DS requested his waitlist status this morning.....he's in group 2 which contains 120+ applicants. So, even though we are optimistic people, we're not banking on getting past the 150 people on the combined lists. Yeah, it could happen, but at some point you have to start moving forward. He's already in college, so will continue forward with a new student loan, class registration, housing, etc. If we get a last minute phone call, that would be awesome, although I don't know how people throw it together at the last minute.

Here's hoping some of you got better news today!

Ditto for us. Not exactly what we were hoping for, but somehow I still believe our son will end up where he is supposed to.

Good luck to everyone!

You're so right.
Shellz & mom2five, sorry to hear about the waitlist news. But when one door closes, another one opens for opportunities. GOOD things are still ahead for them. All the best to you & families as you continue your journey.

I got into group A, so I'm on edge. Really didn't expect that.....

From what I gather though, they use up quite a bit of the wait listed people. No worries Coastie for Life, shellz, and mom2five


here's hoping for someone to bail out so we all have a chance. :thumb:

Group A

Congrats to you for getting into group A! Our AO said in his experience, 20-25% of the waitlisted group gets in. If you combine the total of both groups, that's about 30-40 kids, so it looks like you have an excellent chance!

Thanks Zfam. Son is still hoping, but has a great back up plan in place. And, the desire to try it one more time in the fall. Next time it will be easier because he won't have to go through the waiver process w/DoDMERB. :smile:

Do you any of you know if the wait lists are ranked in any particular order?
