    After being a part of the TWE massacre last month, getting a phone call yesterday afternoon from our Congressman that my son was receiving an appointment left us completely stunned. And it's officially "official"...his portal was updated today!!!
    We are beyond proud, ecstatic, nervous...emotions are on overload for all of us. He was all set to attend Villanova on a 3-year AROTC scholarship!

    And I have to tell you, I had read that it COULD happen, but the TWE letter was so very "final." We had cut our losses and moved on!
    When I reminded my son last night that we knew there was a chance this could happen, his reply was, Yeah, but I didn't think it would happen for ME!

    Congratulations! Hopefully I can meet your DS during our time there. I too received the TWE in April and was later appointed, and I can say it is a great feeling!

    There is a local kid here who got twe from USAFA last year and only 15 days prior to reporting day got an appointment. He is in class of 2019 now.

    There are kids, like my son, who don't decline their appointment until late. That opens spots up late. I am not sure, however, why USAFA sends denial letters out when a candidate could still receive an appointment.
