Should we update thread based on a call from Coach? My son received a call yesterday from Coach confirming appointment.
It’s usually the practice to wait until you see portal change or have hard copy (BFE= Big Fat Envelope”) in hand.

Sorry missed that, 8) GreatLakes/DS/11/22/21/SC/DODMERB conditional - undecided
You should, if you are able, copy the last list into a new post and add your info. This is a DIY update thread.

Speaking of the Big Fat Envelope, I had received a big ol' packet from the Coast Guard Academy yesterday: Thick, heavy, the whole nine yards. Expecting it to be an appointment, my whole family excitedly surrounded and recorded me opening it. I ripped it open and my eyes went wide as I read "Congratulations we invite you....", leading me to start celebrating. Then my eyes went to the next words, "...to apply to the United States Coast Guard Academy.". That definitely threw my family and I for a loop :laugh:

That was actually our BFE as well. Waited for DS to get home from school, and CGA pranked him. Glad we already had a call from Coach or it would have really bum’d him out.

Still banking on a call or email, congrats to your DS!

Just to clarify, is everyone hearing from phone calls or letters in the mail?
I think recruited athletes are getting phone calls from the coaches confirming that they made it. Other than that I think it's a letter in their application portal or the BFE that shows up on their front porch. Could be wrong tho

We got the same BFE yesterday. Definitely got the heart racing. Fingers crossed we hear soon. It's like sitting on pins and needles. My daughter has wanted to go to the USCGA since she was 12.

You’re basing this on a sample size of 5? Recruited athletes who are academically competitive are instructed to apply early action, so there will be a lot of them to hear from. Doesn’t mean they are being reviewed first.

Just a guess haha I just did base it off of what I saw in the forum and am probably wrong. Sorry if that mad you angry from seeing that. I apologize.
I think coaches are trying to get word out ASAP to lock up recruits. D1 Academies can offer in line with NCAA, basically some time in junior year depending on sport. I believe USCGA and USMMA are at a real disadvantage when it comes to recruiting athletes.

From what I'm looking at they're accepting recruited athletes first in the EA, then all the other people who applied without recruitment?

Admissions officers call too.

Your son's Bear's Den will be updated before he gets the BFE. Last year, my son got phone calls from Coach and then AO on 12/7, his Bear's Den was updated on 12/9, and the BFE arrived in the mail on 12/14.

Ugh... DS got the same... When I pulled out of mail box heart was racing and I was count mins for him to get home from track practice. When he opened it was the same letter and catalog he has received at least 4 times. UGH wait continues....⏳
