    On my home tab for my portal a blue official correspondence box is displayed and was uploaded within the last half hour. At this time it says "You have no official correspondences from West Point Admssions at this time."

    I imagine that they are preparing for the 26th...Does anyone know about this addition or have a similar case?

    I am not taking this as a good or bad sign, just as a new addition. If anyone has any insight into this it would be much appreciated, thanks!

    My DS's portal has the same update. Were there any other updates or changes? If this is something that people have seen in the past, will it change in regards to an offer?

    None that I can see at this time. Is your DS a principal nominee, LOE recipient, minority or recruited athlete? I am none of the above.

    Same here

    DS also has this on his home tab.... can't remember if it was there earlier or not. Could be on the same lines as the upload doc tab that appeared in December. Take this as a good sign that you are not forgotten :eek:

    DS also now has same update. We do not know if he is a principle nominee, and he is not a recruited athlete or minority.

    The Blue Box

    I am wondering this as well.

    My DS also has "the blue box" on his home tab. He is not a recruited athlete and he did not receive a LOE. He does, however, have 2 nominations (JROTC and Congressional).

    Portal and mailbox stalking begins!

    Take a deep breath....

    As I sit here looking at my tea leaves, I ask everyone to take a breath and look at what is known. We know the first offers will begin on the 26th of February and more than likely conclude for the majority 1st of May. This is just probably an update to everyone portal to help communication run more effectively. (Odd how the Army has satellites for comms)

    My tea leaves just gave me a message.....

    wait for it, wait for it....

    "Be patient" is the message!!

    Push Hard, Press Forward

    Got it too, and I'm not any type of special person. I expect that will be updated on the 26th and we'll get an envelope whenever we get an envelope XD

    Back in the olden days (5 years ago), info would show up on the DoDMERB portal (we saw the LOA on that before it arrived). However, this was before the USMA portal was utilized. Just another place to stalk, I guess...:rolleyes:

    Will this blue box be where the decision will appear? What is its purpose?

    Tug, I just realized we must drink the same tea. It's right there on the back of the little tab at the opposite end of the string that the tea bag is attached to.

    Actually I remember seeing the then-candidates posting on here about that, even just a few years ago. I thought it was pretty funny at the time, no lie. :biggrin:

    Take a deep breath guys... I'm picturing everyone clicking "refresh" on the portal on your laptops while sitting next to the mailbox, waiting for the mailman! Though I won't deny any of that for myself.

    The blue admissions correspondence box doesn't reflect any status on whether you are in or not. I'm not sure who does and doesn't have the box but mine is blank and I already have an appointment. My guess would be that it is for communication later on in the process as we get closer to rday
