Heartfelt congratulations to all of those who have heard of their acceptances into the academies! It's an incredible accomplishment and there is much to be proud of. From reading through past threads, it appears as if you are otherwise entirely qualified you do not find out that you were not admitted until pretty late in the game. Is my understanding correct? I would imagine that there is a large number of applicants that the admissions department knows perfectly well will not be offered an appointment. Why do you think they hold off on those notifications when so many acceptances are going out now?
