    I’m a nervous mom whose DS #1 is awaiting a decision from Virginia Tech and Virginia Military Institute. He has applied for an AFROTC scholarship and the review board meets this week, so waiting to hear on that too.

    DS#2 is a sophomore and hopes to attend USNA.

    I’ve already learned a lot by reading through the forums.

    Best of luck to your two DS's. You are amongst many fellow nervous parents.

    Welcome! Just a hint on VMI--check your DS's portal page. Our DS's all of a sudden had a bunch of extra documents loaded that looked suspiciously to me like information they would want if he was admitted (he was!!)--but we had no official notice. Two weeks later the official letter arrived. They do not tell you electronically they send you a nice certificate of acceptance in the mail. I attribute some of the delay to us being overseas and the APO mail being what it is. Just wanted to share our experience of hearing from them.

    Fingers crossed for all of us!

    Thank you! I’ll have him check when he gets home from work. I had originally told him not to bother because they don’t post the official appointment until a while after paper document is mailed.

    My DS#1 is currently attending VMI. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
