Have the student call. We heard back (years past for 4 kids) much earlier than now. Friends of ours have already heard from everyone save CGA.
eta:--I was too late with this post. So sorry to hear that.
To be honest, it was kind of expected. His "childhood asthma" probably just kicked it out the door...even though he's never been hospitalized for asthma, had one "attack" (use of the term is very loose) 5 years ago, and has been unmediated for 4 years. I told a couple of people -- and they were like, "NOOO! Why would you tell them that?" lol -- well, it's those words "any and all" or "ever." "Have you EVER been..." well, there was this one time at the age of 3 years, he was treated for dehydration... (I didn't include that). That AND having our "home state" being Virginia makes it really, really hard.
When doing his paperwork, the Navy hospital advised me to leave that question blank on all of the history forms, and go over it with the attending physician at his physical.
So, we're getting the medical stuff all out of the way now. If something is disqualifying we'd rather know now than after he's done all of the nominations, etc.
But, assuming his test scores are strong (May/June tests), and nothing medical is wrong -- he's on a "short list" at one (probably two or three service academies -- we'll know more in June). AND, he's being recruited from a few other colleges which sweetens the deal. It will all come down to COST + strength of engineering program + swimming (last). I'm just hoping we are down to fewer than 10 schools by the end of July.
