Hi, After some hold ups with the app process, I've found these forums which seem to offer a great deal of help. DS is a senior, hoping for his USNA appointment. (USMA 2nd choice but BGO won't give us the time of day). DS keeps a very busy schedule with dual enrollement, sports and ECA. I've had to step in and help him with some of his final steps in the application process as he is pressed for time. I have plenty of questions on things I don't understand on the whole process, and it seems like everyone we talk to has different answers. But I don't want to be a helicopter mom.
