First of all I want to say, I am new here. I have been reading the post and have received alot of great information from all of you. Things seemed to have slowed down here and was wondering, is it because everyone has heard their status and are busy getting their paper work in order or are they waiting just like us? We have not heard anything positive or negative to date. Is anyone else in the same situation? The wait is driving us crazy. Would appreciate any input! Thanks!!

My DS is still waiting. He got the waitlist email, so now the date to look ahead to is April 30th when he will find out which group of alternates he is in. Hoping for group one.

Good luck!

still waiting....

I'm staying and shape and all with hopes..., but I did send my stuff in to the University of Delaware (my backup etc) so for now I'm going there with Mech Eng......

I figure If I never get in with the academy, there is always OCS

:thumb:That's a good question.


I personally think the lull comes from the fact that some people have gotten the notification that they were not accepted and no longer post. If you don't get into a service academy, and you take a civilian college, there is probably little incentive to stay on here. For others, they may be preparing for the academy time, other may not want to post until the know "yes or no".

I can't post as much right now because I am currently on a patrol, but I am able to get on when I can.

Many of the posters were academy hopefuls, and many have found out where they will be going to college, but I would expect a general upswing in activity when the next high school class really needs to start thinking about college.

It will pick up, no worries.

Glad to hear that it all worked out for your son, despite the whole calculus issue mentioned in another thread. We, on the other hand, are anxiously awaiting tomorrow morning to find out which alternate group son is in. I don't think any of us will be getting much sleep tonight.

Fingers crossed and hopes high! :cool:

Congrats you all :)

My D is hanging out on the WL- group 2 unfortunately but you never know. She's also on the WL for USNA. Guess it's her year for no answers til the last minute. We're just trying to be optimistic while we wait, and wait, and wait some more.
