    Received and accepted a spot on the waitlist today. That stung real bad. It’s okay though, it just wasn’t meant to be I guess.

    For those on the waitlist, I was waitlisted on 8-Apr-19 and was offered an appointment today (22-Apr-19), so they are already pulling from the waitlist and I am assuming there are more appointments to be offered come May 1st.

    Did you have a waiver granted? I am curious as DS was DQ but hasn't heard or seen info on waiver granted but was waitlisted April 8 as well. Wondering if that impacted waitlist status.

    That's Awesome. Congrats to your DS. My son too accepted USAFA over USMA last night & I guess he is not going to look back at USNA wait list. He was so impressed with AF campus.

    This sounds like a non-typical year (in that in some years, no one comes off the wait list), and very encouraging for those on the NWL.
    Congratulations. Make sure you are in great shape. Plebe Summer is fun if you're in great shape. Not so much if you're not.

    Wonder what that means in terms of how many people may have already turned down USNA?

    The waitlist notice said that if less than 1165 candidates accepted their appointments by May 1 they would pull from the waitlist. I believe it also said they send out about 1300 offers of appointment initially so that would mean only about 136 people have to turn them down for them to pull from the wait list
