Hello everyone. I'm applying to USMA and USNA 2021. Everything's done except for the CFA and waiver (currently waiting on a DQ). I tore my ACL last March and am working diligently to take the CFA next week. Although I couldn't attend NASS or Girls State because it was after surgery, I attended SLE and loved it; I heard things from my sibling and have researched service academies for 2 years, but I truly enjoyed staying there myself. BGO helped me decide to apply to USNA too. I'm not 'fully cleared' until March which is when I'll send the note to DODMERB. That's my worry: being too late. I've seen on here that most appt's are given in late Jan-Feb, and waivers depend. I have my backup school, but if I go there I am reapplying for sure. Do you all think trying to get a waiver in March is too late since most acceptances are already given out by then and the waiver takes weeks to process? The wait to be 3Q is a long road for me and day by day I tell myself that it will all be OK, but I don't know how much longer I can keep telling myself that. Any advice/words of encouragement is greatly appreciated.
