First of all: thanks to all who expressed their sympathy to me through PMs or posts in my other thread.

The administration notified me today that I would be allowed to stay for my final semester for Community Service work (ie helping the janitors :p), Paperwork on weekends, and maintaining a 3.5 GPA unweighted!!!!

I cannot express how excited I am. I started this process without any of my parent's support, and since I didn't have my license I took buses and trains to my interviews (here in Atlanta the transports suck! And they are dirty and I was wearing a suit :D). I filled out all paperwork, I organized, I got nominations and interviews and everything, and most importantly I got the job done.

I know this doesn't seem like alot, but to me... it's amazing I can funilly fufill my dream.

I want to thank everyone on the forum who has given me valuable help, and to say with a big happy shout: CLASS OF 2013!!!!!!!!!!

(This might seem melodramatic... but I AM SO HAPPPY RIIIIGHT NOWWWWWW. haha :D)

Congratulations, TWinter. You are a wonderful example of setting a goal and not letting obstacles get in your way! See you on I-Day. Only I don't have a USNA Mom t-shirt! I'll be the Mom with the big smile, then the crocodile tears! :shake:

Yay. Good for you. I got shivers reading your post. I don't know you at all, but I am so proud of you. I knew you would find a way. I hope my son gets a chance to know you since he is going to be in your class.

Good job, Twinter. Glad that you found a way to help make your dreams come true and I wish you all the best going into your plebe year. My son has accepted a slot at NAPS so I'll look forward to seeing you in 2010, Lord willing. Who knows you may have my son and his peers as "your" plebes in your youngster year. I believe you'll remember to treat them right1:shake: :biggrin:
