USCGA Prep!

My guess they will inform you. My daughter listed her top choices months ago but at this point they might tell you where he is going with no top 3 listing. Congrats.
 
My deferred then waitlisted son just got called for Prep this morning. We are thrilled (and relieved!)
Can someone tell me if they get to pick the prep school they attend? All advice appreciated!
Congrats!!! I'm going to be prep this year too! My experience was that I was able to rank my top choices for prep in a form, and then they emailed me to inform me about which program I got into (UConn). Not sure if the waitlist will have an impact on whether he can pick his top choices, though. Be sure to join the "USCGA Scholar Program" Facebook group if you can, it's helped answer so many questions and will get your son connected to many of the other kids in our program!

Congratulations!!!!Did anything change in this BD portal?
 
Our friends' son just got a call today with a spot at CGAS! When would they have to report to the academy this summer? I have a 2C this year but am so excited for our friends and their son!!
Yes, CGAS starts slightly later (I believe July 15th). I suppose he could request a deferral, but if he is ready to go then they now have a spot for him. He needs to find out which prep school, but I believe all CGAS start with 3 weeks at CGA and then head to the individual campuses.

Thank you so much! It looks like he is assigned to UConn, Avery point! He is a recruited swimmer also and in touch with the coach. Is there an Insta or FB group for parents/prepsters I could guide them to?
 
Just wondering if anyone knows of CGAS waitlist close date or any communication related to it. DS has sent initial "accept CGAS waitlist email" and it was acknowledged by CGA staff.
DS has sent over 3 follow up emails to several folks at the CGA (no names here) over the past 4-6 weeks, no response.

I’ve requested to join the FB group but haven’t been accepted yet by the moderator. Any ideas how to make that happen?

There is a FB group but I haven’t yet been approved by the moderator. Would really like to join!

I'm not sure if that group is for parents or just the scholars themselves. You can always see who the admins are for any group. So if you've been waiting a while, you could send a message directly to the admins to ask about joining and if they have seen your request.

Bump

I’m actually in the exact same boat, there hasn’t been much communication on my end either. But from earlier in the thread it seems as if July 15th is the report date, there have been stories of last minute / day of calls but I’m just as unsure as you. Anything can happen in a few days it seems though. Best of luck to your DS!

Honestly, DS has moved on to plan B, but would be respectful for a Service Academy to at least reply

I suppose it's just the nature of these things. They're extremely busy this time of year I presume. Regardless, having spoken to previous cadets I've been told they send notifications to the waitlist that the time period is over. Not sure how true that is so take it with a grain of salt.

Best of luck to you and your DS in the next few days!
