Can you receive an LOA from USMMA?
LOA as in Letter of Acceptance?
"LOA" as an intent to offer an appointment. Similar to USNA.
Yes, the academy does offer them. My son received one last fall stating that a spot was reserved for him provided he continued in his academic excellence and received a nomination. He is currently a plebe 2017. BTW - he was not a recruited athlete.
Just a confirmation
A second to the statement above, USMMA does send LOA's and they can be for academics/activities/SAT and NOT just for recruited athletes.
So apply and keep up the good work....
Does anyone know when the USMMA will start sending out LOA's? I am sure the shutdown has affected their normal schedule.
The LOA my DS received last year was sent out the first week of November. Due to the 14 days the academy was shut down, I think it would be reasonable to think the admissions process might be pushed back a bit.
