents Clubs. I believe the USNA Alumni Association hosts various FB pages and does their best to post accurate info. But it is not USNA, the DOD entity, who has any official connection to parents' organizations or social media sites.

    I thought I should provide an update...as of 4/18/17, my son has officially accepted his appointment to USMMA! He's #10 on the appointee list above :)

    Got hotel booked for both Indoc and Parent's Weekend...we're all in now!

    A little updating and color coding so we can all see who is on the ship, on the fence, or jumped overboard. :)

    Update: Yes, he had a 3Q NWL letter. The MOC finally called last night. Still no BFE but it is on the way. It appears that they are now going through the lists of those appointments that were not accepted and now offering to those on the NWL list. It appears that our son filled a vacancy from the VA wait list according to the MOC. I have no idea. Funny thing is the portal is still not updated but we received the acceptance/non-acceptance reply letter from admissions due 1 May. Very confusing process. He has accepted and emailed back the form. This school was his first choice.

    For you applicants and parents, hang in there. It's a grueling wait but worth it and there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    I don't know if things have changed since DS accepted, but you should also FAX your Acceptance to Admissions.
    (They did not accept emails then)
    This way there will be a Time-stamp on the letter.
    Fax: 516-773-5390
    Then Call and Verify that they got it!

    congrats 1842. I believe we mailed, faxed and fedexed the signed acceptance--just in case.

    After you send in your acceptance, you will see your portal change to "accepted" very quickly in red letters right at the top.
