    I think the deadline is in February. But IMHO it is best to get your application completed before the Congressman/Senators' (MOC) interviews.

    I asked Admissions Virtual Advisor "when is the application deadline?" http://www.askadmissions.net/usma/aeresults.aspx?Quser=when+is+the+application+deadline%3F&submit=Ask Here is their answer:

    Good Luck, SpartanShock117. :thumb:

    Two years ago, when my son applied to West Point, the MALOs (Military Academy Liason Officers) were stretched thin due to the wars. They are volunteers and most are graduates of West Point. These MALOs are busy people.

    Your MALO may be more available to you once you have completed more of your West Point application. Stay in touch with the people you have asked for recommendations and keep your guidance counselor apprised of your progress with your application.

    My son found that following up with the teachers who wrote his recommendations and writing the essay were the most time consuming parts of the application.

    You can do it...there is still plenty of time. :thumb:

    I read on another thread that you are planning to take the SAT (and maybe the ACT?) again. Keep working on completing your USMA application and your nomination applications. You can update your USMA application with new SAT/ACT scores until the deadline in February/March, 2009.
