I was wondering how West Point notifies you of your appointment... I know that they send out acceptance letters and give your congressional district a call (if you were nominated by your congressman). However, are there any other ways they notify you? Like, before you get your acceptance letters (since it takes at least a week or two to arrive in your mail), can you go on your Candidate Portal and see if you got appointed? If so, how does it show up on your candidate portal? In addition, if I click "home" on my Candidate Portal, it leads to me a page where it says your title, what city and state you live in, and what school you attend. If it says "Cadet Candidate (Name)", does this mean you are accepted to the USMAPS or just running to be a candidate for USMA? I will thank whoever answers my question ahead of time. Thank you!
