    On my candidate portal it says "this evaluation will not begin until July 31, 2015 at the earliest for most candidates to USMA 2020". Does this mean that admissions evaluates my 6 semester transcripts, resume, and candidate portal and then notifies me if I can continue applying to West Point?

    They will look at your grades and SAT/ACT and whatever else is on part 1. If you are competitive, you will be allowed to complete the rest of the application.

    Initially this said July 1 and they changed it to July 31. I heard they had cut their staff and the workloads increased

    Yep! Finish up those nomination essays and keep working out. I highly recommend completing the West Point applicant ASAP. My FFR described the process like a long line of doors: You have to complete one door before the next one will unlock. Finish the essays and get your recommendations in ASAP.

    I have a question, yesterday I received a noncommittal letter stating that my candidate file was opened, but on my portal it still states: Initial Evaluation Pending. What does that mean?

    I think it means that if u pass this evaluation (which is based off ur sat/act scores, resume, transcripts, and portal) then u can move onto the nxt part of the application

    I think West Point calls it the "second step kit" which probably includes the CFA, DoDMETS, essay, SOEs, and nominations.

    On the letter it stated that my candidate file has been opened and that a complete candidate application is available on my candidate portal, but no forms show up.

    Did u fill out the part where it asks for sat/act scores, athletic, and non-athletic activities? Bc I think as of right now until u pass the initial evaluation u just have to keep working on the CFA and ur nominations

    Yeah, I think you're right because on the letter it said that they would work with me to complete my file and take it through the evaluation process.
