    Nominations show up like everyone else's nomination - anytime from now to the end of January.
    As for appointments - that is variable and depends on the candidate and their package. Don't look for one generally until Jan or Feb at the earliest and may not arrive until April/May- they usually want the semester grades, at least.

    Nomination

    It really varies when preppies receive their nomination. I know of someone who have receive their nomination 6 days prior to reporting in. I received mine in May.

    I think you might mean when preppies get their appointments. Noms must be in January 31st regardless of it the candidate is a preppie or not. Appointments can come at anytime but historically preppies wait a little longer.

    On another note, I know this didn't really apply to this exact topic but it seemed reasonable to comment on it here anyway- preppies do require a nom. I know that the preppies are told over and over again they need a nom yet every year a few do not go to their MOC for a nom. If a preppie does not apply for a nom the MOC will know they are at the prep school and need a nom but will typically not provide a nom unless the preppie actually goes through the process to apply for one (can't show favorites etc). I know of several instances where this has occurred and the preppie ended up with a problem getting a nom. Yes, the SA does have sup noms but if the preppie does not take the initiative to try to get a nom through other sources the SA typically sees that as a lack of interest/dedication and does not provide a sup nom.

    I'm going to NAPS this coming July, and we're supposed to go ahead and have our nomination applications in before we report. I'm looking at the same applications I filled out around this time last year but I'm confused as to who I get recommendations from. The applications say I need recommendations from academic counselors...should I get them from my high school counselors again? And also it asks for a copy of my transcript. Should I wait until I start NAPS to send in a transcript or should I send a high school one? Do I still send ACT/SAT scores?

    A lot of questions but I would really appreciate the help!
