DS received a letter of assurance today! He is jumping through hoops and his Mom and Dad are very proud of him. His Grandpa (82nd Airborne) is smiling down on him I am sure...It is something that he wasn't sure he would receive, given the policy change regarding rolling admissions. He is a recruited athlete and did attend an official two day visit. The point of the thread is to alert other candidates that there are still LOA's being given. Just to be certain that it is not an LOE, the first paragraph reads: "Congratulations! The Admissions Committee has recommended you for an appointment to the United States Military Academy (USMA). Accordingly, I have reserved a cadetship for you contingent upon receipt of a nomination and continued excellent work in school. When these matters are resolved, you will be appointed a member of the USMA Class of 2017". Good luck to all candidates, it really can happen! GO ARMY!!!!
