    Hello everyone,

    So I am glad to say that I have received an appointment to the USNA class of 2023, and my community, family, and myself are very proud of this magnificent achievement. I wanted to know when I can expect the big fat envelope to arrive at my house - I am curious and super interested to know more of the details about the process from here on out until I-day. I received my appointment today, so would they be mailing it out today as well?

    Also - a HUGE thank you to everyone that devotes their time and effort to delivering quality advice and messages to the people that want to take this big step. Without this forum, I would never have been so lucky to know all I need to know about service academy admissions. I look forward to giving back to this community by following in your guys' footsteps and giving advice to young adults that hope to be going down the same road one day.

    In the next few days to the next few weeks. There are lots of posts about this lately, probably be good to check those out. There isn’t a lot to do besides keeping in shape between now and when your PTR arrives in a few months.

    “BFE” is a padded blue folder with appointment letter on one side and a picture on the other. Yes it can take a while to arrive. No it isnt mailed the day your portal changes. There isn’t really much to it. There is more here on the forums. But it’s the coolest thing to have.

    The really thick envelope is the PTR packet, which will come in the late spring. Which is all the forms and info you need to fill out. Everything from shirt size to immunization forms. Tons here on the forums as to what’s in that, but nothing you need to concern yourself with at this point.

    Congrats! Tend to your academics. Enjoy your senior year. Stay in shape. Eat healthy and take your vitamins to build up your best defenses for staying healthy. Take care of the Navy’s future officer!

    My DS accepted his offer of appointment on Dec 12. The BFE arrived yesterday. There was obviously the Christmas holiday in there that delayed things a bit as well.

    Congratulations! Remember that's an Offer of Appointment. You aren't appointed until you stand in the hot sun in soaking wet, baggy, stiff whiteworks on June 27th with your right hand raised and take the oath of office - while sweat is running down your face - and you're wondering what you got yourself into!
