My DS received an invite to a CVW today via email. We visited his freshman year and did the tour and admissions briefing. He visited with my dad this past March and met with a plebe we know and toured the Yard. Then he attended NASS. He also received a LOA Sept. 1. What are most candidates' experiences? Is it bad to not accept? He wants to go, but coming from Chicago, it'll be expensive, and if he's already gung ho and has a LOA, then that'll be a consideration. Is it OK if parents don't attend? It would be considerably more expensive, but I would feel bad if he were the only one there without his parents.
