The only thing I can predict is that the feeling of pride you will have for your son, once the pride of the sheer appointment is over, will be almost overwhelming when you see just how far he will develop as a man, a gentleman, and a human being virtually overnight. It is not a normal college experience, but one which will test him in all capacities in which a person can be tested. It is a huge responsibility to accept this appointment, and one which will virtually guarantee his success in life.
Anytime you as parents have doubts, please feel free to call Chip or me, and if your son ever questions his decision, he should contact Navy cadKID, or CPLZkid. They will be comrades (even as competitors), most assuredly.

Bump to top...
Trying to revive the thread, can anyone provide an update on the service academy baseball programs? Additionally, how do the academies make offers to kids (2019 and 2020) if the Congressional/Senatorial appointment application windows haven't even opened for their respective year group (2019 and 2020)?
In my son’s experience, the coaches made verbal offers just like every other D1 as the first step. My guy did on campus visits, and then turned down the offers...the schools weren’t for him. So others will have to chime in on the rest of the process.
We'll be at the All-State Banquet tonight and my son's teammate from last summer will be there as well. He's a 2018 and headed to one of the academies next month for boot camp. I can ask him and his Dad how it went down and let you know. He was offered late summer/early fall last year (Senior year) so the answer may not help you.
