In regards to her notification, she was sent an email and when she checked the portal it too was updated. Only the portal gave the school.
I honestly did not expect this so all I can say is (and it has been said by so many). “You have no idea what they are looking for.”
I watched two sons go through this and their resumes were identical. My oldest did not get it my other son did. My daughters resume was stronger in academia; however, her math was weak and she applied tier 2. I’m truly confused.
I think I was even more surprised by her reaction. It started a practice with the coach sending her home and when she got in the door she was super over the top happy. I don’t get the crying stuff.
She has not heard back from the Naval Academy but something tells me she will accept the NROTC scholarship.
