    We'll probably need 400-425 appointments to yield incoming class of 295, so I would expect another 190-200 appointments to be tendered during Regular Admission.

    My DD was RA waitlisted last year.

    After three (I think) waves of appointments spanning February and March, the RA waitlisters were notified right before the posted deadline of appointments. The RA waitlisters and the EA waitlisters were both asked to confirm (or reconfirm) their desire to be on the waitlist. After that, the waitlisters from both groups became one pool. The CGA looked to fill slots based on the needs of the class, not based on when people were added to the waitlist. Not the answer you were hoping for, I'm sure...

    I am amazed at the number of waitlist offers. No wonder DD didn't get pulled last year. However, she is a reapplicant for this year, and last year's Coast Guard Scholars will be applying as well. This is a very competitive process, indeed.

    Wow! Way more than I thought. Plan B in action. My DS had it all ( and more) according to the stats. Very disappointing. Will remain on the waitlist with fingers crossed!

    For LY 2 key months came to play for waitlisters. Of course like NextGen mentioned it is revelant to CGA 's needs.

    May when all with appointments had to accept or decline and June for DoDmerb releases.

    The same goes for CGAS waitlisters I would think. There has been appointments taken off both of those wait list late in the game...2 weeks before R/SDAY.

    46 CGAS wait list offers were extended during Early Action and those applicants must accept their spot by February 1st.

    It was traditionally a pretty even (900-1,000) split between Early Action (EA) and Regular Admission (RA), but the number of EA applications has been declining while the number of RA applications has been rising over the last three years. There is no way to be sure until all application material submitted by the January 15th deadline is processed, but this could very well be the first year there are almost double (1,300-1,400) the number of RA applicants.

    With nearly 1400 for RA in percentage is getting smaller for us waiting for an appointment. Please all involved in this. Have a plan be as time is our enemy now.

    Definitely have a Plan B and C. Yep, odds are steep. But, fingers still crossed. DS is still awaiting decisions from the USNA and USAFA. I guess no news is good news so far in the fact he hasn't been denied yet. But we believe that will occur soon with the USNA, since all the MoC's nominated him for the USAFA.

    I hope or DS get good news! My DD is waiting. But B and C are in place. She was accepted to a University with the same major she choose for USCG Academy. Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering.

    Looks like they took 28% from EA and will be 13% from RA if the high number apply. So again EA has better chance of an Appointment.

    To all. My DD failed her PFE due tomorrow due to coughing from a upper respiratory infecting. So she is out the running. I wish the best to all of you waiting!
