    Thank you for the update Padre101. I am on the West Point Moms page--and have been stalking the West Point Admissions page...and have not seen anything so helpful.
    It looks like there is a still a lot of opportunity in that class. Thank you.

    Thank you for the update! My DD is anxiously waiting to see what her future holds. Most of these candidates waiting are most likely students that like to have things planned and in order. Not knowing where they will be in three months and four days is very nerve racking!

    At this point there is not much that one can do. My DS has his Plan B in order (Texas A&M), and is just waiting to see if he gets a USMA appointment or not. No matter what, this adventure has been such a ride!

    Good Luck to all!!

    Thanks Padre101.
    Its good to know where they are at.
    My DD was fortunate enough to get an appointment and has met a lot of friend who also applied and are still waiting.
    Its nice to know there is still a good chance for some of them.
    And a chance for all the applicants as they have all worked so hard to get where they are and deserve acknowledgement

    Great information! DS has LOA and finally received medical waiver last week. Hoping for the MOC call and BFE any day now. He can't wait to be part of the class of 2021.

    Just wanted to post an update. Bad news / Good news.
    Bad news: DS received the TWE. No USMA for him this year.
    Good News: Accepted to Texas A&M on a 4-Year Army ROTC Scholarship.

    He is very happy to go to Texas A&M. He will be an officer in 4 years.

    Thanks to all.

    Any info on how many appointments have been tendered, as opposed to accepted?

    As of 31 March, acceptees are now 697.

    Reliable source stated about 2000 total offers will be tendered to reach 1220 goal.

    Will there be another big wave coming soon? I haven't received a TWE or an appointment yet

    That would mean that nearly everyone who is 3Q'D would get an appointment. Plus, in the past they had like an 85% acceptance rate on appointments.

    With USMAPS coming in, would the +/- 200 add to that # and so real #'s closer to 897, so only a little over 300 left?

    2000 seems high. I thought it would be in the 1400 range.

    Intel could be incorrect, although it came from an RC

    Well, if anyone is going to know, it will be an RC.
