I know the meaning of "rolling admissions" as in "we evaluate applications and notify applicants in a timely manner if they passed the Board process" (LOA), but what I am unclear about is this: are you also notified in a timely manner if you are deemed not admissible? Will my child be notified before April if they did not get in? My athletic kid has generated a lot of attention from other schools that want my kid to apply "early decision", but seeing how this is a binding agreement, my kid's hands are tied because USNA is first choice. Being a sensible parent, I want my kid to pursue these other opportunities but would hate to apply to another school, get in and then find out in April they got into the USNA and then try to get out of a binding decision with the other school. Because premium scholarship dollars go to early decision candidates I hate to miss out on that money if the board decided in September not to admit them and we have to wait until April to find this out all the while turning away other opportunities. Can anyone else relate to this situation?
