    I remember this part of DS's application - they had drop-down boxes to indicate varsity letters for each sport played (and projecting senior year letters).

    Hanging is all we can do! DS has three varsity letters in two sports (wrestling and baseball) and lots of other stuff (Eagle, etc.) but I post only to point out that it can drive you crazy trying to figure out this stuff. For DS's wrestling, being a varsity wrestler is not enough - you have to earn so many points. For baseball, you have to play a certain amount of innings as a varsity player. Admissions is filling out a class and they may be looking for a particular mix of individuals. If a candidate doesn't fit for some reason or the competition within their nomination sources is stiff, then it's Plan B. As hard as it is (and it is difficult), one needs to accept that it is out of your (and your DS's) hands.

    I don’t know how it all works. My son started in 8 of the 9 sports/seasons. Sat the bench first year varsity basketball ... but was 6-8 off bench depending if it was a guard or forward coming out first.

    And he got letters each year at the awards ceremony ... lol never kept them.

    Congrats to all ..so far.. Looks like the offers are starting to flow.

    As an aside:
    Just a hint, ..when someone in authority tells you to give them a call, they don't really mean it ! (In other words, don't call your MOC and tell them Plebe Summer is tough ....).

    True story, BuPers visited us on Deployment years ago, I think he was a 3 star, and during one of the meet and mingle sessions with the troops, he got to talking with one of my young E-3's about her plans in the Navy. At the end of the conversation the Admiral told her " let me know how it goes.." or something to that effect. Next thing you know, she was writing personal letters to the Admiral, complaining how her chain of command wasn't letting her advance, etc. That didn't go over well. (Long story shortened, this AN had a lot of issues....last I heard she was in the Brig, writing her Congressman that she was being held in the Brig "against her will." As DivO, I had to prepare the response to the MOC inquiry; it was well documented and supported , but to this day I still wanted to lead off with the statement " Everyone is in the Brig against their will !"

    Has anyone received their BFE from the January 23rd appointment wave? I haven't and thought it would have arrived by now.

    LAST YEAR ON THIS DATE we only had seventy-one (71) offers reported. 45 had accepted (+12 "will accept") by that date, whereas only 30 have accepted (+15 "will accept") so far this year.
    24 are undecided so far this year, whereas only 14 were undecided last year.
    Last year, there were no offers declined by this date.
    This year, we have had 3 decline (but 2 are going to USMA and 1 is going to USAFA) <-- so it's still a win for the SAs.

    DD just got it in the mail today! She was a January 23rd appointment. Would assume they were mailed in a batch so expect it this week!

    very similar to DS, 1560 SAT and 36ACT and perfect GPA, no LOA. No CVW either but he did do NASS and literally loved every minute of it. we'll hang here together in CPR land :)

    No CVW here either (but NASS). Sounds like switche at birth. None of it will matter if DS gets an appointment. If he doesn’t, we’ll all cry in our beers and then DS will pick himself up and execute Plan B.

    1500 SAT here. Principal nominee. NASS, no CVW. CPR since early December.

    No LOA and no appointment. Obviously I don't feel entitled to anything, but I'm just getting a little antsy. That's all!

    There will be many with these scores and stats, that do not receive an offer of appointment. It’s hard to fathom!! But more goes into class composition that tremendous scores, gpa, sports, leadership, etc. There is more to it that what we will ever know. More to it than what is on a candidates resume. MOC slates, competitiveness of a district, etc. We can’t make sense of it, because there isn’t any sense TO it. The class of ‘24 is more that any one individual resume.

    DS has similar scores etc, went to NASS and CVW. Proud member of CPR land since August. We are blessed to have an appointment from the USAFA but the waiting is still awful.

    Wondering if a Senatorial nomination carries any more weight than a Congressional nomination, given the larger pool of applicants?

    There's no 'weight' to a nomination. There's a pool of ten people nominated (usually) and you're competing against those people to win that slate. More noms=more chances but not that you're 'extra qualified'. If you're competitive and do not win your slate there are other places you can be appointed from (secretary of navy, national pool...) but they're less likely. I suggest looking over the Nominations part of the forum if you're still confused!

    Edit: not to say that being competitive across your entire state doesn't say something vs. being competitive in just your district but USNA has a different WCS than the nomination sources may have so don't read too much into it...
