    Hello,

    I attended the Summer AIM program. I have submitted my application for class of 2023. I have received an invitation to the Genesis Invitational with my parents. Has anyone attended this? What does this imply?

    Thanks.

    While waiting for a reply, use the Search function to browse old threads on exactly this topic - I just did, and found 6 threads going back to 2011.

    Are you going? My DS also attended AIM. We are in contact with his admission offers. She asked for my DS unofficial transcript and a copy of the Genesis invitation letter. She found a copy of the invitational letter so now just my DS’ transcript. Then she will register my son n I. She send me a copy of the schedule. Pm me I’ll send it to you. It start on Monday at 8am ends Tuesday at noon. I don’t know any thing about it, do I’ll be search here too!

    Who’s attending for Sept 16-18 Genesis?? Where you planning to stay. Parent weekend at the Academy is the next weekend, Sept 22-23. Hotels are expensive already! I am going with my DS from Florida arriving on the 15.

    Invitation to Genesis is a good Omen! It implies they like you. Last year my DS was given his Appointment during Genesis. Go with your family and enjoy the visit. Staff are great and the Cadets are very honest about their Plebe Summer and Plebe year which only just started.

    We attended Genesis with our DS. It was a great experience for us as parents as well as our DS. Great information and as my son explained - it was a far different experience from AIM. If you have the chance, I would say you should try to attend.

    Thank you for the info. Are you going with your parents? I’ll see if I can pm you. DS n I are arriving on Saturday morning. I’ll have atleast 3 2C cadets joining us. I would like to meet with your parents if we can on Monday.

    Yes we were there but, didn't get time to check the forum. I am so glad I took my Dad, he was very impressed with the academy and the interactions he had. I now wait for any communication. All formalities completed from application point.

    Sgusafa. Getting invited to Genesis is a good sign. They normally invite those they like to admit. So if you’re done with all your apps and interview and applying to EA I think you are in a good spot. Of course this is my guess only based on our experience and what Admissions told us last year about candidates who they invite to Genesis. Fingers crossed. Good luck!

    Thank you so much for the comments. My application status is "Application Complete - Ready for Review". I also saw that USCGA has requested my DODMERB since I got back from GENESIS. I am really looking forward to joining them if offered.
