Our DS received an appointment to USNA for the class of 2020 and will be attending the class of 2020. We could not be more proud of his accomplishments. Coincidentally a classmate was applying to a different SA and didn't get an appointment but was offered the prep option. The parents and prepster are telling our community he is going to the SA. Even at the prepsters grad open house it was understood by our community that the prepster was attending the SA. Our family is speechless and offended but have not tried to educate anyone on the differences. Very small community and frankly uneducated on the SA process! Praying for the right words!
