    Hi,

    This may sound stupid, but how will West Point notify you of your appointment? I read through some of the threads and they say either they are notified from the candidate portal or from a random package in the mail. I would like to know.

    Thank you.

    1) They will notify your nominating source first, giving perhaps 72 hours for the congressman /senator to call you. Some do. Some don't.

    2) USMA will then mail out the BFE.

    3) A few days to a week after the BFE is mailed , the portal will update. The BFE will arrive before the portal updates.

    Oh The Humanity…...

    This is why the agony of waiting, stalking the mailman can be so stressful. The important thing to do as you watch the clock (it may even go backwards) is to progress forward with your grades, keep out of trouble and occupy yourself with Plan B.

    Think about the greater chance of not being selected, however, you still want to try again. Look at prep schools, look at public colleges to enroll in.
