    My senator just called me to congratulate me on my appointment last Friday and it showed up on the website as the official appointment. Very excited!

    Congratulations UFDMD. Please let us know if you have any questions so we can help your son decide if Kings Point is right for him. I would highly recommend a visit if he has not already been there.

    Congratulations on your appointment, readytolead. Might be a good idea to change your mindset to readytolearntolead before you arrive at an academy. As I tell all undecided appointees, try to visit Kings Point if you can before you make up your mind. Best wishes!

    Copied the list of appointments from when #12 added their appointment and added @readytolead while keeping the information people have posted on the appointment list. Not sure why @FMHS-79 has changed the list and taken out some of the self posted information? Congrats to @readytolead!

    FYI - see post #2 and #37 of this thread - removed district to help maintain anonymity and tweaked others to maintain consistency. But, I'll leave it to others who have a closer relationship to the USMMA...

    Lots of Undecideds. I'm curious why - was USMMA not your first choice for an appointment? I really recommend visiting the school if you can to give you a better idea of what the Academy is about, and speaking to students while you're there may help too. All of us are a great resource too but I think visiting the school would be invaluable.

    What happened, Bizzy, that you went from Accepted to Declined? Good luck to you on the journey you've decided on.

    My number one school, Air Force Academy offered me an appointment. I should have put undecided on the first post as I was waiting for USAFA. I visited USMMA and it is a great school. My heart was just with USAFA.

    They are still working, however they may be short a few heads. Some departments are running on personnel since many people are furloughed. Should be still operating as usual though.

    Historically a number of appointments come out next month and March.
