    Hi everyone,
    Thank you for being of such great help to me through the process. I got my appointment to West Point today and If any of you need any advice on applying to the academies, shoot me a PM! I would love to help, especially for females, minorities or athletic recruits!

    Hi, just wanted to ask a question. I received a nomination just yesterday (my congressman, NY 16, doesn't do ranked noms), and have also been triple Q'ed and have an LOE, and when I had my interview with the head of the NorthEast admissions officer -fairly recently- he told me my file was the most competitive in my area, so am I not too far off the mark in assuming I have a high likelihood in receiving an offer of appointment?

    websurfer234 -- no one here sits on the Admissions board so the best we can offer you is Good Luck!, be patient waiting and have your Plans B,C,D ready just in case.

    It seems somewhat likely, but as ca2midwestmom said, we don't sit on the admissions board. Also, it's quite possible that someone who stands head and shoulders above you in academics, leadership, and athletics, and is maybe even a recruited athlete, just completed his or her application. Therefore the head of Northeast admissions you spoke with would have been unaware of them when they spoke with you. Not everyone starts their application early.

    Be patient. I'm sure you've submitted the best package you could and you should hold your head high. It's all out of your control now. Be patient. Have fun. Work hard at school and make good choices. Work on plan B. Did I mention be patient? Trying to read the tea leaves just leads to frustration and unnecessary stress.

    Good luck. Hope your dreams come true. :thumb:

    Well thanks for the timely response, any advice is greatly appreciated! I guess I should also mention that I met with the admissions officer just about 2 weeks ago.

    To help calm the nerves, with an LOE, nom, and your interviewer saying that you were the most competitive in the area, I would say your chances are good. But nobody can be sure! :thumb: Just do everything you can, and hope for the best, worrying won't help.
