    My DS received his LOA today and has two nominations prior to Christmas break. After two years of reading posts and having visited the Naval Academy we are excited and proud beyond words. To see our son have such an amazing opportunity is incredible. Best of luck to everyone in the Class of 2023 and thank you for the support and wisdom we have gained through this forum.

    That's a lost cause. Each one is different. The appointment is what one is after anyway.

    Why a LOA now and not an appointment if he already has his nom?

    Same result ... but they might select someone else for the MOC appointment - this way they have flexibility?

    Thank you! DS received his DODmerb clearance two weeks ago. At this point, DS has no required actions.

    We don't know which nomination they will use. DS has a nomination from MOC as well as NJROTC. We hope an appointment will come soon.

    Wow congrats! He will get an Appointment soon;) I find it interesting LOA is coming out on a Sunday, guess my son should check his portal (right after the Eagles win of course).

    DS just checked his portal today for the first time in two weeks. So, we don't know the exact day the LOA was given.

    I suspect it's merely a case of two ships passing in the night.
