    I was recently on my candidate portal for USMA and whenever I clicked "Application Overview" a paragraph would come up explaining what this section is and used for and on the right side of the screen was a box that had the title "INITIAL EVALUATION PENDING". Before today it said "This evaluation will not begin until July 1 for most candidates to USMA 2019" but I logged in today and the date had changed from July 1 to August 13. Did I do something wrong or did I pass something??? I'm just curious as to why the date changed. All help is appreciated, Thanks.

    happened to me too, did you get the noncommital letter?
    it basically says they will revaluate the files once we send in official transcripts, and if they deem you competitive they open up the other application materials for you to complete.
    I might be wrong though?

    Noncommital??

    I'm a re-applicant and I got no such letter last year. I barely missed 2018, as I was nominated and triple qualified and cadets I know are telling me that if I apply this year, I'm getting in for sure. When I read the letter, I kind of got a negative vibe from it. Is it because West Point doesn't have my final high school transcript or any of my college information? Does anyone know?

    Same thing was done last year. They just need more time to review files. They are still processing my class of 2018's files but that will be done by Mid August, when we are officially accepted as plebes and no longer have a candidate portal.

    So I did some research and I found that the noncommittal letter is sent to candidates who are competitive for admission or admissible. It's a good thing to get this letter. I was originally non competitive last year because of my math test scores but retook and was deemed competitive after, thus, I didn't receive the letter.

    Did anyone here attend SLE? My DS was in week one and his portal has been open since May. Don't know if that helps or not.

    Thank you to everyone who replied and luckily I received the Noncommittal Letter in May so I guess I'll just continue on with this long and odd application process. Hope to see all of you in 2015. BEAT NAVY!

    I thought it would be open in July so teacher emails could be input so LOR's requests could be sent to them. Is this later than last year? We are still working toward nominations and plan B and C, it just seems like the rest of the application would be opening earlier, like mid July, not mid August. Want to get DS started on the essays before school starts back for him the last week of August.

    Is it possible to send in a 6 semester transcript before the rest of the application opens? I assume he would just mail in an official sealed one to the admissions office?
