    My daughter applied to WP last year and did not get in, but WP gave her an ROTC scholorship to the college of her choice. She chose Penn State and she is excelling there academically and in the ROTC program. She (this evening) stated that she "might re-apply to WP".

    She is a much better candidate now that she has earned very good grades in a similar academic course load to a WP plebe (He brother is currently a Plebe at WP) and she has performed well in the ROTC program and would (presumably) have a better shot as a college/ROTC re-applicant.

    My question is: Is it too late for her to reapply, given that the nomination source deadlines have all passed?

    not all deadlines have passed

    My son was in a similar situation two years ago. I just checked his timeline for his recommendation for WP by his AROTC commanding officer - the completed and signed nomination form arrived at our house on December 3, 2012.

    If your DD really wants a spot at WP - she should immediately talk to her CO and fill out the necessary form ASAP. I believe it's ROTC Nomination Form 5-497.

    Your DS can always contact her Congressman as they might have a nomination left over. All depends on the competitiveness, but some MOCs don't give out all the nominations.

    Based your avaitar, I am guessing you are or were in the military. If so you DD might qualify for a Presidential nomiantion.
