    DS got an “advisement” from USNA urging him to finish his application. It seems pretty standard to me, but it seemed odd as the only thing open is BGO interview. The phrasing was “keep calm and finish your application”.
    Anyone else?

    I didn't get this, but I only have my essay and being cleared by DoDMERB left. If your DS isn't very far along yet, it is probably just a reminder.

    I got the same thing. All I’m waiting for is BGO.

    DS got an email from one of the coaches yesterday encouraging “them” to keep working though their applications. Appeared to be a general email to potential athletes in that sport. DS is not a recruited athlete and has been CPR since mid-August.

    I posted about this as I received the email as well. It is an "Letter of Encouragement (LOE)" apparently which is standard if you have completed a lot of your application, but haven't completed anything for a while.

    My son got this too but slightly weird to us because everything remaining (one teacher rec, college transcript, and CFA submission) is all waiting on other people to complete (though USNA doesn't know the transcripts are in process). But he has been done except for those for a few weeks.

    My DD is currently a Plebe at USNA. We did receive similar notifications prior to her appointment. This is normal for the service academies. I would encourage you to complete these as fast as possible. I’ve no idea of the actual selection process, it seems to be a closely guarded secret but you can bet they look at an applicants application process.
