    do we get notified by the admissions when our district nomination slates are reviewed? Because i have no idea whether im currently in the NWL competing for the 150 NWL appointment or waiting for my district slates to be reviewed...

    No, you are not notified. Our DS, who is a Plebe, never has found out whose slot he was charged against. He got his appointment last year with the first wave in January, but didn't know if he was originally slotted as the district winner and then later shuffled to use the Presidential Nomination or came off the wait list. We know he wouldn't have been charged against the Senator's nominee, though, as he had selected a Principal Nominee (not my DS). It can change as they shuffle things around, through out the appointment cycle, too. In the end, another kids from our same district received an appointment in April, so we suspect if our DS was "originally" the district winner that he was later shifted to be charged against the Presidential slot or NWL.

    According to letters on portal WP eliminated rolling admissions for this cycle, and all qualified applicants are placed on a National Waiting List until appointments are made. Most appointments will be made Feb. 26th- May 1st. I am paraphrasing, but this is generally what is stated.
