Given where the academy is at in the admissions process, I would expect his appointment will be handled along with all the other appointments for the competitive slates. It doesn't make sense to me that they would do a special effort for a principal nominee at this point in time. I would think he would end up in the first big batch of appointments which I would expect sometime in February. JMPO.Well, here's hoping. My DS has PN from MOC that USNA received 1/26/17. I was REALLY hoping to hear something last week, but nothing yet. "Complete Pending Review" are getting to be my 3 least liked words! My DS (bless his heart) remains calm, cool and collected and when I say "HOW???" he responds, "Well, Mom, that's why I'm going to be an Officer!"
