    Once a candidate receives a nomination (that precedes an appointment) does West Point typically send a letter of congratulations or any other correspondence?

    For my son, it was listed on the "Nominations" section on candidate's status page and he received a letter from the senator. Beyond that, no, our experience was that the academy didn't further acknowledge it at this stage.

    Nope. I think it would be safe to assume that nothing from WP came to me after getting nominated that nothing is sent out to other nominees

    Thanks. I guess we'll wait through the next stage of this journey.

    My son received 3 nominations to West Point and didn't get any correspondance until the Appointment came. Of course, now, the correspondance is like an avalanche of paper work! :yllol:

    Good luck in your wait.

    I've received a LOA and my nomination showed up on the portal today. How long does it usually take for an offer of appointment to show up on the portal or to receive an offer in the mail? Which one usually occurs first?
