    If the Nominations tab in the Application Overview section of the Admissions Portal has a green check next to my district, does that mean I have received a nomination or that I have completed my application for a nomination? Also, is it possible for my congressman to nomination me to more than 1 academy?

    If you go to your nominations tab and it says (insert district here) and then a check mark it means you're nominated. Congratulations, but I would contact your nominations team to see if its ranked or a competitive pool system, or possible your field force to see how you stand up in your district. Only your nominations sources know if you apply they don't report to WestPoint if you applied, only if you received the nomination.

    Thank you for the reply. Do you think that I should just wait for a letter or phone call instead? The interview was this past Saturday and I do not want to be a bit pushy or annoy them. I wonder why the nominations team told me to wait for a notification in late December when they posted it today...

    I don't think a call down there would bother them. If anything call and tell then you appreciated working with them and that your excited to hear back from USMA. I've been told that some love it when you write thank you letters. It also may give you a greater chance for a higher ranking on the list next year if you have to reapply.

    Yes, it is possible for your MOC to nominate you to more than one academy. They could give you noms to all four if they chose.

    NOM?

    Congrats on your nom!!! you're correct now is the hardest part the waiting for an appointment. I would encourage you to continue with improving your profile by taking the ACT/SAT tests and academic challenges.

    Push Hard, Press Forward
