I was wondering the same thing- my DS received the dreaded TWE from USMA at the end of February. (He had a nomination and had received a letter from USMA in early Feb. saying he was fully qualified. Agrahh!)
USNA is his first choice and his portal still says Complete- Pending Review, but I am super confused because he didn't get a nomination for USNA so therefore isn't eligible for an appointment? I would think he would have been told no by now. . .
I agree (as always!) with Capt MJ. It feels horrible to be one of the "not this year's" and can be hard to come back at times and hearing about all the yesses, but knowing how hard everyone has worked it makes me so happy for the ones who make it in. I can just feel their joy and I am in awe of them
I also think it's good for the others who don't get the news they had hoped for to hear about similar situations and the options others take after the big no. This is a wonderful community with so much support if you are willing to look and listen.
Best of luck to you wnsham96! I'm rooting for ya!
