    You need to bump a 23-minute-old thread?

    It means that I'd also like to know the response but have no input.

    Thank you, Sir! Our family is new to this entire process. It's been a positive process, however, the hurry up and wait isn't easy on the candidate or the family. It's been quite a journey to say the least, but I would encourage anyone wanting to serve their country to do it. We've learned a lot and have met some very great people along the way. As a family we've made some great memories as well on our visits. God Bless the USA and I pray all of your dreams come true. I'm sure praying for our DS as well. He would be a great asset to our military. Again, thank you!

    The following are rough numbers but are in the ball park and can be found on other threads . . .

    buff (one of the moderators) recently educated me that everyone that gets a nom and is considered "qualified academically and in physical aptitude" goes on the NWL.

    West Point Class Profile: http://www.usma.edu/admissions/sitepages/class profiles.aspx puts that number around 2400. Of the 1200 that get appointed, roughly 500 (or more) are #1 off of the MOC slate/Principal Nom, and roughly an additional 200 (or more) are those that are not #1, but have an LOA/recruited athlete/prep or other special path to appointment status, leaving about 1700 folks on the NWL competing for the remaining 350-500 slots.

    Again, these are rough numbers.

    Thank you! I sure wish our MOC would've given Principal Noms! Pros and Cons they've experienced in the past. Great information. Have a great evening and keep being great! Thank you for your service.

    If you are good enough to get the principal nomination from your MOC you are probably good enough to win a competitive slate. The only difference is who picks number 1. Either way one candidate gets an appointment. The rest move on to compete in the national pool.
