    Don't get too excited, for some people it may be a few more weeks before they hear officially. But at least the deadline has actually passed eh?

    Time to start freaking out and stalk the mailman. We've made it this far without a QNS letter guys... good luck to you all.

    Dude, that's exactly what I've been thinking. "Haven't gotten a QNS letter yet..." That must mean I've got a chance! Good luck to everyone.

    So, I guess, if you got the QNS lettter already, its over? It seems a lot of people didn't get the QNS letter as of yet and out of those people there will be some getting the QNS letter (who will have a shot if someone don't accept) which means for those who got the QNS letter a while ago really don't have any shot at all? This is a bummer if true.
    Good luck to all.

    There are always exceptions to every rule but:
    1. The fact is that there are approximately 1500-1800 people on the NWL - all have a nominations and are 3Qd.
    2. The vacancy winner for many Congressional Districts (for those MOCs that allowed WP to determine "the best" of their up to 10 nominations) will be determined within the next 1-3 weeks.
    3. The "winners" in other the categories (Presidential, NG, etc) will be determined in the next month.
    4. The LOA people either have or soon will have their Appointments.
    5. The people with QNS letters are 99+% sure to NOT get an Appointment. Several hundred more QNS letters will be sent by the end of March
    6. The people in the top quarter of the NWL have a very good chance of getting an Appointment.
    7. A few in the bottom 3/4 of the NWL will get appointments for "diversity"
    There is nothing you can do now but wait.
    Good luck to all of you!!

    I think you are assuming way more about the process then you should. The nomination system makes service academy admissions different then normal college admissions. Just because someone has already been told they are not going to be admitted does not mean they are less qualified then someone who hasn't been told yet. They could just be coming out of a very strong congressional district. Of course, if could mean they are less qualified, too. No way to tell.

    In my day we didn't have a portal, but from what I have read, it sounds awesome. Has your DS checked his portal to see if they have been received?

    We all made it this far! The fact that we even got this close is something amazing to be proud of. I think the mailman is filing a restraining order...

    DS has left most of the checking up to me since he is at college and doing AROTC. I am officially his stalker! His college grades have not shown up and the academy is not responding to his emails or request for someone to check where it is and no one has gotten back to him. Could that be considered a "not completed" application? Could his be closed out? So worried for him......His nomination wasn't showing up and it took since Dec. when DS was notified to yesturday for it to show up. He and I stalked everyone we could to find out why and where that was.... Anyone else having that issue?

    They are probably just extremely swamped right now. I assume when they close the portal for maintenance and then reopen it, it will have a lot more information updates than before. They're preparing for the final phase of admissions, so exciting, but stressful :eek:

    I would CALL WP admissions TODAY to confirm that they have received those 1st semester transcripts.
    Yes - his file could be closed if that transcript is not in today.

    Know someone who got this email last APR 26th:

    "At this point I believe it is highly unlikely we will extend any additional offers. ... At this point I recommend you pursue your other options."

    Then was offered and appointment MAY 6th. So don't give up hope.

    jagabiti-it is simple. Have your son call the Regional Admissions officer today and ask those questions. Have your son talk to him personally. I have heard several Admissions Officers over the years say that it is a bad sign when the parents call - they want to hear from your son.

    Great news, check the portal today and it posted and all things are green. Boy was that a squeeker at the last minute. Thanks for your help! So now its waiting. His portal is showing 2 nominations but we can't figure out who the second one is. The long wait begins again.
