    I received an update on my portal today saying I was found fully qualified, but due to class size could not be appointed, is this a QNS? And if so am I still technically in the running for an appointment since some kids get appointments even after being rejected? I emailed my RC right after I saw the update and asked him if I can go ahead and open a new application, I explained that I am still waiting on USAFA and USNA decisions and have my Plan B in place where I am going into the Chemistry Dept. and asked for his advice. Any advice here?

    Yes, that is a QNS (Qualified but Not Selected).
    I will never say never when it comes to WP Admissions (I've seen some crazy things), but it is highly unlikely that you are still realistically in the running. That is why they sent you the QNS. It is meant to not keep stringing you along so that you can proceed with Plan B.
    Good move to email the RC and get their advise.

    As buff81 stated, "unlikely still in the running" This is why having a Plan B is so important. I do hope you reapply next year.

    I spoke to my RC. He told me to wait until after R-Day before opening a new one.

    I agree, but it's not impossible, just improbable. RC told me to wait till after R-Day. I plan on reopening applications to all three academies if I get 3 TWE

    Please consider prep school and/or college taking courses that mirror Plebe year. Do what it is needed to demonstrate you can pass the academics. During Plebe year, you'll be taking a minimum 18 credit load.

    If you open another portal for the class of 2021 can they not call you in if something happens?

    Are the QNS being updated to portal or mailed? Does that vary by region? I had just read of portal so far I believe but I noticed some had gotten TWE by mail and some just portal.

    Still waiting here.... best of luck with plan B. So many great candidates thatxwill go on to do great things!

    I am a current cadet at West Point and I just want to say do not give up hope after a QNS. I received my QNS around this time as well. However a month later I received my acceptance letter. Miracles happen.

    For those that are QNS and want to reopen your application for 2021 right now, but realizing you can't, there is a reason. The only part for 2021 that is open right now is the Candidate Questionnaire, the part used to screen to see if you move on. The main part of the application will not open until the summer, so if you decide to reapply, that is when your application will "reopen". You do not do the CQ again, and many pieces of your application carry over, while some you will need to update. I highly advise all those that are thinking about reapplying to get good contact info from your guidance counselor and have them send your final HS transcripts at the end of the year. Your file will be able to take on updated documents like those final transcripts and new test scores.

    Do you know if we will have to get new SOE's if we are reapplying next year or if they will carry over? I know that it can be harder to get to know your professors while at university.

    You will need new ones. The only thing that carries over is DoDMeRB.
