    Is anyone else still waiting for the portal to open? My DS has been patiently waiting, but it is still not open. He has almost completed everything for the other two academies and has his DoDMERB exam scheduled, but is still waiting for the WP portal to open. WP is his first choice, but it looks like it will be that last one that he gets to complete.

    Yes. My DS is still waiting for USMA to open.

    In contrast, Annapolis opened for him way back in June, and he has already interviewed with his B&G officer and he just got an invitation for the CVW.

    Ok, thanks. Son has USAFA interview on Friday, and is scheduling his BGO interview for the following week. CVW for the USNA is scheduled for September.

    He is trying to get everything done before school so he can focus on his grades and activities.

    Same thing happened to me. Moved from July 1, to August 13, to August 20. I think the same thing happened last year.

    Not entirely true, last year my file opened July 25th.

    Iowa, these dates are posted in our candidate portals under the overview tab.

    They're on the portal "initial evaluation will begin on August 20 at the earliest for candidates." Or something like that.

    Ok thanks. I'll tell the DS to look for that. School resumes next week, so he definitely will not be done before school starts.

    The portal (2nd step) will open no later than 20 August.

    However, all files will not be opened. If you have not submitted your SAT scores and/or your file is weak it will not be opened. If WP decides to not open your file you should get a letter from Admissions explaining why your file is not progressing.

    IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT DURING THIS ENTIRE PROCESS THAT YOU SUBMIT ALL REQUIRED DATA QUICKLY.

    How long does it take to receive that letter and is it possible they just didn't open my portal on August 20 but it will happen soon?

    We had hoped the file would open before DS left for college, but since it didn't I sent a note today after reading posts: files opened today...hoping yours did. Got a response back: already submitted X,Y, and Z. Good luck to all the reapplicants. Hoping for no TWEs for any of you!

    Just curious, to whom did you send the note? (Email).

    I believe she is referring to sending a note to her college freshman who is reapplying.
