    Does anyone know if those appointments from the NWL (top 150, I believe?) were offered on Friday, or are they still to come? It seems like, from the appointments thread, that most of the Friday appointments came from members of Congress, but it's hard to tell. Just curious if anyone knew the timeline!

    From various things CC has posted, it kind of sounds like there is no way to know from which nomination source your appointment came. Unless you only had one nomination and you were the MOC's primary candidate...
    If this is the case, it doesn't really seem like there is any way to know if these appointments came from the MOC slate or from the NWL.
    I could always be wrong though....

    Does NWL = national wait list?

    DS's school had a visit from USNA Admissions today. DS was informed that admissions is still figuring out the congressional slates that were submitted late (like ours) and that the top 150 were not pulled from the NWL yet.

    Did you mean to reference USNA admissions on the USAFA forum? Regardless, thank you for the information - that would make sense if accurate.

    Godspeed

    So sorry posted on the wrong thread. However, I know that MOC interviews for USAFA were done at the same time as USNA and USMA in our district. So I think it would be safe to say that the nominations were submitted to each service academy around the same time.

    I know that this was probably asked before; but if you're considered for the prep school does that usually come with a twe or at a later date?

    Tiny White envelope= denied from the academy.

    I heard that it comes sometime later, but that was from someone who was in that situation 5 years ago

    By law to be in the top 150 one must have a nomination from a congressperson or senator. If one has a military afiliated nomination only, they cannot be placed in this category.

    MORAL: Apply to all nominating sources!
