    I am 3'Qd with a nomination and I was placed on the NWL. When does the admissions committee start awarding appointments from the NWL pool?

    Also if anyone has been awarded an appointment off of the NWL, please comment with your state, nomination type, and basic credentials.

    USMA,
    I don't believe anyone placed on the NWL will receive appointments until sometime in March. The NWL is a pool of 3Q candidates. In that pool are applicants of different backgrounds - race, academic, athletic, minority, leadership qualities... From what I understand about the NWL, the USMA uses the NWL to balance out their incoming class. That is how the prospectus shows certain acceptable percentages of female, minorities, academic capabilities...

    I finished my application in early January... I had to wait until my first semester Prep School transcript was sent to the Academy.
