    Dear Candidate,

    I've reviewed your application for admission to the United States Military Academy at West Point. The information you provided indicates that you are the type of competitive and accomplished person who will thrive on the unique blend of programs we offer.

    Also, I encourage you to complete your file as soon as possible. If you are having trouble with the candidate portal or have any questions about the application process, please let me know. I am your representative in the admissions department and am here to help. Also, anything that you would like included in your admissions file, you can send to me directly and I will get it uploaded to your file.

    Thank you for your prompt attention to this and please let me know if you have any questions.

    Go Army!



    I don't think it's a LOE because they usually invite you to an overnight visit.

    Sounds like your rep introducing himself.

    I think it is a letter of encouragement. because the academic year is just starting this upcoming Monday, you cant get an overnight visit right away, but I bet if you call for one in a month you would get one. My son got an appointment to both USMA and USAFA in mid January last year, and had a very competitive application (RC said he would have likely received an appointment in any district), but never received either a LOA or a LOE. Think those things depend on the RC.

    That email is from your RC, who after reviewing your file, has deemed you a competitive candidate and is encouraging you to finish your file.
    You are correct in that it is not a LOE. What makes a LOE a LOE, is the offer of an overnight visit. It doesn't mean that you could not receive one later.
    So - listen to your RC and complete your file and complete it as soon as you can!
