    Don't know about the rest of you still waiting, but we have never answered so many phone calls from spammers in the hopes that 'maybe' the phone number could be "the ONE."

    Just a little humor to add to the waiting!

    Good luck to all still in the same boat!

    Heh, they're probably all spreading your number around, saying they've got a live one who will answer anytime of day or night! :) Yes, it's an anxious time isn't it?

    Same here! I've answered calls about car insurance, switching my cellular phone data plan, switching electric companies, requests for me to donate to several different non-profits but have not answered a single call from our congressman or his staff. :) Maybe tomorrow will be the day. LOL

    Karma sucks!!!! After making an admittedly bad joke about being a SPAM caller, see above, my DD just got a SPAM call from her MOC. We were having dinner and she got a call with caller ID saying it was her MOC. Our hearts skipped a beat or two and we all screamed "what are you waiting for? Answer it"! It was a robo call asking her to listen in on a town hall meeting. If only they knew. If only. No more bad jokes from me!

    Good Luck! My DD did not get "the call" but rather an email so now you have to go through all the spam!:diespam:

    Just an FYI, when the MOC called last year the caller ID showed "Private Number". Hope that helps weed out the calls.

    Our MOC actually called back in December to let us know that DS got principle NOM, but also informed us that it is still up to USNA on final approval. The bad part was that it said unknown number on my cell phone, so I sent it to voice mail. It was suck a great voice mail though, too bad we never really talked to him to ask him if he would call back if DS was accepted....lol

    As noted above, not all appointees get "the call." Keep checking your portal!

    Sometimes, when Congress is in session, the MOC will call from their office phone. Private Numbers or (202-XXX-XXXX) Area Codes is the one you should be looking for!

    Do not only go with how it was done in your state/district last year. What MoC decides to do can change. We had the same MoC, same staff, but two different outcomes. Got a voicemail from the MoC the year DD applied. Two years later, heard nothing from her, and DS saw the email from admissions offering his appointment on a family road trip.

    Best of luck to everyone still waiting!

    Trying every day not to call the MOC office and ask if they heard something or if they are going to call. I know that this is the new motto "hurry up and wait" I know that my DS will know soon enough, and that sometimes the anticipation is a gift in it's self....

    Lol just had one of those moments. Son just got an email from our congressman. Don't get too excited... It was the monthly newsletter. Apparently son is on his email list. Ok..no news here. Calm down and resume the evenings activities, track meet, homework...

    Totally agree, and what's worse is that we had a huge windstorm here, and a lot of people are without power. Therefore, as a teacher, I have been home all day trying to make myself busy, as there was no school. Another call just came a few minutes ago...and it was the school district calling off school for tomorrow...again. I am not sure if I can take another day at home, just waiting.
