    How do you know if a nomination is principal or alternate?

    It depends on the wording of your nom letter. It will say whether you are one of those, but if it doesnt, your nom source might send an unranked slate to west point. At that point, west point decides who will receive the offer based on the candidates' WCS.

    Ask your Congressman directly.

    DS has 2 nominations listed on WP Candidate portal. Hasn't received any letters, emails or calls regarding his nominations from anywhere. Is it better to assume he's on the NWL and wait it out (while continuing to build his file) or contact his FFR or congressman to inquire about his status?

    just wait. It's usually happens in reverse. Get a letter from your MOC about your nomination than your candidate portal changes. The MOC is supposed to update an internet portal to let the admissions office know which applicants that the MOC gave nomination.

    For most competitive districts, the admissions committee hasn't pick vacancy winner(s) yet, so premature to think that your DS is going over to the national waiting list.
