    What is the significance of an LOE? I received one from the academy last November but haven't heard anything since. (App is complete)

    Also, a senior in my class has received an appointment to USMA. Does this diminish my chances? Does USMA not like to take more than one person from one school?

    - her appointment is through a different nominating source than mine

    Any insight/feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    My DS got an LOE to West Point in October and is also still waiting. He also got an appointment to USNA along with two of his high school classmates. I was surprised USNA picked three in the same high school, but it can happen. USNA isn't West Point, but I would stay optimistic!

    Did you go for a visit? I don't know if it makes a difference or not, but my son got an LOE in October and was advised to make a visit if at all possible. He went up in November for an overnight stay. He was just offered an appointment two days ago. An LOE isn't as strong as an LOA, but from what we were told, it's still a good sign. :)

    The service academies do not put much weight if any to visits and summer seminar. Some can not afford the trip and they don't want to disadvantage them.
