    DS just saw something posted to the USNA CANDIDATES Facebook page posted by Judi Hanley:

    "April 15: All class of 2019 candidates will be notified by this date"

    Is there anything to this pronouncement?

    It also said that May 1st was the deadline for appointees to notify USNA of their intentions

    So, on April 15th, a candidate could be waitlisted as well as TWE'd?

    Or offered NAPS or Foundation or waitlisted NAPS as well.

    From USNA admissions page(emphasis theirs)
    .... Most candidates will be notified of their final status by April 15.
    All appointees should notify the Admissions Office of their intention to accept or decline by May 1.


    As has been posted on these forums, there were some in the past that received offers in the days just before I-day and scambled to get there.

    Anythinig can happen!

    Last year on April 15th those who had no heard yet were notified if they were waitlisted for USNA, waitlisted for NAPS, TWE or on the NWL. So they knew where they stood, but not necessarily their final disposition.

    Does anyone know if the 150 "mandatory" appointments from the NWL have been determined yet?

    dzn, some info from posts a couple years old on this italicized words not mine.
    USNA National Pool

    West Point uses the term "National Waiting List" and USNA uses the term "National Pool". They are one and the same. These are qualified candidates who are not the vacancy winner for their nomination. Candidates in the National pool did not receive any notice that they were in the pool-they just were as fully qualified non-slate winners.

    USNA Wait List.

    Later on in the spring - some USNA candidates may be notified they are on the "Wait List". This is a very select list of candidates who may or may not be called depending on last minute appointees canceling out.

    From what I've read on previous year's threads, these candidates received a letter letting them know they had been placed on one of three wait lists, USNA, NAPS or Foundation.

    I have read that they sometimes take as many as 50 from the list, sometimes none so it really depends on the number of class slots, appointees that accept and if they need to fill any vacancies in the class.

    There is no mandatory number of appointees that must come from the USNA Wait List.

    If we are fortunate enough to get on it at this point, DS would probably re-apply next year as that means he is/was very "close" to being a direct appointee and he would work with his RD to identify that area of his application that kept him from crossing the direct appointment threshold. Of course, that depends on how well he's doing at plan B and if he wants to leave there or not!

    Good luck!

    We have heard nothing yet, and I am very intrigued by what you mean "work with the RD". DS never worked with anybody, including his BGO, so I wonder if he missed some advantage? What did others do?

    Don't worry, Mom529 - DS did not work with his BGO (or anyone else) during the application process. It was one 3+ hour interview and then not a word. We will see his BGO at a school ceremony for the students who are going to service academies, have ROTC scholarships, or are enlisting, but otherwise they really have had no contact. I know from reading these forums that some BGOs are heavily involved, some are somewhat involved, and some do the bare minimum...and it doesn't seem to affect results much.

    Best of luck to your DS - he's still in it!

    Your RD is your admissions representative for your district. If not appointed, they may be able to give you feedback on areas of your application that you may want to improve on such as STEM classes with good grades, or more leadership etc.... The office of admissions may be able to do the same if you decide to re-apply.

    BGO can offer suggestions as well as they have often seem some many candidates they know who has areas of weakness to improve.

    I don't believe they "coach" applicants once an applicant has opened an application.
