    Thx— he’s really excited — he already had an appointment to USMA but he was waiting and hoping for AFA— this makes his day— it’s exciting times and the waiting was something else but he was a cool customer— very proud of him

    Congratulations! Now hopefully both of you can relax and enjoy the rest of the time that you have together until I-Day. As I have said several times, relish each day and capture them in your heart because the transformation between I-Day and the next time you see him will be marked. I took a picture a day and posted on Facebook, and I love how each morning I am reminded of what happened a year ago even if I choose not to share with the world.

    Don’t understand why comment such as “ Army’s admission program is better”? What is meant by that — why the negativity? — kids have a hard enough time choosing their school and their future without comments like this— unless I’m missing something—-

    I'm pretty sure wishful was just joking due to the friendly rival between the big 3. That's how I took it.

    The OP appeared to be a tongue in cheek reference to a discussion last fall. Some applicants/parents who applied to multiple academies were grousing that USAFA appeared to be less friendly and helpful when compared to admissions at USMA and USNA. A bit of friendly banter ensued.

    Did he receive a call from MOC prior to his portal change?
